Coloring Challenge Day 27

Happy Monday! 
It's day 27 of the coloring challenge already, where has March gone? The good thing is it's only 4 more sleeps until my birthday. 
I love this flower stamp by CAS-ual Fridays so I decided that I would use it for their current challenge. 

To make my card I started with a top folding card base and a stencil. I used some Lawn Fawn mermaid ink and a dauber to create my background. I colored the floral image from the Truth Is set with Copic markers for the 30 Day coloring challenge at The Daily Marker. To finish the card I added a small butterfly from the Be set.

I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today with this card made for the Spring Coffee Lovers hop and the 30 days of coloring at The Daily Marker
I started with a top folding card base, a piece of Perfectly Plaid paper by Lawn Fawn and some hot press watercolor paper. 
I stamped the cup image from the set Special Blend  using Raven ink by Brutus Monroe and colored them using Zig cleancolor real brush pens. I used a stitched border from My Favorite Things. Since I used watercolor paper I also used the MISTI to ensure a crisp image.

I know St Paddy's day is come and gone, but I am just getting a chance to make a card for The Ton's challenge of Lucky.

To make my card I used a white top folding card base and another white scrap of card stock. I used a brayer and covered the entire panel with Mowed Lawn distress ink, next I used the Dahlia Close Up Background stamp and sprayed water on it and layer it down on my Mowed Lawn panel for about 5 seconds, this left this gorgeous pattern in the paper. My intention was to use it as my background, but then I decided it would make a gorgeous dress for the Haute Wedding Dress. I colored her using Copic Markers and added the "lucky" greeting to finish my card.
This one is also for day 20 of the 30 day coloring challenge at The Daily Marker.

Calling All Sistahs March Bloghop

Happy Friday and Happy St. Paddys Day!
 I know where is my green right?
Pink is a little more important than green today because today is our reminder bloghop for all the Sistahs to get themselves checked.  If you remember, last month was my day to get my yearly mammogram and just to let you know it came back normal! YAY
I have several friends that have been through or currently fighting the breast cancer battle plus I lost my mom to breast cancer and that is why I participate in this hop as often as I can to remind other Sistahs to get them checked.

Did you know that 50% of the proceeds from all sales from the Calling All Sistahs collection goes towards breast cancer research? yep so place your order and help us find a cure for this horrible disease. 
And Michele (owner of CAS-ual Fridays stamps) is giving away 3 $15 gift certificates to 3 lucky commenters so be sure to comment on everyone's blog for a chance to win.
