As for me & my house...

Today I decided to use another of the sketches from Taylored Expressions Downloadable Sketch Book, and this sketch was for a 6x6 card. So that is where I started, I cut 1 1/4" squares out of three of the patterns of Basic Grey Lemonade Patterned Papers. I mounted 9 of those squares onto a 5 1/2" square of pink paper from the line, and mounted again onto the aqua green 6" piece.

I got a great new set of stamps called "Welcome Neighbor" off of ebay for a STEAL! They are from Stampin' Up's Sale-a-bration. They are a sweet set of houses and trees and little cloud. SO FUN! I cut several of the smallest of the Spellbinders label one out of white cardstock. THEN I stamped my images, colored them and the yard.

I also decorated the inside of this card. I have been trying to do that for a little more fun!

When I colored my image I decided it had to be sitting on some grass, so I made a hilly little yard scene. I was pretty proud of myself. I am loving these Copic Markers MORE & MORE! I am still mastering the colorless blender so if you have any tips for that one, please leave a comment - I just cannot push that color back in when I get outside the lines...
