What a wonderful sunny day!!!

Photo courtesy of June at SoArtful.

Thanks June.
I did some subtle coloring to the image with pencils and a Copic Blender.
The sentiment says "In my friend, I find a second self."
This card is inspired from a sketch at icSketches.

The paper is DCWV and Urban Rhapsody from K and Company
The sentiments are on vellum
I think this will be one of the many graduation cards I have to send this year!
Created by Hand's theme today is a postage stamp.  (Real or Faux).
I thought using the address as Home sweet Home was a fun addition.
The theme I added is Zero.  1st reason being, I have all these zero stickers laying around with no reason for them.  The second reason is "The best things in life are FREE".  So I wanted to show that it costs zero to go home!
This was too fun.  I hand drew the RAWR and the dinosaurs.
The background paper is Basic Grey Ambrosia.
The flowers are real, they are Everlastings.
The sketch is from 2 sketches for you.  (I did both of their sketches, I just didn't post them right next to each other.)
The paper is Urban Rhapsody and black card stock.
The image is Lisa's Altered Art.
The ribbon is from Papyrus.
This image is from More Ephemera from Design originals.
A plethora of buttons is the them at A Spoon Full of Sugar.
The saying is hand stamped with Alphabet stamps from Hero Arts.
This is a good brother or sister card!!!  LOL
Circles, scallops and bling (OH MY!)
There are lots of stickles on this card and the circles are glittery as well.
I love this saying.  
Tamara has a Recipe today...
Red-Round, and Rickrack.
My card is round thanks to the largest nesting circle from Quickutz.
The images are Design Originals 
I inked with Red Magic Ink from Versa Magic.
I love rickrack, now I want to go and buy some more!!!
Think Monday, Think ATC
Jewels or jewelry.
This is Ruby, who loves rubies!  Her purse, crown, and buttons are rubies.
This is the other 2 sketches 4 You.
The paper is Urban Rhapsody.
It is loaded with magenta stickles.
The image is ephemera from my stash.
The saying is Best Occasions on Vellum.
