Catching Up

I know I've been pretty quiet lately, other than posts for The Corrosive Challenges, but I have actually been making some other cards.  Thought I'd take a minute to actually post a few.  First up was a card for my boss's birthday.  He is a great guy and really tries to take care of all his employees.  He loves music, so I thought Kenny K's Madame Axe was perfect.
She is colored with Copics, and the edges of the image are sponged with Tim Holtz distress ink.  Ribbon and brads are from stash, Rock button is Making Memories "Just Chillin" badge brads, plaid paper is from DCWV Tahiti Beach Stack, and the orange is from K&Co "Edamame" Paper Pad.  Stick gems are Ki, bronze metal accents.  Here's a closer look:
And lastly, the sketch was Sketch was #196 at Sweet Sunday .  (Look familiar?  LOL)

Lucky enough for me, I just saw that the new challenge over at KennyK's Krafty Krew is "Anything Goes", so I am excited to be able to enter a challenge with this one too.
Second on the list was a card for my stepbrother, who lives in California.  Sadly because of the distance we don't get to see each other that often, but I am very excited because he is going to be out in Mass over the Christmas holiday this year, so we'll get to see him and his lovely wife who is from Australia.  I could listen to her talk all day!   

I have a hard time coming up with masculine cards sometimes.  I have had the image for this one for sometime now.  
She is "Showgirl" by Victoria Case.  Those feathers were tricky, let me tell ya!  I decided to just go crazy with polka dots with papers from DCWV Lady Couture paper stack.  

I added some black glitter to the dice she is sitting on, and embellished with me & my BIG ideas "Las Vegas" stickers.  I added glossy accents to her lips, eyes and jewels.  Sketch was and OLD one I still had printed out #53 from Sketches By Carly

So there we go, I haven't been nearly as lazy as it seems!  I may even be back later with a couple more I didn't share yet.  Stay tuned!  

Thanks for stopping by.
