Day 346 and Day 347

I am caught up! Hip hip hooray... but now I have no excuse... I have to clean my craft room :(

I have two cards in this post for the 365 Cards challenges (Day 346 and Day 347). For Day 346 (Tuesday Trio), I also incorporated the sketch challenge from Mojo Mondays. The trio used in the cards were scallop, ribbon, and distressed ink. I have never really done the distressed ink, so I'm not even sure I did it correctly. I used Spellbinders for the scallop circle and the label. I hand-stamped the flower image and colored it with a watercolor technique that I am also new at!

For Day 347, I used my very first digi stamp. I used colored pencils to color the image. Spellbinders were used for the circle and scallop circle. Pop-up dots were also used to make the image pop off the page.

Now I am off to clean the house and the craft room. If I finish my "chores", I will get to reward myself and work on another first...chipboard mini album. I decided to tackle this project to focus on the birth have my new daughter. Hope it turns out great...fingers crossed!
