Happy Easter -- Crafty Sentiments
I colored the image with copics. I used my cloud template and Ranger ink to create the sky. I added the image to a piece of scrap paper and stamped the Holly Berry House sentiment and heat embossed. I added this to a A2 size card base.

Just chicken in - Always Fun #211
I used watercolor paper and stamped the Finders Keepers old wood block red rubber stamp. I used Mission watercolors to paint this little image. I let it dry as I did other things.. Came back and stamped the Tech. Tues. sentiment and added to a card base.. Pretty much CAS.. I am getting use to this now.. I wanted so bad to add jewels but I am getting ok with CAS.. They sure are fast to create. This one made me laugh with the sentiment.. living in the country I can see this being sent out.

Happy birthday - Catch the bug Stella Says Sketch #909
So for my card I used the image called MIS Gus birthday old fart. I colored the image with copics. I dug through my scrap box and added the goldish brown behind Gus and then the blue check. I added some Washi Tape along the bottom and finished with the Simon Says happy birthday. It's a fast simple sketch. Can't wait to see what you create.

You're the bee's knees - Bugaboo Free Friday
I'm not arguing - Alphabet Challenge - B-
As soon as I saw the theme was birds. I knew where to go for my images.. Tim Holtz crazy birds. I haven't used them for awhile and thought they're perfect. I stamped and used Mission Gold water colors. I set aside to dry. I took Kraft card stock and My favorite things brick stencil and Ranger ink and created the background. I used Texture paste to create the little white lime bleeds that bricks seem to get. I added some layers of grass along the bottom using MFT die and scraps. I added some leaves coming over the brick wall and then using the dies cut out the bird. Added them with foam dots and found this fun snarky TH sentiment. I think the expression on their faces they could for sure be saying this..
" I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right... I think the yellow bird isn't buying it.. lol

I am using the image called Hand in hand. I thought the umbrella was to shade against the sun and not rain so I kept it spring and green.. I colored the image with copics. I used Simon says thin die. I grabbed some scraps that are Quick quote dp. and pieced the background. I added the Reverse confetti sentiment. I distressed the edge with Ranger ink and used a Tech. Tues. banner die.

Songs are sung by the heart - Always Fun #210
Well I finally did it.. tried painting line-less.. or what ever it's called. I stamped this Pink Fresh Studio image that was given to me by a dear friend. I stamped with Ranger ink, a light color. I then used my Shin Han watercolors and colored her. I was happy with the way it came out. I took some of the blue paint and painted a scrap of watercolor paper then stamped the sentiment and using Stampin up stitch die cut out and added to my card. I am happy with this type of painting. I think doing such a small image helped not get me lost or overwhelmed.

happy spring - Do-Al(l)Creative #52
For my card I used white ship lap paper from Quick quotes. I love the bottom colors that is in the paper. I used QQ scrap for the window which is a Taylored Expressions die. I stamped the sentiment and window flower scene and used copics. I added the window with foam to give it some depth. I used a banner die and cut out the sentiment and went around the edge with QQ chalk ink. I stamped the Paper Trey Ink happy spring. I used Simon Says circle die and chalked the edge. With this Covid stuff still going around I thought this sentiment was so true.
