Making some cards

My sweet friend, Claudia was able to spend a weekend with me recently and she let me use her lovely new Swallowtail Stampin Up stamp. We did several colors of them and embossed them. Today I finally have some free time so I am making some cards. I cut this one out and put it onto some scraps of paper that I have and added a Celebrate stamp from another Stampin Up set. I may color some of them. They are so pretty!

Mix It Monthly Challenge - Feathers from Da Vinci

Over on the Mix It Monthly Challenge Conny has a challenge for us here to use a feather and the colors of mint green, grey and hibiscus. I found this picture in our local magazine of a man who shines shoes in our town. He has such an interesting face. I wanted to draw his weathered, interesting face so I decided to draw him for the challenge. I will never capture him exactly but it was fun to try.
