Playing with Reverse Confetti & Jane's Doodles

I am back with a few more cards to share...I am on a roll. We had a dry run to the hospital the other night. I was having contraction after contraction but after being checked out and spending the night at the hospital, they sent me home. So I am sitting with my feet up and crafting my little heart out until the baby comes!

I played along with the sketch challenge at Reverse Confetti. I used the pretty Rose Garden set (it's my absolutely favourite) and inked it with my Copic markers. I kept the design simple and made some smaller cards to have on hand for friends during the next few weeks. 

Then I made a card using the Jane's Doodles "Anemone" set...I love colouring this one too! I didn't make it for any challenge...just for myself!

I had the urge to get crafty last weekend! Considering I have not crafted in months, it felt so good getting out some paper and some ink to play along with some challenges. I tried linking up my cards to challenges from my Instagram account...well that didn't work. So even though the challenges are over, here are the cards...

This is a card I made for my best friend; she lost her mom on Friday. We have all been reeling from her mother's passing. Mrs. A was like my other mum...and she meant the world to me. She could light up a room with her sparkly eyes and infectious laugh. She was full of wisdom and kindness. She had been a champion of mine my entire life. She was lovely. I knew I needed to make an extra special card for my best friend to let her know I am thinking of her. I used a Verve stamp set called "Surely Goodness" for the bloom which I coloured with my Copics. Then I used the Verve set "Floral Notes" for the sentiment.

Then I did some loose watercolouring with a Mama Elephant stamp set and my distress inks...I made it into this card below.

I kept the design simple and tried to take a good photo but is pretty dark! My photos are all taken with my phone these days as we have moved into our new space and my light tent and camera are packed away!
