More challenge cards & A BIG congrats!!

Happy Sunday to you!! I hope the weather is as beautiful where you are as it is here!! All I have to say is FINALLY!!! It has been so cool and gloomy here for so long, the last couple of days is very welcomed!!
My first card for today is for the Our Creative Corner challenge. This is the first challenge that has been posted and I was so excited to play along!! I used a Whipper Snapper image Little Girl with Dotted Present, I received the image from a friend of mine on the PIF thread on SCS. Isn't she just the cutest?! I colored her using my Prismacolor Pencils, gamsol and blending with stumps. I ran the Blush Blossom panel through my cuttlebug using the Happy Birthday folder. The dp is from K & Co, I couldn't resist using dotted bright pink paper and same for the ribbon!! The flower is a Prisma flower with a orange Bella Bauble in the middle.

My next card is for today's featured stamper challenge on SCS and also my wonderful hubs fathers day card. I received this image through the PIF thread on SCS also, Old Truck from TAC. What a great image this is!!! Again I colored it using my Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol and blending stumps. I was coloring this image yesterday during one of my sons baseball games. One of the dad walked by and said it was "awesome", I felt so good!!! I stamped the Sanded background from SU on close to cocoa cardstock using always artichoke ink. I wanted to create a framed type look so I used my large oval Nestabilites, cutting it large enough for the image. That layer is attached to always artichoke and the card base is kraft cardstock. I attached Sunflower Dew Drops along the side.
Lastly I need to shout out a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to my very good, sweet and wonderful friend Denise. She has been chosen the highest honor on SCS to be on the Dirty Dozen!!! If you have not seen her wonderful creations you need to RUN not walk to her blog or her gallery and check it out!!! Her work is absolutely amazing and she is most deserving of this honor!!! As luck would have it, when I was in Ocean City last month with her and Janice, we happened to be with her the very moment she received the phone call being asked to join. I have been so very happy for her since that day and so extremely excited for her!!! Way to go Pea!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy what is left of the weekend!!
