Friendship at Sundays With Crissy

Hello everyone, I hope all are well. Today I'm showing 2 DT cards I made for Sundays With Crissy - the theme this month is a warm and fuzzy one of Friendship.  I wouldn't usually make 2 cards but we were lucky enough to have some brand new images from Crissy this month, and after colouring one and loving it that much I had to stay sitting and colour the other one up as well! Which not only tells you how adorable I found them but also how easy they are to colour too.

The 2 images are called Birdie Friend and Frog Friend....aren't they sweet? I used Copics and a little pencil to colour them up, and for the cards I used papers that were kindly sent to me as pressies over the months so I can't tell you the makes except for the dark blue paper on the boy card which is Stampin Up. Sentiments were printed out in Word on my computer, and some lace, flowers, laser-cut chippies and gems were added to the Birdie card (along with some distressing of the paper), and buttons and twine finish off the Frog Friend card.

OMG, Carole...what adorable images and you know I love your fabulous coloring!!!! I love the shabby look of the first card with the distressed edges, lace and flowers...the sweet little girl looks like she is in the middle of an English garden!!! I love the precious little boy card, too...the sentiment is adorable and I love how you added the buttons!!
Hope you are doing ok....we had a bit of a scare with a wild fire right across the road from our land but thankfully, it didn't shoot any flames across to us. The mornings are getting cooler, though, so it's nice to get out and putz in the yard. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
