SCACD Friends with Heart DT Card

It's Tuesday and time for another SCACD Friends with Heart Challenge :D
Our challenge #13 this week is to make a Clean and Simple Card!!
All you have to remember is to use a stamp that Susana carries in the SCACD Store~~~easy enough seeing she has oodles of stamps~~YEAH!!!!

I made a Christmasy Card using "Snowflake Friends" stamp found HERE!!
Oh I Love this saying!!!
I usually add more detail to cards and when I decided what to make --it took me all of 20 minutes :) Kinda fun to create a card soooo very quickly~~And I really do like it!!!
Used navy speckled CS that I had in my stash.  Stamped Snowflake Friends Saying with White VersaColor ink.  Stamped stars are a Great Impressions stamp that I got from my Mom~~Thanks Mom :D  Other snowflakes made with Sizzix Snowflakes #15  and then topped with Sandylion snowflake stickers!!!   Super quick and easy!!!
Inside stamped using Inkadinkado stamp and same white versacolor ink.  
Angled view to show the snowflakes dimension :0)

SCACD Friends with Heart DT Card

Hello SCACD Friends!!!
I {heart}Tuesday's cuz...... it is the day for a new challenge with tons of fun at SCACD Friends with Heart Challenge Blog!!!
Our challenge #10 is a sketch 
New Month~~~New prizes!!!!

This is my take on the sketch using Beach Bonita by VC for SCACD from the Sweet Meets Sassy Collection
I wanted to distress color with my copics :)  I chose Copics (V91, 93, 95 with W1, 3) and I do like the way it turned out :)  I wish my hair was this pretty and looked like this~oh wait not this color LOL~ In my era we all wanted the Famous Farrah Fawcett Hair--LOL.   Just love how the Viva Decor Iced white Pearl pen helped me make the string of pearls in her lovely hair!!! Susana has Viva in many colors and varieties~~Go and see!!
Papers are Paper Co. cardstock and MM vintage findings dp.  The ribbon is silver--kinda looks white in photo:)  Hearts made with SB heart nesties and the larger has a MM embossed metal heart. The littler hearts have an irock gem on them.  
Showing the shine of diamond glaze, pearl pen, ribbon and papers.
Inside:  the heart is a SB scallop with an epoxy heart sticker and a couple purple irocks.
