Lovely

Hello there!
Just stopping by to share some cards and pictures with you...

I'm playing along with some challenges...

and 

and I am also linking this to the Paper Smooches search for an August Guest Designer and the Sparks Challenge

I used the set Blossoming Buds from Paper Smooches. I emboosed the floral boquet with gold embossing powder and colored them Copic Markers. I used black ink from Memento to stamp the sentiment on linen vellum, than fussy cut. 
The fancy border was created by using a Spellbinders labels die, labels twenty. The gold glitter cardstock and white cardstock are from Recollections. I scattered some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Next challenge,
and 

This happy little robot is from The Alley Stamps, Lighter than Air. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches, Sentiment Sampler. I used black ink from Memento and Copic Markers to color. White and black cardstock and enamal dots are from Recollections.
I added some Wink of Stella to the heart and some white accents to the robot with a white gel pen. The stitched boredr was created using border dies from Lawn Fawn.

And in honor of the US Womans Fifa Cup winners...Way to go Team USA!!!!!!
I want to share some pictures with you...we were able to attend the semi-finals in Canada with my daughters travel soccer team where we played a scrimmage against two Canadian teams!!!


and here is my baby girl ( white #8)


Thanks for stopping by for a peek!!!!!!
