Holly Hobby Cards and Surprises from SBS 22 Sisters

These are the 2 cards that I was able to finish today. Actually, they've been pre-coloured for a couple of days now. The first card is for a friend who for whatever reason, wasn't able to receive the birthday card I made for her last June. I posted it but then it didn't arrive on her place. So, I promised her that I'll be sending her another one and this is it. You know the original text of "If friends were tomatoes..., they're supposed to be "If friends are flowers... but since Holly is holding a tomato and being surrounded by tomatoes, I decided to change it to "tomatoes". lol! Makes sense? ;-)

If you would notice, the Yoyo Yellow (where I matted the sentiments) has this fiber thing on sides. Well, this usually happens when I cut using my fiskars trimmer (maybe my blades need replacment now). I normally correct them by filing it but this time, I liked the look of it and just left it that way. I then matted it in Choc Chip and intentionally make the Yoyo Yellow longer than the Choc Chip (for added effect) which I think looked nice somehow. (What do you think?) All colours were picked up from the image (grosgrain ribbon picked up the tomatoes') execept for colour pink.

The second card is another Holly Hobby. I also coloured this a week ago now, and I also intentionally coloured one flower burgundy. I didn't have anything on my mind when I chose the colour burgundy. In fact, I was a bit surprised because as far as I can remember, I don't have a single cardstock having this colour. But then, as I digged deeper onto my stash (lol! digged deeper), I found these burgundy cardstocks with some other patterned paper with the same colour. So, I hurriedly grabbed one cardstock and used it here. The patterned paper which I just bought yesterday is from DCWV Far East stack...they complemented nicely, don't they? Then I used my Crayola fluroscent gel pen to put the dots around the card. The green cardstock is also from DCWV (Matchmaker collection) which I also recently bought.

And before I forget, I got surprises on the mail today! Yes!! I would like to thank Sarah for the lovely card she sent me along with stamped images. Thanks also to Peggy who sent me different images of Riley and Elzybells. Thanks heaps to both of you!!! I just received them today.
