I made this card for a friend who's a big baseball fan. His favorite team is the Chicago Cubs so I tried to stick to their team colors, red and blue. I used a dauber and some brown ink to make the ball look dirty and worn in. That part came out better than I expected....

I hand-colored this Pit Bull pup image by Jamie Delacruz with my Zig Clean Color waterbrush markers. I know it's hard to tell scale from just a photo so the overall size of the frame (from Michaels) is 11 x 13" and the opening is 8 x 10". I added some detail to the flowers with white Nuvo Crystal Drops. I just love this pretty little princess (or handsome prince)!

I was in the mood to make a black and white card but I ended up adding some light yellow and gold, which I think I'm okay with. I got all the paper and embellishments from a very old Anna Griffin bundle. The stamp is from the CTMH "For Every Occasion" stamp set and the ink is Memento in "Tuxedo Black". The loopy punch is Martha Stewart and the corner rounder punch is Fiskars.

This tag is another one I made using the Hunkydory "Kaleidoscope" collection. Sorry about the glare in the pic. I used some CTMH Liquid Glass on the center circle and it's almost impossible to photograph without glare. All the coloring was done with my Zig Clean Color waterbrush markers and Wink of Stella glitter pens. The ribbon is from Martha Stewart and the layers are separated with 3M foam tape.
