Oh, A-CardMaking I will go

On a search to find sketches to work with, I came up with several and so, I have several cards to share with you. I am only go to share a few today and more later.
This first card is my Card Positioning Systems card for this week and some of my favorite patterned papers from We R Memorys Keepers. What a fun sketch!
These tiny little cupcakes pieces are from Pretty Little Studio Etsy store.
This card was created for the Little Red Wagon challenge to "Put a Window in It". I love the peek-a-boo look that this creates and these products from Nikki Sivils just seemed like the perfect choice for my little round window. The clouds and the tiny bee came on this piece of patterned paper and I cut out the larger bee and added it with foam tape.
The little honeycomb piece and the other bee are cut from die cuts in this Willow Bee collection. You can barely see it but I added some Glitter 3-D Fashion paint by Tulip on the edges of my clouds for a little sparkle.
Because of my little inside piece, I wanted to finish the inside too so I added this great patterned paper to the inside. You can barely see the Glitter 3-D Fashion Paint by Tulip that I added to the bees wings.

And, this card uses a sketch that is posted at Caardvarks for their May challenge. It just seemed like a good time to pull out some Christmas papers.
The trees are part of one of the pieces of patterned papers in this collection by BoBunny, I just cut them out.
And, we went to the zoo this last weekend, gotta share a few photos with you.
This guy is actually pretty small but doesn't he just look menacing anyway, floating like this?
Take note, these giraffe's have an OCEAN view!!! Can you believe that?
Can you make out the flamingos in the background of my photo? I love to take pics of the flamingos but I thought this was a fun perspective with the flower in front in focus.
And, this big, cracked open egg shell is in the kids play area. Our youngest grandson was having so much fun climbing in and out.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
