Into the Moonlight & Fictionally Inspired

This 1st card is from Artful Inkables and it is called Fictionally Inspired. I was so excited to find the DP at Hobby Lobby...knowing it was perfect for these images. I used my Long Nestabilities Deckled Rectangles for the Greeting. Anyone who has followed the "Twilight Series" will know about Forks, WA...LOL...The Wolf Print has a meaning, but once again you would have to be familiar with the series. The heart buttons came from my stash. The ribbon is May Arts Ivory Satin. I used SU's Punches for the paw print.


Today it is going to be raining here all day. That is not a bad thing, because down here in the South we need the rain during the summer. I had a wonderful weekend spending it with my family. We went out to eat at a fabulous Italian Restaurant. Good Grief that was the BEST Italian food I have ever eaten. We went shopping until my feet hurt, but it was a "good" hurt...LOL...can there be a good hurt? Anyhoo, I hope the rest of you had a great weekend also.


This card was a "blast" to make. Of course, I am "really" into the whole "Twilight Series" and therefore, this is one of my favorite sets from Kristin at Artful Inkables. If you are familiar with the series, they played baseball in a field and it had to be played when it was thundering, because when they hit the ball it was "LOUD!" I found this baseball paper at Hobby Lobby along with the baseball buttons. I used my Petite Circle Nestabilities and the Blossom Nestabilities. Tuxedo Black Momento Ink was used to ink up the images. I also used my Long Deckled Nestabilities to put the baseballs on. I colored with my Copic Glitter and Copic Ciao Markers.
I really appreciate all of your comments and wish you the very best of weeks...We will be havig a Blog Hop this Wednesday, so come back...so you can see all of the DT member great art work!!

Beautiful Cards Velta!! I especially love the design of the baseball card!! Gorgeous DP and layout!! SO glad you had a great time with the family. We had an awesome vacation with the family!

Thanks for your comment on my blog. You asked me about the flourishes in the corners. I made them using one of the dies from the Cuttlebug Vintage set. Hope this helps.
blessings,
Chris
