Whiff of Joy times 2!!!

This first card is from WOJ challenge #17. It is a fabulous sketch by Donalda! It started off as a masc. card but then I changed my mind. It is more feminine looking to me. I did however have to rotate the sketch so that I could use this image. Loved this sketch and I can see using it often.

Paper: Cosmo Cricket
Inks: distressed inks, spica glitter pen
Accessories: Flowers ~ Prima, spacers ~ Marlene (eBay store), twine ~ stash

This second card was from Challenge #16 ~ to make a Valentine's card. I used the sketch from Basic Grey. Well Weds. came and went so I thought I would just put it in at the Basic Grey Challenge but then had a hard time getting a good picture so I finally got one this morning after the challenge was over!! Oh well. This is Lauren's valentines card. This was another gorgeous sketch to work with. I really should just color the images in as I make the card huh!! Now I only have to make Rachel's card but she is tough because she is usually glued to my side!

Well thanks for visiting ~ I appreciate all the comments I get. My only feedback at home is from a 4 year old who doesn't ever want to hurt my feelings!! (LOL) So thanks again and I hope you all have a great evening!!
