2 challenges....

I have been working on these 2 cards for 3 days!! I am so happy they are done and they will be on time! Yippee.... I have made a few cards and they were long overdue for challenges. Anyways the first one is for the gorgeous sketch over at Ismaki.The option was brown and red. I had to make a card for my boss who had us over for dinner on Saturday and I wanted to use this image, as his kitchen was full of apple stuff. Then I found this paper and thought it went perfect!! I had colored this image in 3 times!! Then I decided to forget about using red for her clothes and went with browns. I have serious trouble with red all the time!!

Paper: MME
Inks: distress inks
Accessories: buttons and twin ~ stash, ribbon ~ walmart


My second card is for the sketch challenge over at ROP. I needed to make a b-day for a party Kelsey is going to on Friday. It is for a 7 year old so that is why I have alot of sparkle and pink.I also thought this image would be perfect! My girls just love them ~ maybe even more than the bellas! (LOL) I have had these for 2 weeks and finally got to color one in! I think I will enjoy these as they are so nice to color!

Paper: Basic Grey
Ink: distress inks, twinkling h2o's
accessories: buttons and twine ~ stash, brads ~ Heidi Grace

Your all probably getting sick of my buttons and twine but it is a good way to use them up. My Aunt gave me a shoebox full of buttons that had belonged to my grandmother so I have a ton of them!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!!
