Two for Tuesday......

Good Morning!
Today I have two cards to share.
The first one is for the Wild Orchid Crafts
challenge which is a fabulous sketch!  I know it
is late!! I have a hard time getting to my stuff on
time so this is my last card for WOC. I had to make
the difficult decision to step down from the DT.
(I had to with Just Magnolia as well!!) I thought
about it for along time because I didn't want to but
it was only fair! The girls started soccer and life is just
to hectic at the moment for any "me" time! LOL

Anyways here is my card:

I have used some gorgeous ribbon and flowers from WOC.
I love all the different sizes they offer for layering! I added
some white polka dots to match my paper.

This cutie, in case you haven't seen them yet, is from
 Teddy Bo & Co.  I just love this sweet image.
If your not into the digi stamps ~ Teddy Bo is going to
be making the images into regular stamps!! You can read
about it here.


This card is for the challenge at ASFOS. They want to see
easter cards.  Also the Shabby Tea Room has
an inspiration picture to use and they ask you to use flowers.
The blue paper almost matches the sheets in the picture

I have used another adorable image from Teddy Bo and this
one is Easter Bunny Bea!! Isn't she adorable!!! I decided to
go a tad lighter in the coloring with her.  It was done mostly
with twinkling h20's.  Again I have used more WOC
flowers and vintage seam binding. 

Both these cards follow the challenge at the Teddy Bo challenge
blog as they want to see Buttons and Bows!

Well thanks so much for stopping by!!
I hope you all have a fabulous day!

These are fabulous Kathy! Love how you added the dots to the flowers to match the DP and your colouring and layouts on both are simply perfect. I fully understand the dilemma you were faced with and how 'me' time gets swallowed up by life in general. Hugs, Maria

Kathy these cards are sooooo cute! Both are stunning! Sorry you had to step down from the DTS, but I totally understand - sometimes life just gets in the way of what you want to do and what takes priority. I love your blog so I will continue to check in everyday.

Tough decision Kathy but I'm sure it's the right one.... kids grow up very fast and then you'll have too much time on your hands, lol! I made similar decisions and now just take part in one DT, but I feel more creative because I have complete freedom!
Your cards are stunning and I do hope you'll still be posting on your blog as I love to see your gorgeous creations ;o)
Hugs Tara xx
