2 cards today

I had a good card day today and yesterday. I got the Alexa stamp set from Missy B designs and just had to make a card with it cause it is so cute. I decided to try the sketch challenge by Heartfelt Greetings again, but I changed it up a little. This little girl is paper pieced using some CM DP that I had laying around. I even paper pieced her hair. Then I added some stickles but got my finger in it as usual. Then some white gel doodles and ribbon from Jody. I used the CM cutting system to cut the oval and the ticket corner punch. I love this card. It makes me happy to look at it.
I admired a card made by Colleen Schaan in a post she made for Craft Critique and she was so kind as to email me back telling me it was a Hampton Arts Friends set from HL. So today I searched it out and came home and made this card. I am a frugal person (you wouldn't know it if you looked at my studio) and found this card base that I had stamped with Seeing Spots and I had some of this SU DP left from a project, so thought how can I use this with scraps. So, this is what I came up with. The flower is one I had made quite awhile ago by clear embossing one of the flowers from Delight in Life and adding some dazzling diamonds in the center. It matched the scrap I used to mount the saying on. I used the sepia versafine ink for the first time too and I loved the way it stamped. I am very pleased with this card. Thank you Colleen. Hope it meets with your approval.
I am so much enjoying these cards that I make and your comments mean the world to me. Thank you so much.
Thanks for checking in today.
Cheryl out!!!
