A couple of longies:)

Wow, I'm behind with my challenges this week! My desktop is loaded with sketches to do:) I did manage to get a couple of cards made today using a couple of sketch challenges. Both were for long cards so I made mine 6.5 x 3.25. Here they are:

This first card is one I've made for my nephew's 1st birthday. I just love these little critters! But I'm wishing the set had one sentiment in"for my little monkey" or something:) I really like this sketch and I think my card is alright, but if I had some In Colour polka-dot ribbon, that would have been perfect!! I'm loving this pp with these images, doesn't it kind of look like paw prints? :)

-chocolate chip, really rust, more mustard, and whisper white cs
-autumn vine dsp
-dusty durango, soft suede, crushed curry, and pumpkin pie ink
-circle punches
-white ric-rac from Beachfront ribbon originals
-Fox and Friends and Happy Moments stamp sets
I love clean and simple sketches, so this one from Card Patterns really caught my eye. I've been wanting to make some sympathy cards for my collection and I thought that the Bella Bleu DSP from SU! would be perfect. I quite like this card, but it has a couple of flaws so I don't think I'll be able to sell it, but there has been a certain someone who I've been thinking about a lot lately, so maybe she would appreciate receiving it:)
-not quite navy, basic gray, and whisper white cs
-Bella Bleu DSP
-not quite navy and basic black ink
-vintage brads
-scallop trim punch
-paper piercing tool
-Thoughts and Prayers stamp set from SU!

thanks for stopping by!
