More Cards, More Challenges ...

Well I went back to school today after a week of snow closures, I have some time to make up from when I didn't get in last week but I when I looked at the box of cards that I created during those snowy days I was really pleased. The snow where I live is mostly still here but it has also been joined by its friend thick ice and it is so cold that I can imagine it will be here for several weeks yet. Anyway, onto the cards that I wanted to share.

This first card is for the current Just Magnolia challenge, to add sparkle. Well sparkle should really be my middle name and I used my favourite stardust Stickles on all the edges as well as pretty Doodlebug glitter on the chipboard star. The little Magnolia was stamped with Jane's stamp when we got together for a crafty weekend with some friends. The red and white Divine Twine bakers twine, gingham ribbon and teeny tiny silver bells are all from Ribbon Girl and the papers are from this Nitwit digital kit


My second card for today is my entry into the Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge, I loved the sketch and decided to use a little giftcard pocket on the front of the card so that it becomes a giving card.

The papers are from this Sweet Shoppe digital kit and the silk ribbon, Stickles, pink Divine Twine bakers twine and more of those teeny tiny bells are from Ribbon Girl

Both these cards are great. I love the Magnolia stamp, and the WMS challenge card is super.

Be safe, and take care on the icy roads.
