A happy one and a sad one

Two cards today, but this is going to be a super short post, as a) I'm at my Mum's and b) we just spent 6.5 hours in the car, and I'm ready for bed!
The first card is a sympathy card I made for a co-worker, the stamps are CTMH, the cardstock is Stampin' Up. I used the Color Chef challenge of bamboo, black and tulip. The bamboo became kraft, as I'm seriously addicted to it, see the second card as more proof!

The second card is also CTMH stamps and Stampin' Up paper, another card for a co-worker who used to work for an airline. Cute, huh?
Colors - Color Q
Sketch - Everything but the Kitchen Sink
Window - Little red Wagon
2 of something - Stamp Something
Have a good long weekend for those Canuks who are reading, and a good regular weekend for the rest of you!

Two Hours!

Well, after staring at paper and ink for 2 whole hours, I did finally manage to produce this card. I do like the finished result, mostly - but I'm not sure it was worth the time. Mind you, I was watching Lost, so that may be a small part of my problem!
The sketch is from CPS, the colour scheme is a badly mangled version of the Color Chef's challenge, sorry Kelly Jo, (I substituted gold for cream, but then I couldn't make black work with what I had, so I ended up with only 1 of the 3 colours!) and I used sparkle and shine for Papertake and metallic (gold paper) for Fab n Funky.
Well, after all that, I better go chuck it in the mail and hope my friend likes it!
See you!

Happy Mother's Day

Well, last night saw me frantically whipping up a Mother's Day card, as for some reason DH thought it was next week, and I was a goof and believed him. This won't to my Mum on time, but at least she'll know it's coming!
Lots of challenges for this one:
sketch - Sketch Girl
colours -Color Q
Mother's Day card - Pink Elephant and Heart 2 Heart
boy colours - Pile It on (they didn't say boy card, just boy colours!)
decorative edge - Fab & Funky
Everything is CTMH except the turquoise cardstock, that's Coredinations.
Have a good week, it's almost the weekend!
