Sketch Challenges

Finally able to get some cards made! I have an order of 30 birthday cards(6 men, 24 women) for the school teachers birthdays. I did the mens cards first...I find man cards very difficult to make. Then I started with the other cards. I'll show those all when I'm finished, which I'm hoping is by tomorrow evening!
I did manage to get this card done for Lauren's sketch. I needed a break from birthday stuff!
I changed the sketch a bit. There was supposed to be a sentiment in the top left corner BUT I'd already covered up tons of this really cool designer paper. I wanted something on there so I went with Circle of Friendship in the right hand corner instead....lol You can't tell from this picture but there is glitter on the snowmans buttons and hats.
I'd been trying all week to get to Jen's card challenge. Last night I sat down and made this. You were to use flower stamps, designer paper and ribbon. I wanted to try and make it look like a glass vase so I added Crystal Effects. I think it turned out okay.
Time for me to get some dinner for Chloe. Brian is hunting for the next week so it's just her and I eating. I find it hard to cook for 1 1/2 people...lol
It's hockey night tonight! Go Oilers!
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

Super cute cards Dawn!! That paper on the first one is so cute and love the CE on the vase! :) I understand the hunting thing . .only have to get dinner for me and the 4 children - which is actually easier b/c they aren't as picky! :)

Both your cards are lovely. You're right, the paper is too pretty to cover up completely. I love the snowman image and your layout is fabulous!

Your second card is pretty. I can see the crystal effects on the glass. Great job!
