Some MFT cards and a Beate Sketch

Happy Sunday!
Hope your weekend is going well! Is it just me or did this weekend fly by? I guess I got a lot done though so I should not complain. I'm sitting here waiting for the Nascar race to go green...darn rain delay!
Just a few cards I worked on all day. It's nice to have some quiet time to just stamp stamp stamp!
This first card is a combo of sketches that I had jotted down. It sort of happened by mistake really. I'd started with the boots and ended up cutting the cardstock the wrong size so I had to cover it up. This is a 4 x 8.5 card that will fit in a business envelope.
The picture is really crummy and I apologize. I stamped on Shimmery White Cardstock so I could watercolor the images from My Favorite Things. Also the puddle has some Crystal Effects added to it. Not sure what happened to the Bashful blue colour once I applied the CE...haha! It just disappeared.
As I was digging through all my scrap papers today I came across a few bits of this DP. I can't remember who makes it and to be honest I'm too tired to go back through my old posts to see. This MFT image is stamped on Shimmery White as well. I started to Watercolour on it but it was too light so afterwards I went back with my SU! markers and coloured it in.
My last card is another Beate's sketch I did. I just noticed I didn't post my other card on here. Guess I only loaded it to my SCS Gallery. Be sure to check out Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge on her blog HERE. I love doing them each Friday and I always so more than one if time allows.

Thanks for stopping by today!

It's almost time to go racin'!

Great cards, love the horsey one. Would like to know the manufacturer of the turquoise patterned paper if you can remember please. I want to make a card with horses for my sisters birthday and I love the colours of this card. Thanks. Andrea
