A Couple Card Challenges

The past couple of days have been super crazy busy making cards!
Friday are one of my favourite days of the week. Both Beate and Sharon posts challenges on their blogs.
This first card is for Sharon's challenge on her blog HERE.
You were to make a TALL and THIN card....vertical ;)
I had to run out and buy a new 1 1/4 circle punch yesterday because my other one jammed up...total bummer!
BUT...
while I was at one of the LSS I found some of the NEW Basic Grey Two Scoops DP!!
I thought it would go great with this stamp I picked up in California last summer! I've seen many people doing these cool bows. Pam Bassett has a cool tutorial on her site for doing them! Check it out...her bows are GORGEOUS.
Beate posted her sketch yesterday morning but I didn't have a chance to do it until later in the day. With the sun setting so early, I ran out of time to photograph it. Be sure to check out Beate's sketch on her blog HERE.
Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
I feel a cold coming on....ugh....

OMG! You HAVE been busy. LOVE the icecream stack. Way cute. You make me want that BG paper. Hasn't appealed to me till now.
The floral one is also gorgeous. That black makes it really POP.

Dawn, Have you ever tried Cold Fx? I did this winter and it really did work for me. I also combine it with 1000 mg of Vit C timed release. Hope you are feeling better.
