Sketch Cards

Well I don't want to say Happy Saturday....I wish it were....but we woke up to a ton of snow...ugh! I knew there was a reason I didn't put the snow shovels away yet ;)
I will have a lot of free time today to work on some cards for blog sketches and challenges that have been posted the past couple of days. I don't think I will attempt to venture out on the roads.
This first card is for Jen's sketch on her blog i{heart}2stamp. I really like how this card came out...thanks Jen for a wonderful sketch!

I like both of these...the first is nice and elegant....and on the second I just want to tickle his little belly!
Well, glad (not really) to know Edmonton got snow too...not just the Fort. What a shock!

Oh these are both so pretty! Love the bird one-anything with brown rocks in my book.
You know how much I love the penguins! They are just way cute.Great job on both challenges

Sorry to hear you got more snow! I can understand how you get fed up of it! My kids were excited to wake up to snow this morning but it has almost all melted away now!
