Two for a Tuesday!!!!

Good Morning,
It's such a beautiful morning here and I'm making the most of it as they predict the temperature will rise to around 35c later in the day before a southerly change and a storm! Wish you could hear the bugs in my garden they're making quite a sound.
My back is far from right but I'm feeling more human again, sat and wrote my Christmas cards yesterday so they're ready for the mail box later today. I have a few more to make so using this week's sketch challenge from Jennie on Stamp TV I made today's card. I've just turned her design round on its side as I wanted to use this stamp from GKD Holiday Cheer. It's stamped in SU chocolate chip.

The card used is as follows:

Base card and matting GKD soft sand.
GKD pure luxury layering weight in pure white for the image and sentiment.
DP is a double sided paper from imaginisce called Polar Expressions and Frosted Forest. I love the colour and the forest of trees are decorated so prettily. There is also the little sparkly dots which IRL look very pretty.
A small scrap of gold shimmer card was used to mat the image. Both of the ovals were cut using Nesties.
The sentiment is from Melanie Muenchinger's Hip to be Square for GKD .
To complete the sketch I added the three copper nail heads.

Today I have a second card to show you. I love Mo Manning's digital illustrations and this one was one she very generously gave as a freebie to her group on PCP. Isn't he just perfect!!

I think this card would fit the CAS style quite well...... shame I didn't cut the white card straight across the top!!!! How is it that someone married to a man who hates anything crooked,( to the point that he straightens peoples pictures when he visits!!!) can't get things straight ???????

Back to this little card: sized and printed on GKD pure luxury layering weight in pure white.
Coloured with Prisma's and OMS.

The green card is from a mat stack and I tied the green gross grain ribbon across the bottom to finish.

I like it!

Till next time.........

Both cards are wonderful, Sue! I love how you cut the top of the vine on the digital image you got from Mo!! It really draws your attention to what the little fellow is looking at!
