two challenges today!

Yippee...are you as excited as me that it's Friday?!! Only one more sleep till I go to see Michael Buble! I can hardly stand it....mmmm that voice just melts me like butta!! I'm also pretty excited about a night on the town with my hubby!! :)
Ok, Ok...on to card stuff...although I wouldn't mind spending more time on will get enough of that after the concert though!! I made this card for today's LSC over at are the rules...
only one flower stamp (sentiment optional), No designer paper, No Cuttlebug, No background stamps, Any embellishments, No Rub-ons ... except for sentiments
This wasn't as tricky as I thought is was going to be and it turned out pretty ok. I used one flower & colored it in with my markers to make it more fun. I used a flower ribbon slide on some rose ribbon, added a few brads, some diamond stickles and added the sentiment with close to cocoa. I also sponged the edges to soften it a bit. EAZY PEEZY!!

what's in it?...
stamps...True Friend
paper...kraft, old olive, apricot appeal, whisper white
ink...close to cocoa, markers; old olive, regal rose, apricot appeal
accessories...silver brads, flower ribbon slide, diamond stickles
other...stamp-a-ma-jig, dimensionals, ticket corner punch, sponge
Ok...last card is for Beate's weekend sketch challenge...I love these when I get the opportunity to do them! Isn't she the greatest to do these every week!! I made this card for my new niece MK don't look too close! {of you even have time to blog surf with a new baby!} Pretty straight forward card!

I tried not to look so close and almost didn't even see the post but Adam is holding baby so I am taking some me time or blog time, whatever.

Both cards are great! I like how you used the ribbon slide on the first one and how you changed the layout to fit a long card on the second one. That baby image is so cute!
