2 Sketches 4 You 29& CPS 122

I've been working on a few challenges this week and am here to share them with you. I am just so thoughtful aren't I? ;)
The first card uses Laura's fabulous sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You. I have been into making trees lately; not sure why but they are fun to make! I cut this one out of K&Co Carlyn Gavin Greenhouse Mat pad. I looove all of these papers! I popped it up on foam dots and stuck a few Candy dots by Pebbles on some of the leaves. I cut my sentiment from my Cricut using the Walk in My Garden Cart. The stitching is a K&Co rub-on (of course!) that I nabbed in the clearance section at Michael's and would looove to get more of soon. This is the most realistic looking stuff I've ever used. Anyhoo, here it is, and the cute little owl on top is on the inside of the card.

This card is made using CPS 122, which was a very simple sketch. I love this paper that I've had forever; the velvety pink polka dots are so yummy! So it was perfect to show it off with this sketch. I'm not in love with the stitching I did (this time it was handstitched) but it is there to stay now.

That's all for tonight. Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

Very cool! I'm lovin' that greenhouse paper too! I made a card with some of it a couple weeks ago and now I'm hoarding it for a scrapbook (I bought all the 8.5 pads my Michael's had!).

Have a great 4th of July!
