A couple of Challenges!

Happy Saturday!!! It sure is a Happy one for me for I didn't have to work today YIPPEE!!! Love those Saturdays!!! So before I started all my housework I thought I would have some play time.
This first card is a Thank you Card I made for Crissy but didn't want to show it till I knew she had received it. I had won the very gorgeous Mildred stamp from HH from her blog candy and just had to ink her up and so I made her the Thank you card. She has been colored with my copic's. All the punches are from SU and really not sure of the papers.

Now for my first Challenge card this weekend. I just had to use this gorgeous sketch that Judy made over at The Sugar Bowl!!! Lovely Judy really enjoyed using it.

I have used one of the new Manga girls from Sugar Nellie, and Oh how I just love these new stamps they are so easy to color. I have used my MS border punch and some raffia ribbon that a very dear sweet friend of mine sent me. And the please include in the challenge is handmade flowers and you all know I love making my flowers so this part was really easy. I used my MS branch and leaf for my flowers along with the retro flowers and on the large one is a paper flower I was sent by another one of my dear friends over in the UK. Don't they just have the cutest stuff?? Now I know you all will love using this sketch from Judy so make sure you go over to The Sugar Bowl and join in all the fun.

Now for my second challenge today I have used a sketch from Sketch Saturday!!! This Magnolia image had not even been inked up yet (I know a shame ) so I made sure I got it used this weekend and I really didn't add all the papers I should have from the sketch for I didn't want to cover up my jungle paperlol. I have used my McGill leaf punch around my image and the wording is from HH. I also used my MS punch and the ribbon is just from my stash.
I sure hope you all are having a great weekend. I need to get my house work done and then finish a project I have going for a friend at work. Thanks so much dear friends for stopping bye!!! Big Hugs!!
