Friday Sketchers # 79 and Wags ‘n Whiskers #3

Friday Sketchers - Page 046

Happy Friday Everyone! I have another Two-Card-Special for you today, so brace yourself for a long post!

I am hosting the Friday Sketchers Challenge this week. I hope you like the sketch that I have prepared and I really hope you get the chance to try it out and participate in the challenge. We have an amazing prize of TWO adorable stamps from Michelle’s Scrapbooking & More. Thank you so much Michelle, they are gorgeous!

I was in the need of a Magnolia fix so I decided to use one of my favorite stamps for my card. I love this cute stamp “Tilda with Birdcage” and although she isn’t a Christmas stamp, I thought with the right papers and coloring she would be perfect for the holidays! I know that Heidi has this one as well as the brand new Christmas ones at her store: The Stamp Shoppe.

My next card is for the Wags ‘n Whiskers Challenge. This week our diva Tina, chose the theme of buttons. I had my image all colored, the cardstock all cut out and then, horrors, the buttons that I wanted to use were not the right shade of green. EEK! So, I am a very naughty Diva and have added brads instead….they are pretty and the EXACT shade of green. I hope my fellow Divas forgive me, just don’t follow my example….follow the challenge! LOL! I used the sketch from the Create4Fun Challenge. Love all the layers!
