Sunday with CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #261 and As You See It Challenge #170

Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope you are all having a great day.

I am a little grouchy today. Did a lot of errands and laundry this weekend, but not much fun stuff. I am in a funk. I think a couple days of sunshine would help as it has been gray, gray, gray!!

Today I am sharing two cards I created. The first one is for CAS(E) this Sketch #261, though it is a retro sketch. I created this card using Stamping Bella's "I Have a Secret" stamp and the "Stacked Heart" die from Simon Says Stamp.

I kept this really simple, using white card stock and a scrap of patterned paper from my stash.

Here is the sketch that inspired this card:

I loosely colored in the image using Copic Markers. I LOVE this image and want to make a bunch up to send to some close friends.

I left off the sentiment because I didn't want to use the one that came with the stamp set. The little dots from the sketch were replaced with the hearts die.

I filled in some of the hearts and used clear Sparkle marker over them.

For my second card, I used the sketch from As You See It Challenge #170. Again, I kept it very simple.

The image is from Inky Antics "Wine Time #1" stamp set and the sentiment is from their "Wine Time #2" set.

Here is the sketch that inspired me:

Again, I colored this image in with Copic markers and used a stencil with some Broken China Distress ink for the polka dots.

Instead of the hearts, I chose to add a word bubble with the sentiment.

If only this lady was sipping a beer and I would use it for my friend's birthday instead of having to make her a card now!!

That is all from me tonight. I hope you have a fabulous Monday!!
