Some Challenge Cards

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you all had a nice day.

It is quite cold here today but the sun is shining. Apparently we are going to have ANOTHER Nor'easter this Wednesday and yet another foot of snow. I cannot wait for March to be over at this rate. I do not want any more days off from work!!

Today I am sharing two cards that I created for some challenges. The first card is for CAS(E) This Sketch #263.

I have been using some of my pile of never opened product and dug out the "Make Mine Lemon Lime" by Spellbinders and the sentiment from Sugar Pea Designs "Pucker Up" stamp set.

I shaded in the lemon and the lemon slice with some "Mustard Seed" and "Squeezed Lemonade" Distress ink. I also covered the online in the slice and the heart with Tonic's Aqua Shimmer Glitter Pens and Glossy Accents.

The strip of patterned paper is from the Recollections "Coastal Village" paper pad that I picked up at Michael's this weekend.

I added some google eyes and a smile to complete the card.

Here is the sketch that inspired this card:

While I was on this fruit theme, I created another simple card for the Fab Friday Challenge, Sketch #133.

I took a little liberty from this sketch and hope it will be accepted. Instead of a square, I used a lime die cut from the Queen and Company "Fruit Basket Kit." I bought this last spring and had never done anything with it so I pulled it out to make some cards.

I actually made a few cards from this kit but will post them at a later date.

I shaded the limes with Twisted Citron,Mowed Lawn,” and Peeled Paint” Distress Ink.

Well, that is all from me tonight. Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday!!
