CARD: Posted For You

Good morning!  What a wonderful 3-day weekend we had!  I don't think we left our house at all! haha!!  It was so cold here, and with snow/ice on the roads, we thought it was better to just stay put!  I took advantage of the free time and played!  I created this card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge:


Very simple card, but I didn't want to take away from the fun pattern of the Paper Blooms Designer Paper!  Here's the sketch -- I stayed pretty true to it!

CARD: Happy Thoughts

So, the challenge over at the Less is More blog is "chocolate"!  Interesting, right?  Of course, with it being close to Valentine's Day, my first thought was chocolate candy.  BUT, as I played around a bit, my card took a different direction!  I went masculine with all things Early Espresso--ribbon, cardstock, ink!  Enjoy!
