Laura's Sketch & a Bonus Too....


Good Morning and Happy New Year!
I was totally spaced out and forgot yesterday was New Year's Eve. I spent most of the day creating cards and it just didn't register LOL! I hope you all had a great time if you partied last night and if you stayed home....hope it was relaxing and fun like mine!!

My 2 cards for today are doing triple duty. 2 sketches and a sort of ways to use it challenge....the sketches are from 2 Sketches 4 You. While I had fun making them, they were by no means easy to me.....especially the 2nd one! My first card also qualifies for the challenge on Our Creative Corner to use something clear on your artwork---my button is my clear piece. Thank you ladies for the fantastic challenges and looking forward to more!

Have a great rest of the day and thanks so much for stopping by!
TTFN,

  1. The first one is so sweet. I like the big scallops in the second one and the bits of bling on each scallop.
