2 cards today... and No DT

Hello everyone

No DT for SS today - I've been so busy making cards to give out I have not had chance to participate int the Sentimental Sundays Challenge, although my first card does have a button on it - I could have just used that one I suppose!

I've also started the Christmas card list - looks like i'm going to be a busy bee for the next few weeks.  Sorry hubby - I have to craft...

I have two cards to post today, one for my little boys friend Max, and another for my best friends daughter who is sixteen soon.

This was made with some docraft backing papers and brown card.  with a lili of the Valley image and sentiment stamp, coloured with promarkers

I'd like to enter this into:
Lili of the valley - anything goes
Papertake - anything goes
Crafting at the weekend - anything goes
Sketch Saturday - Sketch 
Alphabet challenge - Round or rectangle (both)
Addicted to stamps and more - Anything goes

My next project is to celebrate both All dressed up first birthday and blog hop - but made for my friends daughter who will be 16 soon.

Made with a diggity dog docraft pad, elements were cut out using my silhouette.  The flowers were made using Tim Holtz tattered flowers die, and some made with the technique learned at my class last week - I have a feeling you'll be seeing a lot of these!  The image was coloured with promarkers

All dressed up - Birthday blog hop
Kitty Bee designs - die cut (flowers and electronic cutting for back ground elements)
7 kids college fund - anything goes
Creative moments - anything goes

Thanks so much for stopping by - hope you like my two very different creations. I'm off to blog hop (while listening to this years first X factor elimination - come on the over 25's!!)

See you soon - oh and welcome to the new followers,  Thanks for your lovely comments.  They always brighten my day and make me smile!
