 Not sure that I got the spelling right but I am sure everyone knows what I mean I have not one but two cards to share and enter into some challenges

My first card features an image from Sweet Escape coloured with both Spectrum Noir and Graphic markers, the papers are from one of my pads that I received from Brenda I used my circle dies for the image and mount also for the sentiment I also added some flower peals, I have followed the sketch at CSG (see below)

This is my card the image I have had coloured for some time I have loads of images that I have coloured ready to make cards with so far this is the only one I have created something with.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

My second card is a festive one this time I have used an image from one of Hunky Dory Little Books it has been mounted on black card for some time but today I decided to make this card once again using papers that Brenda sent me I am so chuffed that I have many more beautiful papers to play with. I added sparkle to parts of the image that I hope you can see and finally added a tag that I have had for some years from Anne Marie Designs

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Great job on your Twofer! The coloring and pink tones on the first card are so pretty with that great sketch. I just love that cute little tag added to your 2nd card with that fn squirrel on the tree stump. Great papers and a wonderful design as well.

Two gorgeous card here Lolo! Love the pretty coloring on the top card with the floral papers and pink colors! That image on the second card is darling and I love the layout of your design too!

Two very different but excellent cards Lolo. xxx

I am glad you are happy to have some new papers. I always admire how you use them. I find it impossible, so never buy them anymore.. the first card is perfectly feminine and the second perfectly Christmasy xx

Chrissy said...

Number one, what a great sketch, I reckon I could follow that, maybe, and I love your lovely image coloured beautifully and such pretty papers..number two, look at that little squirrel, he is adorable, gorgeous Christmas card.

LOLO= Both cards are terrific but I'm really partial to the rural wintery Christmas card with the squirrel!!! Thanks for sharing it at FarmQuest Country Christmas Challenges!!! Even the snow-topped English country manor house in the background is a great element for your country Christmas card! Awesome! --Becca

Amazing how different they look but using the same layout - 2 gorgeous cards x

Chris said...

Both cards are beautiful Lorraine, the first is so beautiful with the pretty papers, delicate colours and that gorgeous focal image- coloured perfectly. You made great use of your chosen sketch.
The Christmas card is delightful, a great layout and lovely traditional papers and colours to frame the beautiful red squirrel.

Two fabulous cards, I love the image and your beautiful colouring on the first one and the second is a very sweet festive card - which reminds me I really must set about making some Christmas cards, I am so far behind!

A fabulous "twofer" Lolo, such a beautiful image on the first and the squirrel is magnificent on the Christmas card. Hope you are getting some better days xx

Love the sketch of the first card, I rarely use them, but I have saved this one time ago because it's beautiful. You have done a so pretty card with it!!Love the papers and your fab colouring!
The second one is my fav, that Hunkydory squirrel is SO cute and the papers you have had from Brenda are so sweet and festive! The tag finishes the card so well!
