A Few Fun Challenges

Hey there! Well today was the first day of school down here in sunny Florida and I had a nice day enjoying the peace and stillness of the house minus our two school girls. I also had a few minutes to look around [on the internet] and thought these two challenges sounded like fun...here's what I came up with for the current challenge over at the 2 Sketches 4 You blog:

Laura's Sketch 33 (my interpretation)
And the close up:
The supplies include: Card- DCWV; Patterned paper- (orange) Papertrey Ink, (black&white) Making Memories; Punch- Martha Stewart; Stickers- (cat) MAMBI, (tag) Making Memories; Twine- Martha Stewart.
Next, is my submission for the current challenge at the CPS blog, challenge 130. Be sure to check that one out....the prize is from Jillibean Soup!!

And here's the close up:
We found these fun dimensional stickers from "atd" at Hobby Lobby....I also paired it with an American Crafts journal sticker, Martha Stewart's new loopy punch and ribbon from my stash. The card base (white) is also from DCWV. I love their textured card stacks. The polka dot paper was a leftover sitting on my desk from MAMBI. And... I also used my ribbon punch tool from Making Memories on both cards, love that thing!

Oh my goodness, both your cards are super cute....but I just LOVE that Halloween card! Your choice of PP is awesome, and I love the cat with the sentiment. Great job!

Hmmm, I don't know which is my favorite. I love fall, but have a super soft spot for cupcakes! Great work on both of them!!
