A double dose

I've managed to get 2 cards done for challenges today - quite an achievement for me!  I should be getting some scrapbooking done but I'm just not in the mood and I really can't do anything if I try to force myself to do it - "does not respond well to direction" is probably a pretty fair comment from those who know me :)

        Anyway the first card is made with a very sweet digi from the wonderful Mo Manning.  I think this is one of my favourites - love her little dungarees!  I wanted to keep to just pinks and browns (do like this colour combo!) as I already had the backing paper picked out and I wanted to keep the embellishments fairly clean and simple.



I would like to enter this into the following challenges -
http://mosdigitalchallenge.blogspot.com/ - Anything goes (with optional sketch)
http://thepinkelephantchallenge.blogspot.com/ - use pink
http://digitaltuesdaychallenge.blogspot.com/ - use pink or red


The second card is one made with one of my own digis, available at  Can You Digi It - he's called What a Wiz! and I did some paper piecing with his robe and hat and coloured the rest of him with Copics.  All the background elements were done with my Silhouette SD - I've had it a couple of years now and am trying to resist upgrading to the fantastic new Silhouette Cameo!  I don't NEED it but I so WANT it!!!



This one is entered for the following  -
http://canyoudigiit.com/blog/ - inspiration from a fairy wonderland
http://thecraftypad.blogspot.com/ - fresh spring colours


As always, thanks for popping by to take a look - hope your day is sunny and bright :)

Fun cards. On the first one, the pail seems to jump off the page - what wonderful coloring. Love all the die cuts and fun elements on your wizzard card. Impressive work!

Both of these are fabulous Dawn...love the colours on both. I say go for it and buy the new Cameo lol (I like spending everyone else's money!) I've heard lots of good things about it from new owners. If I didn't have my Maxx I'd be tempted :)
