A Couple of Cards

Today, I decided to do another card challenge- this time I did the sketch (above) from , and the challenge was to use a digistamp. The digistamp I chose to use was one from Lindsey's blog ( ). She's going to start selling them, and this was a freebie that she offered on her blog today. Isn't the chickie the cutest thing ever?

The other card was just a quickie that I did to unwind after spending ALL night trying to find/create a shark svg that my son would be happy with for a bookmark, of all things. GAHH!!! First of all, my sweet little boy is just a tad bit too picky! I wanted to throttle him after about 2 hours! So, anyway, back to the card.... I found the free svg file on a blog from a girl in my surecutsalotusers Yahoo group, . All I did for this card was to cut it, break out my gold leafing pen (finally) for the crass and lettering, glue it onto a pale blue cardstock background, add a bit of light blue chalk ink around the edges, and fold. It was therapeutic, it was so easy! I am determined to use these svgs and scuts I have been collecting! There are so many beautiful options to choose from! Just not enough cuttable sharks, LOL!

Thanks for listening (figuratively speaking) to my little rant and looking at my cards-I'll be away from the computer for a few days, but should be back to posting again by early next week!
