Two more cards!

I have to admit... I am completely surprising myself with all the cards I have made lately!! It was one of my goals this year so I think I am off to a great start!

We have a new Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs. This week we are asking you to pick a color and stick to it! Yep... it's all about monochromatic this week!! I don't know about all of you, but I have NEVER made a single thing that was monochromatic so this was really a challenge for me! Our sponsor this week is Craft Your Passion and the sweet Sammibug was a darling and sent us some fabulous digis to work with! Here is the card I made with the Chasing the Butterfly digi....

I wasn't so sure about this when I started but I love the way it turned out! I even impressed myself (not hard to do) when I paper pieced together the little girls outfit!! I know I was supposed to stick to one color but I couldn't resist letting her chase a pink butterfly!!

I used the card sketch from Sketches in Thyme for this card! I am part of the layout team but don't usually mess with the cards.... I leave that for the pros!  :) I do like how this card turned out!

And now for my second card this week....


This one is for our Sketch Along Tuesday Sketch at Frosted Designs. (Sorry it has taken me all week to get it posted!) The sketch was created by our very own Libeeti and is meant to be for a LO but I think it worked just fine for the card!! I just flipped the sketch and straightened it out a bit!  :)

We would love to have you play along with our monochromatic challenge and our sketch challenge. If you do a monochromatic LO with this sketch you can enter it into both categories for a chance to win each of the prizes!

Ohhh... I don't want to forget.... I have a MAJOR giveaway coming your way on Monday!!! I am so excited I can hardly stand it!! Be sure to check back Monday morning for the LO I made with my precious daughter and news on how you can win this amazing prize!!! Do I have you wanting to race back?!! I hope so!! Have a great weekend and be sure to stop over at Frosted Designs to see what our design team did with this week's challenge!!

I usually "hate" Mondays, Barb, but now I can hardly wait for it to get here!!! LOL... Your cards are just gorgeous, GF... Wow you even paper pieced on the mono one... Wow, how cool is that!! It's just adorable... And the other one is "drop dead" gorgeous!! So elegant and the butterfly and flowers are beautiful!!! I can't believe you just started making cards... You already look like a pro!!!!
BTW I'm so glad you're enjoying Texas weather.... We almost got to 80 yesterday.. Will be in the 70's today, but next week will drop down to the 40's and 50's... but still better than what's happening in the northeast!!! Got a sick GS today, not scrapping, but trying to catch up on comments!!! Have a fantastic weekend!!!! Hugs!!!
