Two cards to share

Just a quick post today with a couple of cards as I'm meant to be sewing!  First up is a fun card.  This little Beer Monster is from Pollycraft.  Their challenge this week is teenager cards, not sure this should really qualify for that - although the legal drinking age in Englad is 18 I think it's pushing the boundaries of the idea of the challenge! ;o)

I used last weeks sketch from Clean and Simple as I loved it and hadn't gotten around to using it!



The second card is for my Mum who recently lost her uncle.  I used the sketch at Card Patterns and colour inspiration from Jay Gee's.  The image is from a Unity kit. I'm also entering into SPCC this week and Creative Craft Challenges who are asking for Lace.


Paper is from Fancy Pants, I really struggled with the layout of this card.  I'm really not sure about that diagonal line!

Thanks for stopping by.
