Two Cards, Two Challenges
   I have been back in Maryland almost a month now, and I finally feel settled in with my card making and crafting. I've got a good start on the family Thanksgiving cards (a later post) and our Christmas card is rolling around in my brain, almost ready for a dry run.  

   Today I took some time to just play with a couple of challenges.  I will present them in order of expiration of challenge posting time.  

   First up is Mojo Monday, I used some Jellybean papers, an impressions obsession stamp, a MS shape punch, distress ink in fired brick, distress marker in same, versa fine black onyx ink and some snug hug seam binding died with distress ink. I loved the sketch so I had to play.

   Next up is Freshly Made Sketches. This was an interesting sketch.  I have trouble with clean and simple, I keep trying though.  I think white space scares  
   I used a Lawn Fawn stamp set, Copic Markers, We are Memory Makers ribbon punch tool, versa fine ink, american crafts ribbon. 


 Thanks for stopping by!

Hi, Cat! I love both of your cards and you could have fooled me about your fear of white space! That card is SO clean and simple, yet beautiful as well. Great job!
