I have two cards to share for two challenges: 

This clean and simple anniversary card featuring MFT's  Tweet Memories is going to the gallery at The Card Concept. I chose the "B" challenge photo inspiration. The sentiment is a conglomeration of several sets.



Next up is a fun fold card for Four Seasons:  

 A combination of patterned papers and an SU stamp called Marigold Moments. I thought they could easily be carnations too...and I loved that spray of lilacs in the upper left corner of the inspiration photo.



I am having a hard time getting my muse going again after our mini get away. I still have to unpack one bag and we have been home a week.  I got half the laundry done last weekend, and am working on the other half now.  Since the weather has been getting nice, I am now obsessed with getting my winter closet swapped out for summer...and then there are the ever present delays in sleeping.  When I am awake and energized to work, hubs is slumbering and I can't bang around making noises. Hope to do some catching up today as I was awake 2 hours earlier than usual.  

Thanks for stopping by.

Lovely cards for the challenges. Have a lovely Friday.

Your first card is just classic Cat, so lovely and perfectly CAS. Your second card is also lovely, great fancy fold and use of patterned papers. Nice to see a different style. They are both winners in my book xx

I love the cute little banner the birds are holding and your floral fun fold is lovely! It's always good to be home but takes time to get back into the swing of things!

Those little birds have stolen my heart, Cat! It's just sweet! You know I'm a bird-loving crafter. Your fancy fold card with the patterned paper and flowers is a true love of mine, too. That flower absolutely looks like a carnation. Even the leaves. I'm having a hard time picturing it as a marigold. We haven't been anywhere for a while -- first one reason and then another -- but I can understand about the sleep issues. I've been better lately and I don't know why. Take your time and I know you'll come back around.

Awww - sweet pair of birdies on card one, Cat, and I love the design of card two with the patterned papers & delicate blossom!

Your darling anniversary card is as TWEET as it can be, Cat - someone very lucky is going to love receiving it!
This fun-fold is so pretty - gorgeous papers, and the perfect shade of lilac.
