sending you a little happy

Hello, Friends! I received an email today about challenges The Craft's Meow was hosting. Since I'm always looking for a good challenge (and a chance for free STAMPS) I thought I'd give two of them a try. I didn't use The Craft's Meow stamps because I just have one set that I keep using over and over! I'm going to be heading off to buy some more after my post:)

My first card is for Lucy's Lovely Lines (edited to add:) and Simply Scrapping Crafts Challenge-Banners. Lucy's Lovely Lines had a great sketch (below) that was just my style, CAS. I used Unity's May10 KOM for the pennant and sentiment. I paper pieced the pennant with scraps from Hopscotch by BasicGrey. The cloud paper is a leftover from my stash:) I used My Favorite Things medium scallop and cloud dies to create a little scene on the card.My next card is a shabby birthday card for the Simply Scrapping Crafts Challenge. Their sketch is below. I used Papertrey Ink's Mixed Messages for the sentiments on my tickets. All the rest of the card is made from bits and pieces that I've collected and hoarded,er,saved over the years. This isn't my normal style, but I had fun playing with it!
