Another two cards from me today - both are GD spots

When I accepted two Guest Designer spots I had not realised that both would be for the same day, it could only happen to me lol. I made the Stamp with Fun card a few weeks ago, the blues/aqua's on both cards wasn't planned - again it could only happen to me!!
daisy-may-challenge-1
My first card is for the Daisy May Designs Challenge and this week the theme is Gems. We all know how much I love my pearls so this was perfect for me lol. I chose this image to work with because it reminds me of summer holidays at the beach when my children were little, that little cutie looks like she is walking along the shore looking out to sea (oh dear, there's the dreamer coming out again lol). I've decided I love this colour combo (wasn't too sure till the card was done) so you will be seeing lots of this lol.

Once I had finished the card I realised that it would qualify for this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge which is Getting Edgy - lots of distressed and stitched edges on this card. I (not intentionally) used all digi downloads on this card - the image and papers are downloads.

I carried the layout on the front through to the inside, but flipped it for something a bit different.

My second card is for this weeks Stamp with Fun challenge and I got to do a sketch (my very first one so be gentle with me - how brave was I!!). It's a really simple one and took longer to make the pic in Photoshop than it did to make the card - I am the most computer challenged person I know!!
Bev's sketch 1 stamp with fun
I received this adorable Hanglar & Stanglar stamp for my birthday from a very dear friend (thanks sweetie xxx) and have only got round to inking it up now (I'm totally hopeless!!). The papers have been lying in the cupboard for well over a year now (even more hopeless) and I love these blues, they are so pretty.

I kept the same layout for the inside of the card (I'm so predictable aren't I!!)
