Two Cards - Two Challenges

I had a lot of fun making these cards :)

The first one is for Caardvarks' Circle of Friendship challe
nge. The challenge is to make a round card. It's my first round card ever! I'd seen a really cool tip on Jennifer McGuire's blog - make a tiny flap on one of the circles and glue the decorated circle on top (the front of the card). That way, you can accomplish the 'full circle' card front, clever, isnit?


The next card I made is for Instyle Stamps' Wednesday Challenge - Felt. No points for guessing, I had to use felt in the project. And I had to use at least one ISS stamp, perfect! I was waiting to use some of the digi stamps I'd bought from them and it was perfect timing :) Featuring in my card here is Sasha. I think she's gorgeous! I used pinking shears and cut out a strip of red felt for the sentiment and attached a little pink felt flower on her hair band with a brad.


So, that's it from me for now. Off to make some party invites and thank you notes for my lil niece's birthday party :)

Until next time...cheers!
