A square and a bear!

Hello there! I have two cards for you today. The first is for the Sweet Stop Challenge this week. I just loved this sketch, however it took me forever to come up with how I wanted to do it...lol. My mom asked me the other day if I could make a retirement card for a friend of hers. So I decided to use the Sweet Stop Sketch for that.
I used some new paper for the background. I recently purchased a "mystery box", and this paper was one of the many things in it. The paper is from My Mind's Eye. I then used a scallop square punch, and punched out some purple CS. There is the slightest amount of purple in the background paper, so I wanted to pull that out. I then added some flowers, buttons, and sticky butterflies that I covered in glitter. The inside sentiment and outside are both from the same SU Congratulations set. The inside has the retirement wishes by the way...lol.

My second card I made for this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge. The challenge this week is "Friends"...make a card showing friendship. WOW...do I need this this week. It has been a very stressful few weeks in our house, and I really could use a friend to chat with. I was so thankful to have that this morning too! My dear friend Kelly was there for me again...and put me straight...lol. I needed that though. Anyway...here is the card I came up with.I used the bears from one of the new TAC sets. (Bountiful Bears) I colored it with watercolor crayons, and cut it out. I layered it onto some dark green CS. The PP is from TAC also. The sentiment is from the TAC set Beary Much.

Well that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by!
