CAS(E) this Sketch #132

I just love this week's sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and when I saw it I thought of several cards I could make. For the challenge I decided to make a teacher thank you card, although I'll definitely be using the sketch for other cards.

Here is the sketch

and here is my card

For my card I used my trusty old Sizzix apple die, it tends to come out at this time of year for teacher thank you cards. I also used my Papertrey Ink linen embossing plate, my Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX and my SSS stitched squares dies. The sentiment is from the Clearly Besotted Sentimental Type set.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Karen x

Freshly Made Sketches #194

Thought it about time I took part in another challenge and when I saw this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches I thought it would be a good design for the 50th birthday card a friend has asked me to make.

Here is the sketch

and here is my card

Items used :
Papertrey Ink linen impression plate
SSS stitched squares dies
Waffle Flower tiny twine bow die
Personal Impressions Everyday Words Happy Birthday
I believe the number dies are Memory Box and the papers are Papermania.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Hopefully it won't be too long before I post again. Karen x
