Drinks on Cliff and Many Thanks!

Not really happy of the cards that I created last night...hope I'm not loosing my MOJO.

Anyway, first card is a sketch from Card Positioning System (CPS) this week and it's being sponsored by Starving Artistamps. And, why not play with their own stamps. This is Cliff enjoying a margarita, he knows that summer is over but he sure is not ready for that so... "Drinks on him!".

Stamps: Cliff from Doodle Factory by Starving Artistamps

Paper: Chocolate Chip card stock by Stampin Up and Patterned Paper from Marcella by K

Ink: Jet Black staz-on ink and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Crystal Effects, Googly Eyes and Stampin' Dimensional

And this is my second card for Holiday Release Sketch Challenge Blitz for Verve Visual. I thought that my first card for CPS was too plain and my card for Verve is too busy. I really like both cards when I was done with it but when I was getting ready to post it, I thought it was not blog worthy...LOL! But, I've been really good posting and creating everyday, I didn't want to break it. I'll probably redo this again and maybe I should have lined up my flowers or I should have used smaller flowers...oh well, too late.

Stamps: Fancy Florals by Verve Visual

Paper: Pink Pirouette, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip card stock and Designer Series Paper Bella Rose from Stampin' Up

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette classic ink

Accessories: Stampin' Dimensional, Double Sided stain ribbon, Circle Punches

Your cards are beautiful! Sometimes I think we're too over critical of our work.

I think maybe you were a bit tired when you typed double sided stain ribbon.

Beautiful cards Catherine!

Sandra Smart said...

oh Catherine, I'm so glad you posted the second card because I love it! I love the colors you chose to use.
Your first card makes me laugh. It looks like he's had a couple too many drinks already and is about to fall out of his chair! LOL!
I hope you aren't losing your mojo too. I hate when that happens!
