For Laura's sketch, I was planning to make a birthday card for someone special in my family. Unfortunately, I'm not quite sure how I will position the sentiment into the design of my card, I'm going to play around with it when I'm a bit more bright eyed. I was inspired by the vintage wallpaper feel of this Basicgrey paper. Even though this line was put out as their Christmas paper, I think the muted greens and reds work well for other occasions too.
For Rae's bonus sketch, I made a card for my cousin who is expecting her first baby sometime in February. It's a very exciting time for her and I can't wait to meet her little fellow. My little guy is all geared up to be a big cousin. He's already planning on teaching him how to run around, jump on stuff, yell really loud, jump off stuff, you know all that good boy stuff. I just hope the two little ones will grow up to be great friends, just as my cousin and myself have. All the paper used for this card is from Cosmo Cricket and the stamp is from a set from Papertrey Ink.
Well, this is really conquering two goals with one felt swoop. I've completed another card challenge and I now have two more cards (almost) ready to go for my loved ones. Great, now I can sleep soundly.
