2 cards today

I got up this morning and decided since I had made several layouts the last couple of days I wanted to concentrate on cards today.   So I started looking for sketches.   I found two I really wanted to use.

This is the card I made using a PL card with the sketch #341 at  "THE PAPER PLAYERS"     
I'm making and saving cards to send to my grandkids for no reason at all but to say hello and that they are on my mind.    So this PL card was perfect, I just inked it in red, found the patterned paper with red in it to use behind the card and a strip of red cardstock behind it.  To finish the card I just inked the edges in red.   Here is the sketch & click on the name above to go to the blog site.

Then here is my second card for the day.

This card I made using the new sketch #41 just starting today at  "PAPER PLAY SKETCHES"
I thought it was perfect for an all occasion card that didn't need a sentiment.   I just found some patterned paper I liked and double matted it, then I had this hummingbird stamped image in my stash and I just used colored pencils to go with the colors in the patterned paper and double matted it also.
Used a double strip of yellow washi tape to pull more of the yellow and then inked the edges of the card in green.   Below is the sketch and click on the blog name above to go to the challenge.
