Friday Sketchers # 68.....two cards for Friends!!!

Well, I have been busy making cards this weekend but I'm starting to feel a bit guilty as I have done nothing else and my house is a total disaster. There are still remnants of all the camping trips we've been on this summer, scattered around the house. I will spend tomorrow giving the house a good cleaning and try to get all the camping gear away. Hubby has already started the laundry so I will finish it up! Then we should be all set for back to school on Tuesday!
Well, I made two cards today with the great sketch they have this week over at the Friday Sketchers Challenge blog! This first card I made for my good friend and co-worker, Lynda! I will pop it in the mail on Tuesday for her. She just found out that she has cancer and we are all very shocked! She had surgery on Tuesday and will need another surgery and chemo! I just wanted to send her a little note that I am thinking of her and here for her! Lynda is a real fan of my cards and buys a lot of them to support the organization we work for, so I know she will like this one!
I made the cardbase 6x6 from White Swiss Dots Bazzill cardstock and used BG Lemonade...sorry if you are getting sick of BG Lemonade but I can't get enough of it! So I stamped my new Swiss Pixies stamps, Heidi among the flowers, on ATS Copic paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her in with my Copic markers. I used another round label from The Shabby Shoppe, added American Crafts ribbon, Primas and some bling here and there. I shimmerized Heidi and the Primas too.

Here is the inside sentiment!

For my second card I turned the sketch on it's side...again, I used White Swiss Dot Bazzill Cardstock and BG Lemonade but I made it a bit smaller. I only have a few 6x6 envelopes left and I find it hard get them. This card fits into a 5.5X5.5 envelope that I get at Micheals. I cut Lisel out with my Nesties and used the out of the box Technique.

I piled on the small Prima flowers in Leisel's wheelbarrow and added lots of Stardust Stickles here and there. The sentiment is from an Amy R Thank You sentiment set from ATS.

I printed the inside sentiment on my computer. This card is for my Auntie Diane...she popped by my work the other day to say "Hi" and I just wanted to let her know that it was nice to see her!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!
