Going for some simple cards today. 
First, a tall & skinny Mojo Monday card suitable for a wedding:
Normally, I would be complaining about the tall & skinny sketch at Mojo Monday.  But I really like the way this turned out!  (3.5 x 5.5)

and, second,  a sympathy card for today's 
Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:

Yeah, I kind of just used some things floating around on my craft table.  Didn't have enough mojo to look for pattern papers, etc.  There is way too much stuff on the table right now, anyway.  Plus - it needs a good cleaning, so I don't have to sponge the next card I make because it got dirty during construction.
All the stamps used are CTMH.  I love the pussywillow branches stamp, one of the first signs of spring.

  1. Wow, these are both gorgeous, Debi! The first one has so much texture! The second is a perfect CAS sympathy card, great to have on hand when needed. I find it too hard to make them 'on the spot.'

  2. Beautiful card Debi.
