Phindy's Challenge Cards

The challenge at Phindy's Place Challenge Blog last Friday (challenge #32) was metal.  I made two different cards for the challenge.  I had all the dsp still out, so I decided to keep going with the same colors.  And no, I'm still not done with Christmas cards yet, or shopping.  I don't get too ahead of the game, I thrive on that last minute rush!

This first card uses Bear Hug.  This little girl just has the sweetest little face, hugging that teddy, so cute. The metal here is pretty obvious, the fancy brad in the center of the bow.

On to my second card, this image is Gingerbread Delight.  I've glossed up the cookie so it super shiny in real life.  Now are you thinking, where is the metal?  The red dots are metal dots, they are pretty cool looking.  They were gifted to me in a secret sister swap, and I broke open the package just for this card.  This second card is also my take on the Friday Sketchers challenge #130.

Thanks for dropping by today.  Hope you are having a wonderful week.  We've had some bad storms, so I'm glad to stay inside!

What sweet images- and your coloring is so pretty. I love the layout and esp the stitching. I am going to be last minute this year too- when the kids get older, it is easy- Electronics!
