Cards with the Help for Katie set

Happy Monday everyone.  Hope if you have a day off for President's Day (US) or Family Day (Canada) you are enjoying it!

I've got two cards to show you today using the Help for Katie set that Faith has drawn to benefit Katie Renz and her family.  You can read about it on Help for Katie blog. For a $15 donation, you can get this exclusive set as well as many other images and papers from other digital artists.  The money all goes straight to Katie and her family. This set Faith has drawn is so springy and fun, I can think of so many uses for it. 

First I did a clean and simple card using the bee hive image.  The leaves are coated in crystal effects for a glossy look.  I used the CAS sketch #127 for this one.

The second card I made used the cute little bear and one of the sentiments. I used the Sketch Saturday week #143 for the layout of this one. The little yellow dew drops along the side look a little like honey drops.
