Good Morning!! It is Friday!! Boy the time has just flown by again this week. Atleast it is going to be a tad bit cooler today. It has been in the 90's the last few days and is so out of character for this time of year here. Too hot too soon...I am not complaining but my flowers and plants have been maturing and dying off so much more quickly with this weather...

Anywho....Today I have two cards to share with you....a sneak peak from Whimsy and a card I created for this week's challenge at Wags n Whiskers.Today is another digi sneak peak for Whimsy. On Monday April 12...we will be having a blog hop and the new digi line will be released!!!
Here is a card I created using a Whimsy digi created by Katie Sowa called "Aw so tweet" and some "Ah so tweet sentiments" to match. I used Sketch Saturday for my layout. The image is colored with prisma and gamsol. I added fun fur to resemble feathers. The dp is from Anna Griffin-Isabelle.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My second card is one I created for this weeks Wags n Whiskers challenge hosted by my talented and sweet dt sister: Sharon. And she asked us to add some Scallops to our cards!!
You can use dies, border punches, die cuts, etc... But remember, you must use a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp to be entered into the drawing for the prize.
And what's the prize?! How about one Wags 'n Whiskers Stamp OF YOUR CHOICE!! You can choose from any of the releases as well! So why not come join the fun!

Here is my take on the challenge:
I used Happy Day illustrated by Cris De Lara for Wags n Whiskers. I paper pieced her with Basic Grey Kioshi. The layout uses Going Grey with Snap Creations sketch for this week.

I have received a lot of new goodies from Stamp and Create and just had to use them!!! The delicious lace, the BG Kioshi paper, Shimmerz Spritz (Carribbean Sunset) the large pink prima rose, and little mint green roses are available in Lacey's Stamp and Create store.

The image, Happy Day from Wags n Whiskers is part of this week's Product Spotlight at Stamp and Create and is one of 58 images on sale for 50% off (Easter sale) You have this week and next to place your order!!! While it is called an Easter Sale...not all the images are Easter and can be used for many occasions!!

Gorgeous! The large flower on the second card looks like it's dipped in sugar...I have not had breakfast yet! LOL I love the colors you used on both cards.

It's been hot here in East TN this past week but this morning I woke up to a freezing house and had to turn the heat back on. Can't have my little ones cold!
