Creating for Fun

Good Morning and a Happy Chilly Thursday to everyone!!

 I am telling ya Mother Nature must definitely be going through the change of life or something - two days ago we were in the 60's and today it is a nice chilly 30's!!!! 

On to my two cards I have to share today!! Both of these cards were made for fun!! Yep just because I wanted to play!! 
Both images are from a lovely shop From the Heart Stamps, known also as Designed2Delight
Faith the owner, offers a new weekly sketch challenge on her Delightful Inspiration {from the heart} blog and a monthly progressive challenge where if you play along in their challenge the following month you will be sent the new image to play along again with. 

My first card features a brand new image "Humble Anneke", which I fell in love with instantly and create this card using this week's sketch 

After coloring her up with my favorite Copic markers, I paired her with these beautiful papers from Authentique Lovely collection, added some machine stitching, glitter candy dots, mix match flowers topped with a glitter button and twine. Sentiment comes with this sweet little gal.

My next card is for the January Free Stamp of the Month Progressive Challenge and this month the sweet  image to play with is a whimsical Cupcake image called Cupcake Line Up.

Now don't my cupcakes just looks YUMMY!! Such a fun image to paper piece and color up using my Copic and then decorating with a bit of bling with Stickles Orange Peel. These beautiful papers I received in a card kit and have been sitting here waiting for the perfect image to be paired with!! Think they were meant for this fun image. The sweet sentiment is also included in the CupCake Line Up and just love it!!
