Two cards

Monday again... I think Monday is becoming my favourite day of the week.... Maja at school, Susie at nursery, hubby at work, and me at home - alone! So I let housework be housework and dig out my papers and stamps instead! Today I finished this card:
Again, I have borrowed a stamp - one of the Gorjuss girls- from Renate. I have coloured her with Promarkers (Cocoa, Cinnamon, Dusky pink, Blush, Vanilla, Blossom, Ivory, Duck egg, Cool aqua, Red, Rose pink and Cool grey 2). Image panel is mounted on 3d foam. I have used Tilda papers and a MS punch. The edges is distressed by scraping a pair of scissors along the edge and I also added a bit of ink around the edges.

I had fun, the other day, crocheting some small cotton flowers. I have used one of them on this card. I put the bead from a decorative foam flower through the middle hole in the crocheted flower before gluing it to the card....
I'm entering this card into these challenges:
Sketch Saturday - Challenge #119 - a sketch
Stamptacular Sunday challenge - challenge 75 - Distress it!
Secret Crafter Saturday challenge - challenge 99- Clean and Simple
I also have a second card to share with you today... woohooo! That's not like me, is it? Two cards in one post... hehe... I made this card last week while visiting my friend Randi. I know, I know... two cardmaking visits in one week! Lucky me! It's so much fun meeting up with friends to talk and make cards and share stamps and ideas.
I have borrowed the Henry mouse stamp from my friend. Isn't he the cutest? He was coloured in (with Promarkers) while I was at my friends house, and I was too busy chatting away that I forgot to make a note of what colours I used... Papers from Nille, and again I have used some of my chrocheted flowers. I tried colouring one in with a Promarker, but I'm not sure about the effect.... Sentiment is made with a couple of different alphabet stamp sets and says "Hooray for you". Edges are distressed with scissors and I have also drawn a couple of lines round the papers with a pen.
Thanks for looking & have a great week!

Så nydelige kort - begge to! Det første motivet er jo bare så søtt. Har aldri sett det motivet før og du bruker farger som er kjempefine på kortet. Musen Henry med brune og blå farger som basis - bedre kan det jo ikke bli! Kjempefint pyntet også.

jeg vil være med på scrappetreff sammen med deg og Renate - er det frekt å invitere seg selv en gang???

Skjønner godt hobby er mer fornuftig enn husarbeid - hobby blir man i det minste i godt humør av!!!!

Klem fra heidi

Så utrolig skjønt det kortet ditt med gorjusjenta ble! Aldeles nydleig og mye finere enn mitt!

Håper vi får til å scrappes her en annen dag og det hadde vært knall om Heidi blir med altså.
