Greetings from Seattle

I was supposed to be hard at it making things for the shop, but decided instead to give myself some time to play around.  I created a couple of cards for challenges.  Love challenges - they get my creative juices going.

This one is for the Stampotique Die Cut challenge.  The umbrella is a die.  I used red and white polka dot washi tape since I didn't have the paper I wanted.  This really does yell "Seattle!", doesn't it?  I think this will go to my mom.  She gave me an earful the other day because I haven't sent her a card in a while.

This next card is for the Paper Craft January Challenge - Milestone Birthdays.  I have a few wonderful people in my life who will be celebrating the big 5-0 this year.

That's it for today.  Have a wonderful weekend!
