Two weeks worth of sketches

Now that my husband is home for the weekend, I asked him where the camera was and of course it was right next to the computers the whole time! So - I am sharing what I made for last week's sketch challenge as well as this week's :) I decided to make Valentine's cards for each since that is our next holiday. As it turns out, I really don't have many Valentine sets, but I don't see myself buying anymore anytime soon - too many other things that I want. :)

Here is the card that I made for this week's challenge.

I LOVE Boatloads of Love! And I love the jumbo eyelets that Stampin' Up! sells - I have looked for similar elsewhere and can't find any as good. I also love how the jumbo eyelets fit so well with this stamp because of the round life-preservers on the side of the boat. I am sad that the Darling Doodles DS was retired after the last catalog - I thought it would be a great carry-over to the Spring, but apparently not. I'm going to have to get myself some of that Berry Bliss paper to make up for it.

Like I said, I also made a card for last week's challenge too, but never got it posted. Here is it.

I'm not sure how I feel about the end result of it. I like purple, but I always have a hard time using it. I'm not sure why. And there was hardly any stamping that was done on this card since I used the prima flowers as the main part of the card and designer paper as well.

Hope everyone has a great weekend - it is a long weekend for me, but not for Justin who will be heading out again Monday morning for his last week in Houma (hopefully for a few months at least).
