~ sweet sketch # 86 and 87 ~

ah...back again with a couple of newly created cards using sweet sketch wednesday's sketches. i made last week's card using the sketch, but didn't get a chance to post it, so here it is. sorry for the 'not so good' pics. it's pouring buckets here today and it's SO drabby outside. ah ~ but, seriously i'm not complaining ~ there's none of the white fluffy stuff on the ground. anyhoo, i'm off for a lil trip down island today for an appointment and to have a quick stop over at the kiddos. then dh and i are heading out for some chinese food with some friends tonight. hope you all have a great day ~ and a rawkin scrappin happy week.

Melody your cards are simply stunning! I love that darling Tilda perched in the circle doily with those wonderful pearl accents. There's so much rich detail in this card that I can't keep my eyes away from it. An exceptional take on the sketch this week. Thanks for joining us again at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

Hiya Melody

Wow those cards are just breathtaking...the details are just amazing.
I'm taking a break from blogging for a while Melody but I will still pop over and visit and you know you can e-mail me any time.

Hi Melody!
As usual you have blown me away with your talent!
The card is just beautiful!
Thanks so much for sharing!
PS....Do you use special accordion style envelopes to put the cards in when you give them, do you make your own, use a small slim box or do you just attach the card on top of a gift? Mind you, if you did attach the card on top of a gift you could get away with using butcher paper to use as gift wrap because your cards are so beautiful that nobody will even notice the gift wrap anyways.
