Two for Wednesday!

This first card is for the sketch challenge at SCS today. I cut the diagonals from the back, and discovered that I had gone in the wrong direction! I like it anyway, and continued to add things to it until I was pretty much satisfied. This is what happens when you can't sleep, and are in your craft room at 3 AM.

This card is for my mother for New Year's. I made this
when I was crafting yesterday with my DIL Debbie. I had made all the cards I intended to send out for the beginning of 2010 when Mom was here, and she had seen them all. I certainly couldn't send her one of those!!!
She loves this Stipple Rose (SU!) image, and I thought the colors were so gorgeous together that I knew she would really like it. She saves all my cards, and frequently uses them as patterns to make some herself. How's that for flattery???
I'll pop this in the mail in the morning so she will get it on Thursday. I hope you like it too.

by the way....Storrs would be do-able for me as long as it is in daylight (my weak peepers limit my nighttime driving).....
