It's Grad Season....


Today's first card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge........I've used one of the pieces from the Vintage Grad set from Sugar Creek Hollow (there is also a greeting from that set on the inside of the card) The set is shown below - and you should be able to click on it to go directly to the Shoppe.

The black and white colour motif fits into the challenge over at Our Creative Corner - black and white and lots of texture....I've used grosgrain ribbon, metal slides and black and silver rhinestones.










This second card is one of the challenges from Splitcoasts VSN this past weekend. The theme was Dreaming of May - moving from winter to spring. Each creation was suppose to have a change of colour, image and texture from left to right. I had fun making this.

We had some snow this weekend - Big fat huge stuff at times. Didn't last long though.

I hope you're spring season is holding fast and your able to enjoy any celebrations that it holds. Thanks for stopping by!
