two more under my belt!

i am well on my way to having these "green" cards finished before saturday morning. monday night was a complete write-off - i went to the gym for my awesome yoga class, and did a half-hour run on the treadmill afterwards, and i think i'm STILL feeling rather like jello! my legs got a great workout though, and i am doing a decent job sticking to a routine, or at least getting to the gym three times a week.

anywho, enough of this babble! that's not why you're here, right? CARDS!

okay, so two more "green" cards done. like i said, you may recognize some of the same elements popping up throughout the week, so i hope you're not too bored. :)

here's the first card:

you can't see the glimmer mists i sprayed over the base and the coffee cup, but it looks fab, i promise!

it follows this sketch:

over at Card Patterns. it uses recycled paper, a cardboard sleeve for coffee and hemp. plain and simple, right? the stickers, well they're RECYCLABLE. :)

and the next card covers a few different challenges...

first there's this sketch:

from Card Positioning Systems.

then for the Basic Grey inspiration challenge:

and for the Papertake Weekly Challenge, to "fake it".

and also for the Inky Impressions challenge, to use stitching (real or faux) on a project. i certainly have never covered this many challenges with one card, and such a SIMPLE card at that! anyway, it's very plain, but here it is:

the sketch is obvious. the inspiration is the colours, mostly, and the stitching, as the photo has that country-esque feel where there are lots of handmade window treatments and such. and the faking it is also the faux stitching.

that's about it for now - i'm working on putting some stuff together for a "girlfriends" swap right now, and i have lots of cutting to do! but work beckons. i shall be back later! :) happy hump day, chickens!
