Crop till you drop, and Lace!

Good morning!

I happened to get a couple of challenge cards done, and thought I'd take a minute to post them!
The challenge at 365 Cards for yesterday was so much fun, but also very difficult!
We were to create an "Inside Scene" on our cards! Well, I just couldn't think of a thing! I was at my friend (Super Angel) Shirley's yesterday, and remembered a set that she had gotten at seminar a couple of years ago. She let me borrow it, and voila!

If you can't read the sign, it says: "Free Make & Take Projects 1:00-5:00 p.m., Crop Till You Drop - 5:00 p.m. - Midnight, Sponsored by: 365, Register here!!!"
I couldn't get the look of the walls the way I wanted, but that's okay! You can look at it yourself, and decide whether the border is baseboard, and the blue is the floor... or if the border is chair rail with two different wall colors!!! Lol...
Stamps: The Angel Company, Tombow Markers, Kooh-I-Noor Woodless Pencils, Computer Generated 'sign', Versamark Fine Black Ink, Stampin Up Wild Wasabi Ink.

This card is for 365 Cards challenge today, which was to use lace on our cards. I think the photo
is self explanatory!

Stamp: Inkadinkado, DP: Heidi Grace, Ink: Colorbox Chalk Ink, Chestnut Roan, Flower Soft (Heather)

That's all I have for today! It is a beautiful day in Missouri. I am headed back to the hallway to hang some pictures! Hope you are all having a great Friday!

~A bumper sticker I saw yesterday: Honk if you love peace and quiet.

Blue is definitely the floor, otherwise, your ladies would be standing on the wall right?! Great freehanding! What talent!

SAM said...

Love both cards. If you're hanging pictures in the hallway, that means you finished painting?!? Let me guess, at least the hallway is done!

Barb said...

These are great, Patti! I totally saw the first one as floor & baseboard :) What a fun scene!

LOVE the lace & flowery goodness of the second one... just lovely!

Crystal said...

WOW how fun is that first card...GREAT images and what a fab scene!!! Second one is a beauty!!

Cat said...

Hi, Patti! Your inside card turned out great, and the lace on the other card is beautiful! I cleaned up my craft spot, much to my husband's joy. Sometimes it's just easier to leave it all out when I know I'm going right back to it in the Hubby is taking me out to dinner so I owed him one. Enjoy your weekend1

Glittered Paws said...

Carolyn V said...

Holy Shmoley! These are both so fantastic! Love that inside scene... so detailed (and let's face it, that's a one-of-a-kind sentiment and it's fab!) Totally blue floor and baseboard IMO.

The second card... Gorgeous! I am so going to buy Heather FlowerSoft now... I'm going to tell my hubby that it's all your fault. LOL

Vicki said...

Oh lovely card Patti, I love the tree image and the flower soft you have used looks really effective,
