Had to Make this a Double Post!

     I don't normally like to double up on my posts, but this was an emergency, with my second card ending in a little over an hour.  Sorry!

     My first card is for the House Mouse Monday Challenge #128.  This time the theme is let's be friends!  I thought this pair looked like quite  the singing duo.

     The card base is Amuse.  I am totally in love with this product, and thrilled that it was gifted to me!  The HM stamps I used are called Two-Part Harmony 02, and Music In My Heart.  I used white and designer paper from Basic Grey's PB&J collection.  The border is made with Die-namics Open Scallop Edge die, and decorated with tiny flowers from my friend Carol.  I dotted the centers with the PB&J paper and topped them with Glossy Accents.  This card with be added to the OWH box, as that great Amuse card has a clean white side, just right for a hero to write a note to home on.

     My second card is created for the Simon Say Stamp Challenge, We're So Trendy, to create with Neon, Chevrons, or Hexagons.  I made this CAS card, and did not realize I was running out of time.  Eek!  I inked with Taken with Teal, Gumball Green, and Melon Mambo SU! inks over a template of hexagons by The Crafter's Workshop.  My sentiment is from the new KOM at Unity, and I added a punched blue heart as my accent.

     Phew, I feel like a just ran a marathon!  I  may actually be back later with another post.  That one involves me playing with my new Gelato's.  Fun, fun, fun!

Mary Anne, Two wonderful cards. Love your HM singing duo. Love those papers and your flowers look awesome (Carol is the best, ins't she?) I also like that Die-namics scallop die. I'll have to look into that one real soon. Your second card is very interesting to me as I picked up those same CW's templates and was hesitant to use them, but now that I see how great yours came out, I will dig them out and give it a try. Great sentiment.

Two-fer the $$$ today! You did some great coloring for that adorable HM card, but the hexagon card is SOOO awesome! I need to check out that tool you used to create this one! The sponged colors around the hexagon design looks SO trendy and amazing! Good luck with both challenges!
