Challenge Cards!

Both of these cards have images from designers that I really like!  So bearing this in mind, I wanted to make the image the focal point of the cards!

This is my first one with Lily of the Valley image on it.  I followed Dawns fabby sketch (which I found harder than I thought!!!) - hubby came in and found me a nice piece of green card from my stash!

Would also like to enter it into Crafty Sentiments Challenge this week - a birthday theme!!!  Have only just discovered the blog and there is a rather fabby digi freebie on there to check out!
And this is for a challenge over at Karen's Doodles.  I just love this image!  Makes me laugh everytime I see it!  And it colours up a dream!

The challenge was to include a tag!  I really hope I don't have occassion to use this particular card - well, not with that tag anyway!  Wow - just thought - you could make a few different cards, a few different tags and give them to someone as a kind of "pick and mix"!!!  That way they will always have the right sentiment to go with the right image!  OK - you read it here first...its my intellectual property!  LOLX

Well - time to go and do other things! Oooops pick up my child!!!

Thanks for looking
