You're Unbelievable/Lawnscaping Challenge #128

Time for another Lawnscaping Challenge.  This one is a sketch challenge, which I've never done before.  I have to say, though, that I really liked having the sketch to draw from.  It took some of the guesswork out of it for me!  Once I saw those two diagonal lines, I thought of a highway.  And that, of course, led me to the Happy Trails set.  Big Foot was an afterthought. 
I have to be honest...this card was my fourth attempt! The other three just didn't make the cut!  Lawn Fawn sets used:  Happy Trails stamps/dies, Lovable Legends stamps/dies, tree background die, So Jelly (inside sentiment), Journal dies (stars).  I used the mirror stamping technique so that one of the cars could travel the opposite direction.  This card is as CAS as I am capable of!  Here's the inside:

I really enjoyed this sketch challenge!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!!!

Gathering Flowers/Lawnscaping Challenge #127

Another Lawnscaping Challenge.  I almost didn't make a card for this challenge...I'm not too good with florals.  I thought I'd give it a try anyways.  Here's what I came up with:

I watercolored the background using my Koi watercolors.  That's another skill I'm trying to improve upon!  I used the following Lawn Fawn sets:  Party Animals, Love You S'more (squirrel), Happy Harvest (sunflowers), Our Friendship Grows (vase and stem/leaves), Life is Good (sentiment).  Pattern paper is from Polka in the Meadow and Perfectly Plaid.  Images were colored with Copic markers.

I will be entering this into Lawnscaping Challenge #127/Beautiful Florals
Off to add it...almost out of time.  One of my goals is to post more often and also enter some of the other card making challenges out there.  Thanks for visiting my's really appreciated!!
