Mojo108 From Me to You and FS140 Casing Chris

Happy Thursday!!!

I'm gonna take my girls shopping today!!! So glad *fall break* is almost over....he,he,he!!!! I'm pooped out!!!

I did manage to do a bit more stampin' - wahooo!!! My first card is for the Mojo108 Sketch.















The *tree* Stamp is from the Patterned Pines Set. The sentiment is from the Best Yet Set.

The DP is from the Holiday Lounge Collection. For decoration I added the Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, the Designer Filigree Brad with a Circled Ice Rhinestone in the center. I also added some piercing around the edges.

**************************************************

My second card is for this weeks FS140 - our very own Chris aka *glowbug* !!! She is a sweety and I'm so happy to be on the same ODBD DT with her!!! Even though I'm a few days behind....I wanted to case this beautiful card from Chris.

Here is what I've changed - layout, colors, no stitching.















I again used the awesome MTSC43 Sketch for my card. I used the same *With Deepest Sympathy* Set from Our Daily Bread Designs.

The image was inked in Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copic Markers. The DP is from the Delicate Dots Collection. I finished the card off with some Silver Pearls and a Brown Satin Ribbon.
