Both cards are so beautiful, JoJo! I especially love the colors and your use of the striped dp and diamond embossing on the second one. The sketch design is really cool; maybe I'll get some time to use it and play this week since I'm off from work (woo-hoo!)
I spent today cleaning up the mess from the tornado that hit my stamping room in all my holiday preparations. Then I got to play a little bit with my new Cricut that hubby gave me for Christmas! I finally got him his Kindle and he is crazy about it!
I trust your holidays were good, too. We have one more family get together Sunday afternoon and then we can kick our feet up and relax! Hugs, dear friend!
