Caardvarks and The Pink Elephant Challenges

I thought I would do a couple more sketches from these places. I am finding that I like to do card sketches. It really helps when you have lost your mojo. My first card is for the Caardvarks challenge. We were to make a card using some sort of a window. Do you ever wonder what your kitty does while you are away? I have often wondered that. So I thought I'd make a card of what I thought ours does. ..lol...I made the card itself using the George Cricut cart, the design studio and cut the window out of the center. Added some transparency and sewed it in. My Mother in law just love cats and thought this would be a great card to send her in the mail. What do you think? This is what the neighbor kitties would be doing...I love how they are sitting on top of the fence looking in at the other kitty getting ready to play with the fishbowl and wanting to play along...lol... Here's the inside...I left a little area so I could add a note. I used the Cricut George Paper doll dress up Animal Kingdom and Doodlecharms carts to make this card. Pattern paper is from Prima's stack. On the window I used wooden skewers. The Pink Elephant #20 I just found this challenge site and have fallen in love with the past challenges. Not to mention the sketch for this week. I have already made 3 cards using this sketch. But the one I'm going to link up is the one posted below. I thought I would make a card for DH. A just because card. I used Tim Holtz' grungeboard and distress crackle paint for the butterfly wings. Added some Diamond Dust and feathers to the top of them. Bingo card is from Karen Foster and the little door opener is from EK Success sticko line. this is the inside view when the door is opened. I'm still looking for a photo to add to the one side of it of the two of us. just a little closer view of the Diamond Dust and crackle paint. Well that's it for now. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Hugs from a very muggy Charm City
