Muse Card Challenge #250; SSS Flickr Challenge #89

Hi there blog friends ~ I'm back to share a few cards I've been working on...First one is for this week's challenge at Muse. Kim Heggins created this adorable card to inspire us:


While rummaging through my stash, I spotted these MFT arched dies and thought it would be fun to use them for my card...


These little MFT critters make me happy, and they work perfectly with the arch dies...I colored each one with Copic markers and stenciled the clouds behind them. The sentiment is from PTI.

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

My 2nd card is for the current SSS Flickr Challenge for the theme 'Friendship'.


I used SSS Sending Flowers stamp set for the blooms and Sending/Wishing for the stamped sentiment. The 'hugs' die cut is also SSS and it's one of my all-time faves :)

Wishing you all a happy weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by ~

i think your MUSE card is even cuter than the inspiration card - those little critters peeking out of the arched dies are adorable - and the peachy colors of your flowers is so pretty on your SSS card!!

Such a cute MUSE card. Those little critters peeping out of their windows are just adorable.

Those perfectly colored little critters are so cute peeking out from the card, Barb.

Love the use of the half circle to give the animals a ledge to look out of! And using those florals as a border is a genius idea! Thanks so much for joining us at Muse this week!

Your little critters peeking out of their windows are just adorable, Barb ... and I love the soft pretty-in-pinky-peach daisies with the subtle ombré sponged sentiment ... it's just so charming! Hugs, Anita :)

Oh, Barb, this is so adorable. I love all your little critters, the cloudy background and those brilliant arched windows.

The arched openings are perfect for the little critter images!

Your arch die has created the perfect spot for your sweet little critters to rest. Adorable card Barb ... love those sponged clouds in the background. Your hugs card is so pretty ... soft, delicate colours. Any one receiving this card would instantly feel better. xx

Love how you have changed up the circles to semi-circles, so clever and so cute Barb!

Eep! Those little guys peeking out are so much fun! I bought that stamp set for the same exact reason, but haven't used them yet. Such a beautiful CAS floral beauty! I love making cute cards, but your second style is the kind I like to send out to my grown-up friends.

Two gorgeous cards, Barb! Those wee critters are just perfect peeking through the arch die-cuts. And the layout of your second card is beautiful. The way the flowers are stamped off the card really draws the eye.
