Today's cards

Today a new friend came over and I showed her how to make a couple of cards.
The first used a mask and the second was an easel card.

This is an easel card that I made:

I had already embossed the card base using an edge die to say 'with love'.
I used red card and DP from a Papermania Capsule Collection by Jesse Edwards to cover the base, the folded portion and the stopper. The image is a Free Dearie Dolls digi, just highlighted with Promarkers. I stamped Merry Christmas at the front edge and added buttons and pearls to finish.

I am going to submit this to 

I then started on a sketch - Stella Says Sketch #146

This is my take on it - very simple - banners from papers out of my scraps
 and the image is from Bugaboo's MSChristmas Tags.
Just a little bit of colour added - in particular to make the bird into a robin!

 I am submitting this to

Happy Crafting!!
