Cards for two challenges at STV

Good morning - having to post these quick - they are already over on STV...

the first is for Tina's color challenge to use royal blue, yellow and red!!!  wow - had to think on this one. These bright colors are a little out of the ordinary for me....used Gina K's "Retro Boutique" by Asela...and paper pieced the dress. Used Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety dp and the Peony and Fancy tags nesties...flowers and brads from stash!

this second card is for Gina's two-fold challenge to:
First, make a card that would make someone smile, lift their spirits or will let them know you were thinking about them or could use a little pick-me-up and then mail it to them.


used images from Gina's "Spring Mix" set.... cardstock from GKD, colored with copics, ribbon from stash, and background stamp is from Michaels.

well, tonight after work is my Bible study with the women in jail - would really appreciate your prayers....also, would you please pray for my dear sister-in-Christ, Fiona - she is having some serious physical problems and currently in the hospital - if you would like to send her some encouragement, you can pop onto her blog from here.  I know she would appreciate it....thanks so much

have a blessed day,
