Two cards in one post...

Hi guys!  Oh my goodness, where did that week go to?!  I have had a couple of card orders to do and been helping with the after school craft club, so haven't had much to share.  I did take a photo of one of the cards that I made for an engagement...at Xmas time, I gave away vouchers for the school and church fairs raffle, allowing the winner to have a bespoke card made for them and this card was one redeemed by the winner...
 ...I love my Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace punch at the moment, as you may have noticed?!  The papers were a downloadable freebie, can't remember where from, and this gave me the starting point for my colours...
...I coloured the sweet LOTV image with my Pro and Flexmarkers (just tretaed myself to some new sets of Flexmarkers...loving them!)  Here's the colours for all you Promarker fans...
Skin : usual combo
Hair (Boy) : Ivory, Vanilla, Sandstone, Caramel, Cocoa   (Girl) : Primrose, Buttercup, Tulip Yellow, Mustard
Dress and bow : Antique Pink, Amaranth Red FM, Crimson, Burgundy
Jumper : Aquamarine FM, DuckEgg, Surf Blue FM, Marine
Shoes : Cool Greys, Satin, Tan, Cinnamon
...I used two of my Marianne Swirl frames to make a larger square behind the circle nestie (one of my fave and most versatile dies of the moment!) I added a lovely mink coloured satin ribbon and bow, a couple of red heart pins and some pearl details.  I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges :
Have a Heart
Love Struck
Love
So, onto my second card...

...I'm not sure about this one, I like the idea, but am just not sure on the execution!!  Don't know if it's the solid blue of the pocket or the red star paper, but there's just something not right...maybe it's just me?!...
...I used the lovely saying 'A boy is...Truth with dirt on his face, etc...'  I added some eyelets to the pocket, baker's twine, olive green button and a metal plane charm to embellish and a bulldog clip on the sentiment...
...the little boy is off the 12 Cards of Christmas disc (I just gave him a new haircut!) and I've 3D paper pieced him for added dimension.  I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges :
Boys and their Toys
Slugs and Snails and puppy dogs tails
Something Metal
Well, that's it from me folks - thanks for dropping by and I'll be back soon with some more crafty creations, Lisa x
