Two for One!

Good Afternoon!!!! Guess what? Today I have made two cards !!! It was just that kind of day. I have no clue but for some weird reason I am in the happiest of moods. Now granted I am always pretty much a very happy person , but the last few days have been especially stressful. I have a competition this Friday and I don't feel so ready (stamina wise) not because I haven't been working hard but because I was off the ice for so long and only two days ago resumed spinning... Anyway I think I had a break down yest. because the night before I found out my doggy needs to get some xrays under sedation for his arm they think he has a fracture =( and then to top it off yest evening I had a very rough skate.. Today I dropped my doggy off when I left I felt so sad for him he looked terrified , and now as I sit in my room I feel empty normally hes staring at me on my bed or sitting behind me on my chair. Either way, I decided I had two options 1) self pitty 2) get over it . I chose to get over it... so I browsed some amazing blogs and blog challenges found some inspiration and made two cards. Oh and Jamming to all sorts of mixed music really helps too: right about now... I have heard the banjo, jammed to Jamaican ..rocked out and now am feeling the Latin vibes. Hahah okay no more crazy rambling from this gal. Here are my cards.

The first Card I made was inspired by two challenges, for some reason they just meshed well. The layout is from the Unscripted sketches blog, and the design inspiration came form the Runway Inspired Challenge . Go and check out their awesome sites!

My second card is for the TEN MINUTE Craft DashCD_16large... I was in such a crafty mood I made my quickest card to date ! I made this cutie in just 4 minutes and 31 Seconds!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is an ultimate record for me... I think It was really easy because I used pretty much the same supplies as in the first card, only with different colors. I love love love love it. I hope you love it too.
