A Coupla Cards

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  Another dreary day here in PA, I had only a couple of minutes to stamp yesterday and I needed a thank you card.  We allow an NA (Narcotics Anonymous) group to use our church for meetings, and they always set up chairs and tables for us when we have an event.  It is a BIG help for me, so I made them some cookies and wanted to give them a card as well.  This card should have taken about 5 minutes to make, although it took longer just to diecut the fox and scallop!  I was in a real hurry so it was definitely a rush job!  It's for the Stamp Ink Paper challenge, which is to use a large sentiment:



My sentiment is from an old SAB set called So Very Much, stamped directly on to some Photo Play paper called Autumn Day, with Early Espresso ink.  The fox was on the opposite side of the paper; I just diecut him with a circle die and added an Early Espresso scallop border:


In hindsight, I should have used a different color card base, but I already had this one cut and scored, and as I said, I was in a rush, LOL!  

The next card is one I made a couple of days ago; at our latest club meetings, we played with embossing paste and stencils, so I made this little scene to show the clouds from our Pattern Party Decorative Masks.  I must be on a fox kick, 'cuz look....another fox!


I used Foxy Friends and the coordinating punch to make my little fox; the trees were cut with the matching die from a couple of years back, and I hand-cut the mushrooms and tree stump.  I added a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings just for fun:


And since Festive Friday's challenge this week features "clouds", I am entering it there!

Two beauties...you and Cassidy! I see various SU colors in your tops!! Cute cards. I'm sure the NA group will be appreciative. It has been sunny here every day. We got rain late afternoon and at night yesterday but it only increased the humidity. 90 degree weather every day is the pits but it's better than a hurricane.
