Warm weather, Here I come!

Hello everyone, so excited here in snowy New Jersey cause I'm packing for my trip to CHA.  Just checked the weather in Los Angeles and it looks like it's gonna be in the mid 70's!  Leaving tomorrow morning and will be in Sunny California for a whole week - OMGosh, I can't wait!!!   Anyways....this week I have a couple cards to share with you: First off a Get Well card made based on this week's sketch at Get Sketchy.  Stamps are from the   "How You Doin?" and "Now and Always" sets.  Basic Grey papers, a button, twine and a few Dew Drops finish it off:


Next is a card based on the first two weeks of the Ippity challenge combined:  the sketch and color combination  challenges.  The sentiment is from the Regal Greetings set and the image is from the "Cherish Your Dreams" set.    I also used "Dots For Sure" on the background.  A felt border, ribbon and a button finish it off along with a bit of aging with Walnut stain distress ink.



If you're interested in any of the stamp sets featured here (or any of the other fabulous {ippity} sets, they are all available through my sales site, Stamp{ippity}. 

The full listing of hop participants can be found here.

Thanks for stopping by, till next time...
