~Grateful & Just the Way You Are

Two more sweet, simple and prissy cards. These are both Jenny Sweeny inspired designs. The grateful card stamps used are SUs "All God's Children" set, I masked the original words on the house stamp to hide them. The technique to showcase here is the added doodling (on the eaves of the house) by moi to make it mine. I think it makes it look like a gingerbread house. I also doodle arted the stone sidewalk. I used the grateful hostess set word stamp in keeping with this cards simplicity, SU card stock celery and watercolor paper, SU celery ribbon

The "just the way you are" QUICK card is a mix of SU stamps "doodle this" and Rosie's little owl, again with my doodling added to the ears. I love the "doodle this" set from SU. I have used it for ground, landscapes, now tree branches and any number of other "outside of the box" designs uses. Did I say LOVE LOVE LOVE it. The ribbon is chocolate brown from hedgehogpink stash (see links below). I really like the placement of the ribbon tied to the outside edge of the card. The glitter is wallyworld or Michaels. I can't remember I bought it 2 years ago.
Both of these cards are for my card library because the watercolor bled in both and I think this makes it look messy for giving. So they will be samples to keep.
Now I am done for the night I swear I am.
off to zzzzzzzzzland.
