More Hope You Can Cling To Cards

Good evening friends & followers!  I hope your weekend is off to a good start!  I plan on crafting well into the evening hours so I figured I would take a break and post what I have so far.  Two more cards for the Hope You Can Cling To card drive.  The first I made for HYCCT1104 - H.O.P.E., which stands for 'having only paper embellishments' using my favorite color combination: sky blue and chocolate brown (A requirement for this week's Paper Sundaes Challenge 90) and a sketch from Deconstructing Sketches.
I just love coloring this little girl from Gina K. Designs' 'Warm & Cozy Christmas' with my Copic markers.  The patterned paper is from American Crafts' 'Merrymint' collection (which I really love!) and since we could not use any embellishments that were not made of paper, I punched two snowflakes from a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and two 1/4" circles for their centers since I could not use bling or buttons.  In addition to these challenges, this card also fulfills the requirements of this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge - Get in Shape! - to incorporate at lease 3 shapes into a card, mine include circles, ovals or ellipses, rectangles and snowflakes.  

My second card was for HYCCT1112 - Brave Heart to make a card with at least one heart on it.  I decided to use the Repeat Impressions' What If Wednesday Sketch 0511 to make this card:
When I was making it I had Stamp TV's Free-for-All Friday challenge to make an anniversary card in mind, but it seems that challenge has been changed, but that is the reason for the masculine feel to this card - I thought it would be a good masculine anniversary card for a man to give his wife for their anniversary.  This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:

Thanks for stopping by!  I will have more for your viewing pleasure tomorrow.  Cheers!
