More VSN Cards

Hello Friends & Followers!  I am happy to report we weathered the storm just fine - we did lose power briefly but not long enough for the sump pump in the basement to shut down (thank heavens!) - so thank you all for your thoughts & prayers and I hope you were as lucky as well.  

Today I continue with more 'made in 45 minutes or less' VSN cards.  The first was for a challenge that required us to use wood, woodgrain, images of objects made of wood, etc.  I knew it was the perfect challenge to break in my new stamps from The Craft's Meow by Jenny Suchins called 'Owl Be Thinking of You' so I decide to use The Craft's Meow's August Sketch for the challenge as well:
(please click on the photo for clearer resolution).  I used Martha Stewart punches to create the grass and the 'sun' which has a bright yellow button twined with Twinery twine at it's center and background stamp from PTI to create the woodgrain looking DP in the background.  The tree and cutie pie owls are colored with Copic markers.  

My second card was for a VSN challenge that required us to use (1) something with a bandana print, and (2) paper piecing.  I borrowed  this week's Sketch Saturday Sketch 170 to create this card:

(Please click on photo for clearer resolution).  I obviously used bandana print ribbon and paper pieced some denim patterned paper onto the overalls of the cute little boy from My Favorite Things' 'Dog-Gone Cute' and attached little silver domes as the snaps after coloring him and his canine companion with Copic markers.  For a little balance I stamped the images and sentiment at 2:00 and 8:00 from MFT's 'You Had Me at Woof!".  This card also fulfills the following additional challenges:

It feel so good to be creating again, thank you all so much for stopping by to see my creations.  I just might have a second post for you later today... if not, there should be one on Monday since Monday night is the upload deadline for VSN on SCS.  Happy Sunday Everyone!
