Happy New Year!!

My first card, well... actually cards, of the year.  I have been wanting to make a card for the current Stamping Sisters In Christ challenge to make a card using inches.  When I was checking out my blogging friend Brenda's blog I saw that she had used a sketch provided by Lucy for a really sweet card she made.  I took a look at Lucy's sketch and my inchie card was finally born.   I ended up making two, though, because I was interested in seeing how the card would work two different ways.  There isn't alot different about them, but that slight difference gives each their own unique look.  The stamps are from The {Stamps} of Life Hearts2Love set. The color combo comes from the Play Date Cafe'.  Both cards will be dropped off with my local OWH shipper, Sandy, later this week.   Here is card #1:


And here is card #2:


Thanks for taking a peek... hope you will let me know what you think!  My personal favorite is card #1.

Supplies:  PTI Fine Linen & white cardstock; PTI Berry Sorbet Bitty Dots Basic pp; Ink:  Stampin Up! Melon Mambo & Cameo Coral; Stamps:  {Stamps} of Life Hearts2Love; Marvy 1" square punch
