not missing just busy

hi everyone,
I know, I know, I've been gone for awhile. The weather is beautiful and my husband is back to work. So I've been trying to catch up with things. I'm so far behind with inventory. My first craft show of the year is next week and I'm no where near ready for it. I was starting to go though stamping withdraw. So I had to take an hour and play. I have 2 cards to show you for 4 challenges.
This first one is for CASology and Less is more.

Here is the card I created

My colors are
Whisper White and  Not Quite Navy. I also used my Poppy Parade marker.
Stamp Sets are
Toy Box and Humors Sayings
I added a little texture with a Cuddle Bug embossing folder

Now for card 2
This one is for the Dynamic duos and CAS(E) this Sketch

This is my card

I used Blushing Bride for my card basic and the Calypso Coral for my scallop circles. The stamp sets I used were  Easy Events and On Your Birthday.

I colored my snails with matching markers and put a little Liquid glass on the shells. also I added texture with the Prefect Dots embossing folder.
I hope you like my cards. Now I got to get back to work. Please stop back again soon.
