Mini Cards - CARDS Gallery Challenge and Moxie Fab Doily/Lace Challenge!

Hi Friends!

It feels soooooo good to be back to creating.  I spent the whole day today stamping with one of my chickies, and I had so much fun!  Plus I was super productive . . . it felt good to get my fingers inky after what felt like weeks.  I was super inspired by this week's CARDS Gallery Challenge, which is to create Mini Cards, no bigger than 3" cards.  These two cards also qualify for the Moxie Fab Doilies and Lace challenge.  The lace image is a new one from Technique Tuesday.  I stamped it in Versamark, and then heat embossed with Zing/American Crafts EP - one in White, the other in Cricket.  Fun, huh?  For some reason, Grape Jelly was the contrasting color that kept jumping into my hands for both cards.  What do you think?

Thank You
