Two Challenges-Same Supplies-Two Cards

It's end of the soccer year, well, fall season anyway, and I needed a few "thanks coach" cards. I looooove this stamp from Stampin Bella-Jackson the Champion. I hadn't used my Bella stamps in a while so it was great to shuffle through them. I've got plans for a few of them to see ink, real soon.
Two of my favorite sketch challenges each week are by Karen Giron (she also has the cutest watermarks...see mine?) and Jen Del Muro. I print them and never seem to use them on time to link them up. This week I challenged myself to use both of them, and since I need two soccer cards, I decided to use the same supplies on both. This was so fun and made my card making process fast, since I already had the supplies out. AND, I've got two similar, but different cards to give to J's coaches.

First up is Jen's ASFYTT. There's a great prize up for grabs this week too. Did you see the cute stamp set and die by lil' inker??? I want to win! hehehe.
And now here's what I did with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch. Isn't my strip of grass just the perfect accent on this card? Love that die! It's the MFT die-namics Fresh Cut Grass die. Oh and my sentiment is PTI. One last thing....maybe you already know this, but some may not. When I want to make an embellishment or sentiment stick off the side of my card, I always trim down the width of my card. This one measures 3.75 inches. It allows for the card to still fit into a standard A2 envie.
Thanks for hanging with me today. See you back tomorrow for some Hip Hop fun.....and some BIG NEWS!!!!! Trust me, you'll be excited!
