365 Cards End of the Week #55 & #56..whew!!

Hello to all happy Saturday. Well my daughter Chloie (my one and only child) just left for her Senior Prom. She attended Prom last year but she was a Junior. Today she 18 and is a beautiful, sweet, considerate, loving young ladie. I swear I really never took my eyes off of her so I am not sure when this I just adore her she has a very special spirit and a heart of gold. I hopefully will have pictures to share with you all tomorrow. After Prom one of her friend's parents are hosting an after party and the kids can hang out all night if they chose. For those who do stay they will be treated to a pancake breakfast tomorrow morning. I am very greatful for their efforts.

Ok enough gushing cause truly I could go on and on (oops I think I already did...he he). I usually don't put two challenges into one post but needless to say I have bin a wee bit busy the last few days.
The first card is for challenge #55 Card Recipe. We were given a very specific recipe for the card. The CS base had to be 5x5, next a 4x4 DP, one shape that had to be a solid color, 3 jewels/bling and last but not least alpha stickers. I must say it was a little challenging because I tend to over embellish every once in a

My second card is for challenge #56 See Through Saturday we had to use clear acetate for the
card base. I used Clear Card Stock from Papertrey and it rock!!! It is thicker than transperencies which gives you a great base and a sturdy card. I believe it takes the inks better too. I used Stazon ink and I think the results were good.

Once again I would like to thank those of you who visit my blog and especially those who take a moment out of their busy day to leave a comment. I will also repeat myself once again and suggest to you to visit 365 Cards. You will meet some of the nicest from all over the world.
Well I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and take a little time to stamp. I will be back tomorrow with my card for the Super Sketchy Sunday Challenge #57 at 365 Cards. Until then take care.

Peace Out
