Birthday card and a 4x4

These are what I was working on over the weekend, two absolutely fab digi stamps, I love them both :D

This stamp is one of the new ones by Stitchy, isn't she just fantabulous? I really wanted to add some glitter to her wings, but I've been completely unable to find my clear Sakura Stardust pen. I've actually bought three of the darn things, but for some reason I get to use them just once or twice and then they disappear for ever. I think one of the cats must be hoarding them somewhere :P I did everything in PSP again, lol, you didn't really expect anything else did you? :P
I'm entering this one into these challenges:
Friday Sketchers - followed the sketch
Dare You to Digi stamp - hearts/valentines
Fussy and Fancy - hearts
Raise the Bar - hearts
I know this isn't a Valentine's piece, but I have specifically made a hearts paper for it and put kisses on the sentiment, and it will be sent with love. I think maybe we view Valentine's Day slightly differently here in the UK than in the US, as many of you seem to be sending Valentine's cards to lots of different people. Here, you pretty much only send one to your romantic partner, or to someone in whom you're romantically interested. Anyway, that's why it isn't really a Valentine's acrd, I just hope the hearts and kisses and love make it count :)

And this one is a birthday card using a digi stamp by Beary Dust stamps. And she's currently a free gift for follwoers over at the blog :D
I'm entering this one into a couple of challenges.
I've followed the current sketch over at Totally Gorjuss
The colour scheme over at One Stop Craft Challenge is Apple Green, Chocolate and Clotted Cream. I'm not sure that I'd like that combo taste-wise, but I love it colour-wise :D
And, last but not least, one of the challenges over at the JJ forum is to make something green :D

Thanks so much for stopping by :D
