Cards for fun!

I had to do something with myself and my husband has gone on another trip for business so what to do when you're all alone and need to save your sanity?  CRAFT!
The first card i am sharing is another one that i had to play with my new airbrush system on, and i created a spotlight for our dear "Tramp" from Mo's store to stand under.  My brother in law is celebrating a birthday in a couple of months so this will be sent on to him.  I am gonna enter the challenge on Crafts and Me with this card.
Then the second card that i made, i have had this image for a little while and decided that i would just HAVE to make a card with it, isnt it just darling?  I used the sketch on the Sugar bowl so am gonna enter their challenge.  I also made a box for it to be sent in, and you can find my box tutorial HERE

Hope everyone is having a great crafting weekend
P.S: the secret crafter has a new challenge that wants "baby" cards so this one is getting entered there too, and if you have been onto the challenge blog for CES they have a beautiful photo inspiration using gingham so i am entering there also.
