Mini Card Mania!

Hi blogland!  This is going to be a short post simply because I'm really tired but I wanted to share a few projects with you!  I just recieved my blog candy from the lovely Laurel Beard in the mail today, and I've already put it to good use!  I've been really into making smaller cards lately... mainly because they are both fun to send and often a challenge to make!  Here are two that I came up with:
The Play Date Cafe Color Challenge #65 had really great colors this week, and so I wanted to give it a try!  Even though it's winter, I tried to make this tree look like it was a birch tree transitioning from summer to fall.  And of course I added a few fun embellishments!

I just love this little guy!  As a dog owner I'm a sucker for doggie stamps!  This little guy is just perfect for a little valentines day card!  =)  This one wasn't for any challenge, I just couldn't resist him!  =)

Well, that's all I have for you today, don't forget to sign up for the giveaway!!!  There's only a few days left!  As always, thanks for your comments and support!
