Goin' to the Market

I think I will make a few cards for one of my favorite vendors at the local Farmer's Market. I have, until now, unused veggie stamps. Can't think of anyone who would appreciate them more! I'll start  off with this one inspired by the sketch challenge over at Just Us Girls. I liked the sketch so much I made two cards with it. I must be hungry - both of them involve food!

Daughter Amy, of course, will be the recipient of the cupcake card as that is the rule of the Bubble! All owl and cupcake cards go to Amy's card stockpile!

  1. Oh made 2 cards!!! Love them both and yes you must have had food on the brain that is for sure! On the first one I love that it's outside the box with the veggies and love the way you did the sentiment! On your second card, the balloons in the background and the yummy cupcakes are a great combo! Well done on both counts Nancy and thanks for playing along with us at Just Us Girls...we appreciate you!

  2. Both of your cards are great and wonderful use of that fun sketch you worked with. Thanks for joining our food for thought challenge over at Little Red Wagon.

  3. These are great! Love both the veggie and the cupcake cards. Great job with the sketch! Thanks for joining us this week at Just Us Girls!

  4. Two cute, cute cards! Those cupcakes look good enough to eat - but then again, so do the veggies!! Love both of them.

  5. Love both cards!!! And now I'm hungry lol love the take on the sketch and how they are both so different even if you used the same sketch.

  6. Not one, but two fantastic cards! Your coloring is beautiful with so much depth. Now you are making me hungry with all the food. Thanks for playing with us again at JUGS!
