Thanks CPS for two weeks of crafting inspiration!

Well, I did it!  I finished all 15 of the CPS Anniversary sketches!  Thank you CPS for two weeks of inspired creativity and now my card stash has been replenished!  So here are the last two cards for the challenges.

This first card was based on the sketch from Day 13.  I had a bit of fun with this one and created my old little apple feltie using stamps from Paper Smooches.  I stamped the apple image with Palette Noir ink onto some regular craft felt (e.g. the cheap stuff LOL!), cut out and pieced together.  I kept with an apple theme on the card and used a Lifestyle Crafts/Quickutz embossing folder for the background and some school themed papers from October Afternoon.  One day, hopefully soon, I'll learn how to sew in straight lines LOL!

Stamps:  Falling for You set (apple) from Paper Smooches, Vegtastic (sentiment) from Paper Smooches
Ink:  Palette Noir
Papers:  DCWV cardstock, October Afternoon papers, Bazzill cardstock
Accessories:  Craft felt, twine from The Twinery, Lifestyle Crafts/Quickutz embossing folder, Spellbinder's die, Fiskars tag punch, red brad
Sketch:  CPS Anniversary Sketch Day # 13 (CPS # 121)

This second card was created using the sketch from Day 4. I flipped the sketch upside down and shifted one of the elements a bit so that my shamrock embellishment didn't hide the Noteblock image.  I kept the colours simple (kraft and green) and added a pre-made shamrock embellishment and some green twine to the card.

Stamps: St. Patrick's Day Noteblock from Purple Onion Designs
Ink: Adirodack Meadow
Paper: Bazzill cardstock
Accessories: twine from The Twinery, Cuttlebug embossing folder, felt shamrock (Darice), Wood button
Sketch: CPS Anniversary Sketch Day 4 (CPS # 220 ), Spellbinders scalloped rectangle die
