Second round for both DCM dares

Here are two more cards. The first is for last nights "stamp with a twist". I wanted to do a fun kids card as someone I know has a boy coming up 6 & he loves boats. He draws them like this all the time, so I figured it would be the type of boat he will want to see on his card.
I had to pop to a work mates house first as she had the wiggly type of potato masher & mine is just rounded with slots... See I have decided potato mashers are my thing!!!
I also used some bule wrap, some papermania ribbon & some sticky ribbon. Oh & a chopped up cocktail stick, so perhaps this card also belongs in the "Use the kitchen" dare from a few weeks ago!!!!


This second card is the first one I made for the Mid week dare, with the recipe of 5 flowers, 3 patterned papers & a piece of ribbon. I couldn't get the design to work for me, so I tossed it into a drawer & made the red dots & tag one as seen in my previous post.
This one pleased me as I used scraps up & cut circles from them. The large heart is a colorbok's doo dads. The small "love" is from the MM wedding charms pack. Best wishes is a silver peel off & I used a piece of white ric rac. As I used circles I decided to round the edges of the square card.The small purple flowers are from Crafty Carrot.

hehehe Your friend mus think you've totally lost the plot. "Can I borrow your potato masher because I want to make a card...."

Looks great and I love those soft pastel colours.
