Back in Blogland!

Back from summer vacation with a BIG post to share the cards I created for the challenges over at Addicted to Stamps and More while I was away!!! 

Card #1 was created for challenge #155 our Photo Inspiration week and our lovely sponsor was Bugaboo Digi Stamps... 

Card #2 was created for challenge #156 our Anything Goes week and our lovely sponsor was Sami Stamps...
