Stitches & Sketches

As I was browsing some of my favorite challenge blogs this morning, I found that I have some cards in my stash that I haven't shared here on my blog that fit into current challenges.  I love when that happens. 

Is that cheating?  I sure hope not ;)

Both of my cards were made for the StampNation WCMD Celebration.  This first card was my card for Japan.


Inspired by this photo...





And just so happens to fit this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

 


Next is my card for Canada.


Inspired by the Canadian flag and this photo.


Which just so happens to fit in with the CAS-ual Fridays challenge

These cards are just fabulous. Would you mind sharing how you did the cross stitch border on the Christmas card? It is a perfect detail!
