Two Cards for 2 Sketches 4 You!

I am usually late with the sketch challenge over at 2 Sketches 4 You, but not this week! I was on a roll with this week's sketch! The first card is for my soon to be 3 year old nephew. You remember the happy guy down below? He told me, " I am gonna have a "train" party." So to go with the theme of the party, I made him a personalized train card! What says personalization like Just Rite stamps? ! The center image was picked up at Archivers in their invitation aisle. The DP is about a hundred years old I think! LOL! The rest is pretty self-explanatory.
The second card is made with October Afternoon paper purchased at Noel Mignon's store! (Her store always stocks the newest stuff!) The stamp set is by SU! I colored it in with my Copics. I distressed all of the edges and added a pretty satin bow. I tied the button on and attached the glittered heart with a jump ring. The little circles on the bottom were from my jewelry making days. (Yep, dabbled in that craft too! IF only there were more hours in the day......*sigh*)
