A couple of Card challenges...

 I have been very unmotivated this past week or so, and not feeling great as the maple trees are starting to envelope us in their yellow pollen.  But because I consider it a "job"  something I was called to do...I try to make a few cards every week for OWH. To that end, I always try to include a challenge or 2.

This Card is for  MOJO MONDAYS sketch challenge (sidebar) and SIR STAMPALOT theme "fantasy"(on my blog list)  The Cheshire Cat image is a digi stamp by Mo Manning. I just love her art! :)  I am not a big "Alice in Wonderland" fan (I know that puts me in the minority) But I do like the Cheshire cat and the Hookah smoking Caterpillar. BTW, does anyone know if the caterpillar has a name?

and this one is for  Simon says- theme "Things with Wings"...and I must admit I started to use Mojo Monday's sketch for this also, but couldn't make it work. :(  this is a digi image from Mo her chubby fairies :)
