A spoon full of sugar Challenge 150 - White and one colour

Hi all! Hope you're enjoying the weekend - what a shame the weather has taken a turn for the worse, although my garden is very grateful for the rain.  The only other compensation is that I've spent some time making some cards instead of gardening.  I usually become a very bad blogger during the summer as my other favourite pastime (gardening) takes over.

I've two cards to show you today.  The first one I'm entering into the aspoonfullofsugarchallenge, the theme is white and one colour.  This was such a quick card to do - I used my new rollagraph wheel and a Prisma pencil (& Sansodor to blend) to colour the blossom and then stamped a Paula Pascqual sentiment.  To finish I added a couple of strips of peel offs.

The layout of my next card was inspired by this card by Kerry. 

The image is a digistamp from here: - I've used Promarkers to colour
The Houndstooth stamp is from Hero Arts
The rest of the background was done on the computer using the same fonts Kerry used: Bookworm and Accord SF Heavy

Apologies if I haven't been round to visit you all recently - I will try better this week.
Bye for now

Two super cards, can't get into the wheels I keep trying and trying but always seem to make a mess.
I am the same in summer out in the garden when it is decent weather not too hot or too cold.
