Thinking of You and Take Time for Chai

The sketch this week from Our Creative Corner:
 
I dug into my Cosmo Cricket Earth Love kit again - I have used so much and still have so much left (I bought some when it first came out and then I received my Scrap Shotz kit that was full of it!) good thing it is so fun to play with.  I only had a bit of time to play so this is what I came up with.  The sentiment is from Unity.  Both cards are for the Moxie Fab, Olympics of Stamping.
  

The Challenge this week over at Sassy Studio Designs is a sketch challenge:


I also took in the Design Dollies color challenge:


I decided to use Cocoa Carol again as I needed a card for a friend of mine who works too hard and just needs some reminders to slow down sometimes.  I will include a Starbucks gift card along with it.n  I paper pieced the chair and colored her in with copics. She is mounted on foam squares.  This is also another entry into the Practical Scrappers challenge - stamping and the Scrap Shotz challenge - coloring.
