Paper shelter challenge

Afternoon everyone in blogland! I am on vacation this week so have managed to make 2 cards (so far), one of which I can show you now, the other has to wait a few days. I am also going to show you how I keep track of some of my craft items so I don't buy multiples of things.  Ok, first off is a card for The Paper Shelter which is a sketch.
Their images are just so darn cute and whimsical! I mean, look at the happy dragon he gets to ride. I wanna fly a dragon to work too! Can you just imagine the look on my patients faces if I landed in their front yard on a dragon? Probably best not to do that, could induce a coronary!  I am sorry I don't know who this paper is by, I have had it set aside with the partially colored image for awhile now but the sentiment is from lotv (thanks Elaine!) and the folded flower behind it is a die from The Cats Pajamas, much easier to use than the long folded strips I think.

Ok, here is my second item which I made about a year ago but took apart to put one of the new kraftin kimmie images on it and took to the stamp show this past weekend.

It is just a small book made with my bind it all, I added dividers to section into areas (stickles, spellbinders, twinkling h20's etc) and then used Graphic 45 paper and the new Clarabelle fairy on the front to decorate it. I added a little bling but nothing that stands out much as I carried it around in my purse. Excuse the handwriting, pretty sloppy I know but it works.  Ok guys, that is it for me for today but stay tuned, I have a feeling I just might be back tomorrow! Oh how I love vacation time...
