Two Challenges Today...

Hello again!
Hope you all had a great weekend! It was super hot & humid here all weekend and to the point of when you opened the door to go out, you started to sweat. Hubby spent Saturday out washing the cars and made the remark that no one was outside! I think our temps reached 100 with high humidity. YUK!!
We took Fluffy to the Vet to have her stitches out first thing Saturday and she's doing super. I know she's thrilled to have the lampshade off now. :) After that I spent the rest of the day cleaning. My house was in dire need of it since it was not done since before Fluffy's surgery 2 1/2 weeks ago.
Sunday, we stayed in our pj's most of the day, relaxing and staying cool inside! Then we had some thunderstorms blow thru which dumped alot of rain on us but the best part cooled things down quite a bit!!! :)
Today, hubby had to go back to work so Kels & I were up early to get workin on a batch of banana whoopie pies. Took most of the day and i've had enough of the kitchen for one day!
First thing I would like to share with you today is my card from last week's Sketch Challenge #290 from over at Splitcoaststampers. Below is the sketch & my card....

My second card is from today's Mojo Monday Sketches! I have so missed doing this challenge! Below is the sketch & my card...

Since i'm always in need of masculine cards on my card rack, this challenge was perfect!
It feels so good to be back stamping! Maybe that long break I took was just what I needed! :)

Happy Monday, friends!
Thanks for stopping by today & I hope you liked my cards...

Hey girl, looks like you've been busy! Your cards are both amazing with such perfect details! I love those blue flowers on the first card and I'm wondering now why I never particularly liked that flower die? LOL The 2nd is a great card for a guy with that image, and rustic colors! I haven't done a mojo sketch in ages either.........I need to revisit them again soon.
Stay cool, and I'm so glad Fluffy is doing better these days :)
