Two cards, three challenges

Dream on... dream until your dream comes true... (beautiful Aerosmith old song)
I love this image from Softpencil, it´s so sweet. I colored the image with chalks and colored pencils, added some gold glitter glue dots and clear dew drops
This card I made it to participate in Aly´s Sunday Challenge and Challenge #57 at Crafty Creations Challenge blog.

A cup of tea shared with mom is one of life´s little pleasures...
this image is from Shirley´s 2 girls and I colored with colored pencils and blended with vaseline. I stitched around the patterned papers with embroidery floss and some glass beads, and placed the image with dimensional tape.
I followed the sketch given at I Love Digi Challenge blog where the theme is to make a card for mum.
In both cards I used Summer Driggs digi papers that I printed out on cardstock.
