Peachy Keen Challenge #55 and a prize on offer!!!!!

Well, when I made my first card, I wasn't exactly thrilled with it for some reason.
It seemed a bit 'bland' if you know what I mean.
Here it is........
As this is a sad card, (and we need those now and again, don't we).....
 ....I thought I'd make a contrasting 'happy' card!......

I used my gorgeously cute little bunny, PK-287, Bawlin' Bunnies.
Only MY little poppet isn't bawlin'!
THAT'S 'coz I masked off her sweet unhappy face
and stamped a happy face, using PK-291, Sampler package of faces.
What brilliant possibilities there are, having the ability to swap and change expressions to suit the mood!!

Well, I hope you like my sad/happy cards today.
There are of course some FABULOUS cards for you, created by my amazing DT Sistahs,
for you to ogle over at the Peachy Keen blog.

Plus!! We have the amazingly talented DIANE (Capadia Designs), joining us this week as our Guest Designer. Please give her some love and check out all the details for playing along with us.  

That's not all folks!!!
I'm giving away a fabulous set of Peachy faces today, to celebrate me feeling as if my mojo is waking up!

All you need to do, is leave me a comment telling me which card you like best. 
The happy one, or the sad one.
  I will draw a winner on Monday 4th July.

Hi Vivienne,

I love both your cards...on the first I love the base colors you used and the kitty is absolutly cute..Yes, we all need a cheering up card and this is the perfect pick me up card. Your second card is beautiful..Love, love how the blue stands out. Thank you for sharing your talent with me.

I of course love the happy one - just because I love happy cards (don't we all?) - but your little sad one is adorable and sweet, and those kind of cards are SOOO hard to make! Guess I didn't really answer, but I love them both!!!


Christina said...

I like both of them, but happy is my favorite. You did a great coloring job.

Melissa said...

Love the bunny card... Bunnies should be on every card.

Glora said...

Oh Viv, these are both stunning! You want me to pick a favorite how could I. Each is perfect for its purpose. I guess I'm going to say the bunny card because I just love the coordinating polka dot paper in large and small dots and of course the beautiful way you colored you bunny. I'm so glad you are feeling your mojo. Hugs and Love - Glora

Newbie said...

I also love them both! They are beyond cute, but if I must pick, I would pick the kitty! There is just something about that cute kitty, even though it is sad! :0)

Got2BCrafting said...

Oh come on... that's like asking me to pick between two different pieces of chocolate... I LOVE THEM BOTH!!! The first one card has such a sweet little kitty, plus I love those colors together. The second card is just so cute.. it made me smile the minute I saw it (and I adore those polks dots)! Congrats on getting your mojo back... looks like its in full swing! :)

They are both super but I like the sad one better, it is so sweet and I love the colors!

terriavidreader (IN-USA) said...

I like both cards. Thanks for a chance to win those faces!!

Beth Norman said...

Two wonderful cards. The kitty is pretty in pink, but the blue happy face really pops right out of the computer. I think it is that lovely polka dot paper. Your smiling bunny is so cute. It's hard to imagine how you masked it off. Aren't you clever.

amie said...

well now this is a hard one !!!
But it has to be the happy one !
i love this card and might give it ago myself :)
thanks for sharing


Shannen said...

Wow, Viv! So hard to choose, they're both so gorgeous!! But... I do love the little kitty. And how cool is that card to have on hand for an occasion when words are not enough... So it's the sad one for me! TFS and for the chance! 8-)

Jackie said...

Viv, they are both superb as your cards always are, but I must confess I do like happy so that's the one I am going for :o)
Luv, Jackie xx
