For my first card, I used Quackers the Duck:

QuakersTheDuck1

The sketch is from iSpy Sketches.  I paper pieced most of Quackers and colored his tongue and did some shading with Copics.  A bit of twine and the matching sentiment finish off the card.

For my second card, I used the beautiful Heartfelt Sentiments:

HeartfeltSentiments2

I said it before, but I just *love* this set!!  The sentiments and fonts are just fabulous!!  The sketch for this card is from Sketch Saturday and the rolled rose and leaf dies are from My Favorite Things.  I finished off the card with some inking around the edges and machine stitching.  Hope you like them!
