Ackkkkk!!! It's Thursday!!

I can't believe it is Thursday already! It's been an odd week for me. Due to vision problems, I have not worked on anything in a few days because everything is so blurry. Despite the fact I have been to my optometrist twice in the past few weeks and have an appointment tomorrow, my vision is not improving. Everything is slightly blurred and night driving has become terrible with light reflections. I am completely dismayed that my astigmatism will cause me to never have clear vision. The past few months my sight has decreased rapidly. I went to have my eyes checked and we have tried a new lens but it's just not working. In fact, I took it out for 24 hours and there appeared to be no difference between wearing it and not. Huh? Okay need to pump this out because I feel a headache coming on.
Here are the 2 sketch challenges for 2 Sketches 4 You this week. I used some recycled items on each card. I like to reuse packaging for products if I can.
First is Kazan's #15:



I used a recycled priority mail box for the card base, some warm white acrylic paint, Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste papers, Prima flower, AC Moore ribbon,Kaiser Craft Pearls, and a red satin button


Bonus Sketch by Heidi:

Supplies: flat green card, Teressa Collins Tis the Season Tag papers, Prima Say it in Crystals packaging (black polka dot),Making Memories black shimmer alphabet stickers, black card stock, and Sharpie black marker
