Anything Goes! 2 new Busy Beauties Cards!

Happy Friday!
There is a story behind these cards:)
It started with a challenge win at Penny's Challenge that introduced me to the wonderful creations at Busy Beauties! I got 5 new images from them and just had to give one a try right away. With that card I entered their challenge and low and behold I won! So I got more of the wonderful images!
Then move on to another challenge that I'm a team member on. We had a challenge but the images we needed to use were held up and I really needed to get my card finished. So I made the card with all but the image and I colored in two substitute images in case the original didn't turn up in time. Well just as I'd finished the two images the original popped up in my inbox! So I was left with two cute colored images and no cards to put them on.
I didn't put them away though, I left them on my desk as I so wanted to do something with them.
I had a day away from crafting on Wednesday to do a very late (and very needed) Spring Clean but yesterday I was determined to create a couple of dazzlers to share with y'all (said in my very best Texas accent ;))
