Colour Create & Sketch & Stash Challenge


I'm entering this card into two challenges this week. I don't usually combine challenges but the colour's I've chosen are perfect for Colour Create who would like to see cards using orange, green & Brown. The other challenge I've entered my card into is challenge #9 on Sketch & Stash. There is a fab sketch to follow and also they would like to know which new item you have used on your card, in my case it is the green buttons.
The image is a Messy Rabbit image coloured using Pro-markers, papers are Basic Grey, ribbon from stash.
Thanks for looking

Hanglar


Another card using one of the Hanglar stamps from the kit club. I have made this card for a friend who loves gardening.
The design papers are K&Co and I've used Pro-markets to colour in the image. I have also used my new Prima border stamps to create some interest to the corners.

A Spoon Full Of Sugar


No post's for over a week then two in one day! I have decided to enter this card into this week's challenge on A Spoon Full Of Sugar "to die for", my die shape being the circle cut out on my Cricut Expression so I hope that counts.
It's Poppy's 12th birthday in a couple of weeks and so I wanted to make her a lovely bright card as she is my ray of sunshine and always make me feel so proud to be her Mum.
Today we've been to the NEC for The Gadget Show Live which was fab. Roger & Poppy were in their element as they are both into gadgets. Hope you've had a good weekend too.

Cute Card Thursday















A card at last! I can't believe it has been over a week since my last post. I am entering this card into this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge Floral Fantasy. You can just make out my flower on the bottom left hand corner of my card, made using two different sizes of retro punch. This card was inspired by a lady called Sassa who is from Norway , she has the most beautiful blog. The image I have used is from the Hanglar Spring kit club and design papers are K&Co.

Hanglar


Another card for my Mum for her birthday. This time I have used a stamp from the new Hanglar kit club, these have to be my all time favourite stamps. I am so lucky to have a very special friend who buys them on my behalf.
The design paper is Life's Journey by K&Co which I really like as it has a vintage look to it. The image has been coloured using Pro-markers.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend
Thanks for looking
