10 cards in one afternoon/night

We had a day off work yesterday & after we went & did what we had to do, we came home had lunch & then I decided to make some cards at about 2pm..... at 11pm I thought wow I think I have done enough today :)(mind you I did stop to pick up the kids from school, have playtime outside watching our 5yo daughter attempt to ride her bike with NO training wheels & have dinner too)

So here they are:

This one was with the challenge in mind from SU Ink - Whatyadoin'Wednesday, they wanted us to creat a scene by stamping, so here I placed Swinging Tilda on her bech seat & stamped a teddy from SeeD's & stuck it on the bench beside her & made a little wall hanging. It's a cute little girls card I think.


This cute stamp was sent to me from a friend & it is sooo cute, I just had to make a card with it, so its pretty basically done, just some Chrissy BG paper, mulberry paper mat, stick the image on (after colouring of course) place some lace on the edges, glitter up the star & add a rhinestone in the corner to finish


So at Theme Thursday they wanted a card that shows happy/happiness... so I used another Tilda this time on the bride deck dangling her feet in the water. I added some little blue sparkly stars (for starfish) a bright yellow flower & button in the corner (to represent the sun) & some white rikrak in the other corner (for some clouds) then used a word rub-on "FUN" (to represent the happiness).


This time Tilda is kicking back in her jeans, just sitting on the fence, added some pretty BG paper, some flowers, buttons, ribbon & rhinestones. Cute Card Thursday's challenge is to use fairies & angels, so I sparkled up Tilda's wings.


I gave Tilda a break for this card & used Santa from Art Stamps & used Mojo Mondays sketch for the card.


Another Art Stamp for this Thank you card, I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers


At PB Saturdays they wanted us to just use a PB sentiment only, so I just added some lace, flowers, buttons & rhinestones with some pretty BG paper & ribbon.


I used Kazans sketch for this card, just a pretty card for any occassion.


This was a bit of a fun/silly card, but I know a few people that would get a laugh out of it, at Caarvarks, they challenged us to use a chocolate theme, Arty Girlz wanted us to use a hand drawn element on our card & I loved the sketch from Funky Fairys, so I combined them to make this card.

Firstly I made the little bar of chocolate, I cut some little squares to give the portion look, placed them on some brown mulberry paper, wrapped it up in silver & brown paper, tore off the top to display the chocolate, wrapped some ribbon around it & placed it in the center of the card. For the hand drawn element I wrote Enjoy your day... Eat Chocolate!!


This last card I made for our niece that had her dance concert last weekend, which we couldn't attend, I coloured Ice ballet Tilda in in our nieces club colours - hot pink & black & themed the colours for the card around that too. Just put some pretty pink BG paper, tore some purple paper, placed some black ribbon & some pink rhinestones & sat Tilda on the ribbon.


Well thanks for looking at all my cards, it's funny how all those cards were made in that time frame but they look so quick to be able to put them together when you look at them once they are finished, but thinking about what to use & how to place it all is the time consuming part.

Have a great day
