4 cards for challenges

I made this birthday card with the sketch from Sketches! {by tamara}

At 2 Sketches 4 You, they had a bonus sketch by Ingrid & this is the idea I used for this baby girl card. The image is inside on the insert, with the window cut out of the front of the card

At MTTC they gave us a recipe of '1 ribbbon, 1 flower, 2 buttons and some glitter', this is what I came up with. I stamped the flowers to make the bg paper, put kindy glitz on the flowers, some butterfly buttons & a bit of ribbon. I finished it off with this cute brass butterfly.

& finally I made this card with the sketch at Mojo Monday I'm affraid my Mojo was spent by this card... but oh well my girls love it & are fighting over who is getting it to give to their friend.. might have to make a second one to stop the arguing haha

Best get back to making some more card & helping my daughter with her Olympics project.

Just a note!

Well this card covers a few challenges, I made it with sketch 15 from Friday Sketchers, with Caarvarks "music" theme in mind, then while I was blog surfing, I saw that at Rainbow Ladys , her theme is Music too.

I contemplated what I would use this cute little guy for, for ages & then it was just perfect for these challenges.

Hope you find him cute too!

Always remember ... I love you

I love Kazans sketch 7 at 2Sketches4You, I made this card with it. I love this flower ribbon!!

Hope you have a great weekend

Hugs & kisses

I made this little mushroom on the scallop circle ages ago but it didn't suit the card I was making at the time, so I put it aside for another day, well I saw it sitting there today & just had to use it. At sketch Saturday they have a fun sketch happening, so I used that to make this card.

Hope you like it

Butterfly card

at 4x4 Fridays they wanted us to create a 4×4 with a handmade background, I made this card for my sister, her fav colour is orange & she loves butterflies. I stamped butterflies on the plain paper & doodled with white gel pen around the border, the butterfly is an iron transfer & I used kindy glitz to sparkle it up a bit, not that you can see it really, but it's there :) I used a couple of buttons & some word ribbon to decorate.

Have a great night

Postage Tag

at Weekend Taggers the theme is faux postage. So I made this tag, which I love btw!! It turned out so cute. I might have to give it to my niece when she goes on her travels.

Thanks for dropping by

A couple of challenges

I made this card with the sketch from friday sketchers, although I wasn't really that happy with it in the end...

Then I made this card using a stamp that I received in a swap & I used the sketch I had on my pad, but had forgotten to write which challenge it was for, it turns out it was aPenny Black Saturday sketch, so I appologise if it is not a PB stamp. But i really thought it looks cute

Laura has put out another fun sketch at
2 Sketches 4 You, I made this Get Well card using it

And at Lots to do Challenges the theme is Oriental & I must say this is the first oriental card I have made

Thanks for stopping by

Christmas Train

At the BBTB site Regina set the challenge to use the Train from the New Arrivals Cricut Cartridge, I'm a bit late, I made it last week but was so busy, I've only just gotten the time to upload it, but anyway it was fun... my daughter & I sang christmas carols while I made it haha a bit crazy but we had fun :)

Thanks for stopping by

Watercolour painted rose

I was looking through a cards magazine & saw this picture of a stamp & I really liked it, but I didn't have it, so I thought I would try & replicate it with my watercolour pencils & my water brush.

Here is the image that was in the mag

& this is my watercolour brush (if you haven't seen one before & didn't know what I was talking about)

I was very happy with how it turned out, so I made a card with it.

I don't have the corner punch either so I just used my circle template & took off the edges.

Hope you like it

Vintage - Baby

OK so I'm not sure how "Vintage" this is but at Arty Girlz Challenge Blog, they asked for a vintage creation. I made an ATC so its only small. I had these bronzed like baby embellishments, so I thought they were vintage... (well it sounded good in my head lol) & I cut a baby outfit with my Cricut in a washed out green colour,inked it & used white gel pen on the flower, then popped some lace behind it & there it is :)

(I put 2 photo's of it, I thought it could be seen better by putting pink behind it)

Thanks for the fun

My best friend

This card was made for my daughter to give to her best friend & I used the sketch at Papertake Weekly Challenge & with the theme at Cute Catd Thursday: 'The two of us'

Have a great day

Celebrations - Funky Fairys

Celebrations are all the buzz at Funky Fairys Blog, I made this card that could be used for a wedding or engagement. It is also a shaker card, there is large glitter bits in the window.
