2 Challenges, 2 Cards

(****Please scroll down for the Challenges****)

Hi everyone, phew I find myself all alone today! great! and what better way to spend my time and craft, I was supposed to make christmas cards ooops! lol. Had a go on me maracas, my neighbour is not impressed and kept banging the floor for me to stop, now it was middle of the day, and I didnt have the sound loud, so whats his problem GRRRR!
I have to now start thinking about my daughters First Holy Communion invites, the day is booked for the 6th June, my bros 21st, So I am thinking eeeek, Maybe would could combine a party or something if my bro comes back from uni?! hmmmm shall have to talk to mum.My mum is making her dress I cannot wait! and we have to go to classes every saturday morning from January until June! I have a few ideas so need to do a few proto types and pick which one, I do hate repeative work with a passion so I am thinking simple! lol.

Cupcake Craft Challenge
http://cupcakecraftchallenges.blogspot.com/ This challenge is new to me, and I thought I would have ago this week, although I think I have added one too many layers in my card,but I think you can still see the original sketch. The challenge was to follow the sketch and to use brown, and to have one scalloped edge.I used chef Hamish aint he just the cutest little man!, I coloured him with promarkers and added a bit of glitter to his cheeks, I used plain cardstock for the blues and browns, and the spotty paper is frm dcwv nanas kids, and the cream colour from a basic grey pad.The letters are sizzlitts and I added a little cookery charm with a brad. I hope its ok and you like.

Friday Sketchers

http://fridaysketchersblog.blogspot.com/ This week there is a sketch which fits a dl card, rather than my trad squares. I am not quite sure why I went so bright although piccy doesnt show that much.The paper is from nanas kids, and some cardstock from a matstack. I rubbed stazon around the edges of the plain cardstock, the letters are sizzlitt, I added a flower and button, The image is coloured with aqua pencils, whispers pens and the sea a twink.


Another fave stamp of mine, I just love it. I missed the wavy element of the sketch as no matter how many times I cut it, it looked awful, I must buy a wavy line template is there one?lol. So I used ribbon in its place I hope that is ok. I hope you like.

Thanks for Looking.x
