A couple of Challenges

Hi everyone, oh my since I last posted this morning I have had one lazy day, I seem to have got addicted to a little computer game similiar to tetris but with coloured balls, so went to make a card at 2.30 ooops what a wasted day, still in me pj's!!!! dont tell anyone hehe, off for a bath shortly.

I made a card for the Friday Sketchers Challenge, I have sat many times to try and do this sketch and there was something about it, not sure what that I just seemed to struggle with,so this was my final attempt at giving the sketch a go so I hope this one is ok I quite like it, its slightly tweaked to fit the square card.
I coloured the image with promarkers and inked around all edges of cardstock. The panels behind I used the swiss dots folder on and some snowflake eyelets with white organza ribbon. I punched some snowflakes for the bottom corner, the flowers I tried to do something a little different with them I like them I think, I put eyelets in the centres and threaded the organza through them.Thanks for Looking.x

I also made a card for the Christmas and Birthday Challenge I have only made one this week.I coloured the image with promarkers, ran the two strips through the tiny bubbles folder and inked the edges. The greeting is pb and I added some ribbon and flowers. Thanks for Looking.x

I have done the insides but didnt want to put too much on this post, heres another card not for any challenges the camera hasnt picked up the colours perfectly and whatever look I was after I dont think I achieved I am just not sure about it but I do like the flower arrangement lol.

Thanks for Looking.xI also recieved another award today wow! A huge thanks to Teresa :o) Have a peek at Teresa's Blog you will find some lovely stuff over there! This award is called the Marie Antoinette and is to be passed on to 7 people, let them know and link them on your blog, as I recieved some this morning and passed them on I hope its ok if I offer this to those who have commented on my blog today :O) thankyou. Thanks again Teresa hun.x

Thanks for stopping by.x
