2 Cards, 3 Challenges

Hi again, I have been playing in my space away from hubby who has his xbox back AGAIN after a 2nd time of fixing and between that and him flipping the channel to see sky sports news for the last day of football transfers is driving me nuts, so I put me headies on and left him to it lol.


This card is for both the above challenges, Basic Grey has the most awesome sketch to follow I really enjoyed using this sketch, and Daring Cardmakers is to use 3 different design papers on your card, I used 3 but only made 2 diff companies rather than the bonus 3. Heres the card:-
I coloured Alva with promarkers and mounted her onto plain cardstock. I used some stripe paper from stamin up and some ribbon, and the other papers are all Basic Grey Infuse, such gorgeous papers and the tones of the pad are right up my street. The greeting is hero arts, and the flowers prima.Thanks for Looking.x

Friday Sketchers

Its been a few weeks since I last took part in a friday sketchers challenge, and this week there is another fabby sketch this time from Carole, the dt cards are gorgeous. Heres mine:-



I love this stamp!, I coloured her with promarkers, and mounted her onto a sizzix frame. I punched the snowflakes and added pearls to their centres and pearl brads to either end, the pink paper is stampin up, the other is basic grey, and I used the swiss dots folder on the top half of the card. Thanks for looking.x

Off on a wee blog hop now. Thanks for stopping by.xxx
