The Sugar Bowl #29

I decided to try and get my card up for the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl. They have a fab sketch by Tiets to follow and also want you to include 3 flowers, 2 brads and 1 button. I have used the 2 brads on the image. The flowers needed something so I used some flat back pearls (is that cheating). I decided to use a Leanne Ellis stamp for this one, and used some freebie MME papers from a magazine. These are so cool, I really don't want to use them. But I managed to at least use a few sheets.

Just for fun

I was asked to make a card for a little girl called Mercedes (I so hope I have spelt her name right), who is going to be two. As I am into the easel cards at the mo, guess what type I made her. I had a row of images out, to start colouring in pink, but this little one from The Greeting Farm won. The paper is from Pink Petticoat and I printed out the text. I used a Sizzix die for her name and age, added some ribbon and buttons and that was me. I don't know if it is what is wanted, but hey - I like it. Do you think it would work if I kept it and changed the name and age to thirty - something. No OK, I wont go there.

Winter Wonderland, CCT

Yay - I'm getting my card for the Winter Wonderland Challenge in before last thing Saturday. No it wont last, but hey - it's a start yeah. Anyway I used a Buzzcraft stamp, which I thought was calling out for a baby Christmas, and the fab sketch. As it was a special Christmas I thought I would make an easel card. These have got to be one of my fave papers at the mo - from Sweet shoppe Designs, by Zoe Pearn. They are Christmas papers, but not just for Christmas - right.

And as the bottom part of the card is spotty, I thought I would enter it into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge which is spots and dots. Running late for that one, but hey - that ones a bonus.

Winter Wonderland Candy cane

I did make a card for last weeks sketch, but never got round to posting it on here. So thought I would put here now to show you all. The papers are Dovecraft and the image is from The Greeting Farm. Have used EK Success border punch and Marta Stewart snowflake punch. Printed out the text.

Running a bit late with this one again. But thought I would chance it anyway. The challenge over at Winter Wonderland is Candy cane red. Use red and white. It doesn't have to have a candy cane image. But I decided to use my Whiff of Joy stamp and go red and white. But I think it might just be a bit too red for me. I think the papers are from Provo craft. The sentiment is a stamp from Popcorn from Crafters Companion.
