Cute card Thursday and A spoonful of sugar

Finally I have got round to putting a card up. Although I am pushing it a bit for the challenge over at A spoonful of sugar. They give you 3 weeks and I still nearly miss it. For my card I have used the sketch from Cute card Thursday. The papers are a download from Sweet Shoppe Designs - there's a surprise eh. The donkey is from Stampavie, designed especially for Michelle, and yes, the card is to send to Michelle. I don't know her, but love to visit her blog and see her wonderful cards and photos of her animals. I'm guessing you all know about her accident, so wont go into it. Anyway, back to the card. I punched out the flowers and the ticket is a stamp from Whimsy stamps. And I have added a few craftwork card thingies - you know them brad like thingies. And I had better go and try and upload this, before I miss the challenge completely.

Cute card Thursday #119

The challenge over at Cute Card Thursday is Lets get Fruity. So, as I am not getting in much crafting lately, thought I would get these tags for my Mums fruit chutney she made. Only another 11 to make. Mum retired and decided to make some chutney for everyone at work. Me being smart said - I'll make some tags to go with them. So I had printed out the name - only it should read March 2010 - shh I wont tell if you wont. But hey - this challenge is making me get started. So as my Dad is into his photography, we had to set it up properly. But hey - I kinda like it. But no, don't expect to see all the photos like that.

And a closer up of the tag. The papers are a download from Sweet Shoppe designs, as is the apple circle. I went over it with glossy accents and added a bit of red gingham and tied it to the jar with some raffia.
