All my Challenges in One Night

And finally, today at least, my card for Sketch Saturday Challenge which I have made lovely and bright as I am going to send this to my elderly aunt who is in hospital after a fall. The card is covered with this rather psychadelic bright card.and I have taken the colours from this to make up my card and image. I have coloured the H&S image in with my Copiic markers and then matted that onto some blue and then lemon card. Once stuck down I have added some blue ribbon across the bottom and on top of that some lovely bright flower braiding. Then across the top of my image I have used a sentiment from CB range of stamps and once again used some of the Prima range flowers and secured them with bright green brads. And after all that I am now shattered but I want to thank you lovely people for dropping by abd taking the time to visit my blogx

This is my cared for this weeks Penny Black Challenge, which was a sketch. The base card is covered with some dark purple card and then I have added some of this lovely bright striped paper with lots of lovely colours on it. Then I have taken another purple strip and added another strip of the striped paper on to that and added it to the bottom of the card. The middle of the card is a pale piece of lemon card and I have added some fake stitching to this then I have added another circle of purple card onto that and then my image which is this cute image of a cat chasing butterflies, which I have coloured in using my Copiic marker pens. My sentiement is matted onto a small piece of purple card, then the flowers have been added with buttons and to finish it off some lovely Kanban gems.

Here is my take on this weeks Friday Sketchers Challenge. The bottom of the card is covered with black card and then onto that I have added some lovely black patterned paper, then the strips on the card are taken from a similar patterned paper but in red . The image I have coloured in with my Whisper pens and doodled some fake stitching around the edge of the image, then I have taken some more of the red paper and layered that with some more black card and stuck the image down onto that. I have then added a black and silver sentiment with red ribbon through my tag and added a red bow to the top corner to finish it off.

Here is my next creation and that was for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge and the challenge this week was to make a xmas card using an animal. So I have used this cute PB image of the little mouse checking his xmas list for Santa. The base card is covered with some dark blue card and then I have used some of this Merry Christmas board to mat and layer my image and my sentiment and then I have used some gold mirri board under that. On the larger piece of my matted piece I have added some gold ribbon and tied it and added a gold Merry Christmas sentiment to it. Then added some blue silk effect flowers and secured them with some jewel brads.

This is my ATC for the Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge which this week was to use some ribbon string or wire. I have backed my ATC with some green spotty card and then criss crossed the card with some pink dotty ribbon. Then I have used this sweet image if Tilda holding a little Robin Redbreast.

Dotties World- Geometrical!!!!!

Here is my card for this weeks Dotties World Challenge, which was geometrical and it was quite a tough one I thought. Everytime I thought" oh thats a good idea", I made the shape either too small or way too large!!!!!!! So here is my final result and hope it will do. I have used a square card and then used some brown card as my base, then I have used some Dovecraft xmas papers to do my next layer. I have then cut a triangle and a rhombus (what about that then? thats what my teenager daughter doing A-level maths said it is ,so who am I to argue) out of the same brown card I have used for the base of my card, then used some more of the Dovecraft xmas papers to add to my shapes. Then I have coloured my image in with Copiic markers and stuck that down onto a rectangular piece of card and layered that on top of my shapes. I have used some love green glittery ribbon down the side of the card and a xmas sentiment to finish it off, which is also a rectangular shape.

Spoonful of Sugar Challenge

Here is my card for this weeks Spoonful of Sugar Challenge. My base card is lined with pink card and then some lovely stripey paper. Along the top and bottom of my card I have used some lace effect ribbon. My image is a lovely H&S one and I have used my Coppiic markers to colour her in and then cut around the image and mounted her onto some spotty pink card. Then have added some lovely pink braiding just over the edge of the image on top and bottom. Then I have added a rather large flower from Joanna Sheen and a CB sentiment and a tiny white bow to finish it off. Thanks for droping by.
