Challenges for the Week

Well afternoon everyone have been having a mega crafting session to do the challenges this weekend as we are having visitors on Monday, so know I will not get a chance to do more crafting  until next weekend when they have returned home. So here is my first card of the weekend and I am going to put it into three challenges, the first Spoonful of Sugar Challenge which was pink and brown, the second was Totally Parecraft Challenge which is girly girls and my third is for Sassy Studio Designs which was to use die cuts. So as you can see lots of pinks and browns and the stamp I have used is new to my local craft shop and she is a Molly Bloom stamp, she's rather cute and very much a girly girl!  I have put her onto a die cut oval and added a sentiment and some flowers to complete the card.

My second card from my crafting weekend is for Lili of the Valley Challenge which was pink and blue and Charisma Cardz Challenge which was to use stars on your card. So I have used this lovely image of the little girl playing mum and used Pro-markers to colour the image in. The stars are on the blue paper I have used. I have used some pretty flowers and brads to embellish my card, a sentiment and a bit of bling on two of the corners.

Well my third card is for Just Magnolia Challenge which was pink purple and pearls,  Dutch Dare Challenge fwhich was to see buttons, brads,bling and a bow, so I have combined these two together. So I loved doing this card as my fave colour is purple yeh. So used a Magnolia image with her little cat, and used Pro-markers to colour her in and then added some pink pearly gems around the die cut. Added a sentiment, some flowers with buttons in the centre, a ribbon with a bow and some buttlerfly brads to complete.
Well this card is my next one and I really had a lot of ideas for this card and its for the  Winter Wonderland Challenge, and that was wet or dry embossing. So I used an image and cut her out after using Copic markers to colour her in then I added her to an silver background which was dry embossed with a Christmas village scene and  then added her to my base card which I had covered with some nice winter colour paper. Next I added some Flower Soft to give a snowy effect on and  the ground and roof tops, and as the falling snow, which also has some gems to give it a bit of bling to the sky. Then I took some blue and white ribbon and twisted it to added to the side of the card and a snowy sentiment to finish.

My next card is of course Penny Black Challenge which was bunting and that was quite a challenge,  I can tell you but after about four attempts I succeeded. So here is those cute little mice under the flower so sweet, I have used Pro- markers this time to colour the image and used soft colours as my background and bunting. I have added Forever Friends ribbon and a sentiment which says Snuggle. Then I have added some lovely flowers picking up the colours from the flower. I will also put this card into Cute Card Thursday which was to use circles and my image is on two die cut circular shapes then I have added some red paper buttons in the corner. 
This card is my card for Papertake Weekly Challenge which was Hot Hot Hot and also for the Sketch Saturday Challenge. So this is my take on the sketch and then I have used a lovely stamp which I think is from the  High Hopes range of two cute insects ( not sure if they are ants or bees!) getting warmed by the fire. I have used mainly hot colours reds, yellows, oranges and pinks. I have added a sentiment and a nice yellow organza bow to the side.
Well this is my last card of the weekend and its my card for Allsorts Challenge which is Free and Easy in July and I am also putting it into Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which is Holidays. So my image is a Rochelle Anne Miller Stamp of this cute little elephant going fishing which I know many people do on their hols especially the men  folk. I have used my copic pens to colour him in, used nice bright summery  flower and striped papers and added some nice bright pink ribbon, a sentiment and a couple of flowers. Thanks to everyone who drops by and looks at my cards and leaving your comments.
