All on my ownsome and Bread Mouldy!!!!!!!!

This is my first card this afternoon and its for Sketch Saturday. Again another lovely sketch to use for the card. I have used a LOTV image of the two girls having tea using Pro-markers to colour them in. My base is some gingham paper and then using stripes to co-ordinate. Added some candi dots, a sentiment, some flowers and some blue lace along the top.

Now for a change of tack Allsorts Challenge this week was anything but a card so I have gone mad and made three ATC's used to make lots of these and haven't made them for a while now. So I used some old papers and cut the images out of the paper and decoupaged them and added some lettering from the same papers. I have really enjoyed making these for a change.
This is my next card this week and its for Just Magnolia which was the Holidays so I have done another Christmas card and also for Cupcake Craft challenge which was the sketch I have used and I think it was a nice sketch to use. So here I have used some candy striped paper as my base and then again out of my old paper stash used this Rudolph paper as the complimentary paper. Then I have added my image using Pro-markers to colour her in. Added some candi dots and a sparkly branch(which I purchased at a local craft fair at the weekend they are lush but found the glitter got everywhere) and a couple of flowers to finish it off.
Well here is my final card for today and its a decoupage card from La Pache and I made it into an easel card for a couple of challenges this week. I have used some old stash papers in my box as the base colour, taking it from the colour of the card on the image. I have added a green silk bow onto the front of the easel and some candi dots. The sparkly lights on the trees and the houses I have painstakingly sat and put gem stones on to make it more outstanding, but I can tell you it took me about an hour to do this, but it looks nice when finished. So this card is for Winter Wonderland Challenge which was a Christmas card with lights in it and I would also like to enter it for Bunny Zoe Crafts Monthly Challenge which was to make an easel card. Hope you like it and thanks for dropping by and leaving your lovely comments. Arlinex
