Kitchen Sorted and some challenges too!

Hi everyone haven't posted been blogging for a few days as haven't felt very well in myself, doctor said I am having panic attacks. All I know is they are awful feel like I can't breathe its really scary! So anyway thought today would get up and clean all kitchen cupboards and have a good sort out, managed to pass some stuff I was going to throw out to younger daughter who is going back to University soon and she is  moving in to her own rented house so she has had some baking tins, blender etc, better than throwing them into the bin. So have actually finished a few cards off today and have posted them below. Tried to keep them pretty simple this week and what I have done I have enjoyed doing.
This is my first card for today and its for Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which was Xmas is Coming. So I have used this cute Penny Black image of little girl on her swing hanging from the branch of Xmas Tree and I have kept my colour theme to blues mainly. Used blue and silver card to mat and layer and some designer paper with Jingle Bells on, kept it quite simple and just added a sentiment saying Merry Christmas but can't see it very well I am afraid due to the flash on the camera.
This is my card for Cute Card Thursday which was clean and simple, so I have used a stamped image of a village green and used my Pro-markers to colour my image in. I have used some designer paper and mirri board to mat and layer my image. Just added a simple sentiment and little bow to finish it off . Not too fussy and just a nice little note card to send to a friend.
Well this is my card for the Lili of the Valley challenge this week and I have used some old Lili of the Valley papers and decoupage I found in my stash, I know they are old but they make such pretty thank you cards and easy to make too and knew they would come in useful sometime! So I picked the red and  green set for my card  and layered it onto red card hope you like it . Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to look at my creations . Hugs Arlinex

HI sweetie your card is lovely but as it doesnt have a Lili of the Valley image on it cannot be entered in to our draw, but the good news is it runs until the end of the month so you have time to join us again, hugs pops x
