A Couple of Cards

Afternoon everyone, hope you're all enjoying the weekend and having a restful Sunday.

Wow I can't believe I haven't joined in any challenges for over 4 weeks now.... only having the time to do DT cards.....which I'll be back with later of my last addition to Poppicrafts.....

So last night I sat down and thought I'd have a go at a couple of challenges:

I really should make more time to join in these challenges, I really do love these gorgeous stamps and they DT always provide such fabulous work. Anyway this week they have a fabulous sketch, which I had so much fun with ~ thanks girls.....

Oh I love this little Henry ~ isn't he a cutie.... and this card I made for someone very special who's birthday is coming up soon.

And here's the inside & back

Papers: Dreamland Flowers
Image: WOJ ~ Henry Party Mouse
Mediums: Pro Markers
Sentiment: WOJ & SU
Supplies: Flowers, spacers, brads ~ Poppicrafts, Ribbons ~ Stash


This is the first time I've joined this fabulous challenge ~ and this week they have a gorgeous receipe for everyone. And a gorgeous prize for one lucky winner..... why not pop over and take a peek.
2 ~ Papers
1 ~ Button
3 ~ Brads
1 ~ Ribbon/Bow

The papers are 2 designs of the Scarlet Letter range ~ oh I just love these papers and thought they would be perfect for a Valentines card for my OH. The buttons and brads are all Basic Grey ~ just not sure which range (sorry) !!! The red ribbon is from my stash, but the red fibre is BG ~ Figgy.

I also decorated the inside of this one too.....

The sentiment on the front and inside is from Pink Petticoat ~ Old Fashioned Girl

And here's the back

Papers: Basic Grey ~ Scarlets Letter
Images/Sentiments: Pink Petticoat ~ Old Fashioned Girl & SU
Supplies: Velvet Ribbon, Flowers ~ Poppicrafts; Brads, Buttons, Fibre ~ Basic Grey
Tools: Nestabilities ~ Labels 2

Have a great everyone
