A few Challenge cards..

I have had a fairly quiet day today, so thought I would have a play with a few challenges.

Here are the ones I've managed to get done. I hope you like them.

This is the first card, which fits in with the challenges below:

Cute Card Thursday

Challenge 47

We would love to see your creations with a music or dance theme this week. Think instruments, song titles, dancing, musical notes etc. I can't wait to see what you all come up with - have fun!!

Daring Card Makers
Jozza has set the challenge this week - The dare is feeling green. I want to see lots of green on your cards in any shade you like.

After blog hopping this morning, I remembered that I too had bought some of these Smirk characters for my neice's birthday card. So, here she is in all her glory.. all decoupaged and completed. I did trim around the decoupage though, because I didn't like the edges all that much. I think Docrafts definately has the quality on their decoupage sheets, well, compared to these Trimcraft ones anyway..

Now, onto card number two -

I used the scrap pile I've accumlated over the years to delve deep and find papers to match the image. This fits in with the challenge over on Rosie Dee's Challenge , SCSC and also Papertake Weekly
Week 21 - Rosie's Challenge

Hello again from a very snowy north Northamptonshire. Wow, have we had some snow!!! If you've had some too then we hope you've stayed warm and safe.
My challenge this week is to use up some scraps. I, for one, are in a real scrap splurge kind of mood at the mo, so I want to see what you can make with yours.

SCSC - Week 18

Recycle Something....

Papertake Weekly
Dawnys Sketch #8

Hi all, hope this week finds you all well and that everyone is coping ok with the bad weather! Thanks to everyone who joined in last week!
Well, this weeks challenge is one of Dawnys fab sketches:

And... it also fits in with this one.. lol.

Our Challenge this week is

Doodle Doo
We would love to see some doodling on your cards. This could be hand drawn or if you have scrolls and swirl stamps you can also use these.

This pretty girl is a stamp I got way before Christmas, and although she's been stamped a few times, I've never got around to colouring any. I coloured lots of images yesterday whilst AOL was offline, so today I decided to place her on this card. Here's a close up of the colouring.

Now, isn't she one cute little stamp? I stamped her with permanent ink and coloured her with prismas and whispers pens.


  1. Lovely cards Jo and I love the doodling
