Truly Scrumptious Challenge #1

I came across this challenge on my blog hopping and really liked the sketch, so thought I would give it a go. (that's 3 challenges this week now!) I'm on a roll!

I have used one of my new WOJ stamps, 'Willow with flowers' which is gorgeous and I think I'll be using it alot. The image is coloured with watercolour pencils and the papers are 'two scoops' from Basic Grey - one of my faves and everything else is from my stash.
Thank you for looking, off to enter in the challenge now.

Forever Friends Challenge - Black and White

Two challenges in one week! I haven't done that for a while. This one is the Forever Friends challenge where the theme this week is Black and White.

I used DCWV papers and 3d'd the bear, although it doesn't show up very well in the photo.
Thanks for looking.

Colour Create Challenge #4

Yay!! Finally, I have a card to enter in the Colour Create Challenge. I was determined to get one made this week as I have missed all the others : ( The colours to use this week are Pink and Grey, which is one of my fave combinations. The extra option this week was 'cute and cuddly'. This is as cute and cuddly as I could find, but I think she is cute.

I used the 'Pink Toes' stamp from Penny Black and the papers are Pink Petticoat.
I'm really pleased with the result, so am off to enter it in the challenge now.
Thanks for looking

Just remembered this one!

I made this card for Carrieanne on the DC site as part of the February Friendship swap.

I forgot all about it until I photographed a footie card I made for my daughter and saw the pics on my camera! I do like it though, hope you do too.
Thanks for looking.

One card - no photo!

Hello again, I hope you all had a lovely Valentines Day with lots of lovely treats. I can't believe it's nearly 2 weeks since I last posted! I haven't made that many cards either this week to be honest and the one I did make I forgot to photograph before I delivered it! I have done a bit of blog-hopping this week though and seen lots of wonderful creations - you are such a talented bunch!
I hope to get some cards made this week and enter some challenges and hopefully will get my SIL to photograph the card I made for her to give her friend for her 60th birthday so I can post it on here.
Thanks for stopping by

PB Saturday Challenge

Well, the snow is still falling here and although it looks beautiful, there is no chance of me getting out today, so I'm in my craft room all day (YAY!) and this is what I have made so far.

The Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week is to make a Circle card or anything circle, so I have made this tag using the Penny Black 'Hearts Away' stamp, which I have coloured using watercolour pencils. The DT creations are fab as usual and you can see them here.

Thank you for looking, Michele xx
