Back with a few cards!

Hi everyone! I finally motivated myself into doing a few cards, and I actually enjoyed it! So maybe it's not quite time to give up just yet? Perish the thought! I'm gonna make this post short and sweet as I have an early start and late finish tomorrow (I hate early starts!!!).

The first card is for Friday Sketchers blog, this week's sketch was by Murmur of France, a nice sketch to work with...

The image is from the Penny Black 2009 collection, it's called "sun dried". Coloured with brush markers, papers are from my stash so sorry I don't have a clue who they're made by. The sentiment is embossed using the Cuttlebug "Friend" folder.

The second card is for the Stamp Something "Favourite Somethings" challenge, as my favourite bear as a little girl (other than Care Bears) was Paddington...

The image was from a free stamp on a craft mag last year (can't remember which one - sorry), coloured with w/c paints. Papers are from Basic Grey Cupcake collection, ribbon is from Hubbihobby and sentiment from Clare Curd's Signature Range. The little paws are stamped using a stamp from Tanda Stamps.

The third and final card is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, this week it's a 3,2,1 recipe...

Three brads, two ribbons, one flower. Brads, ribbon and papers are from Papermania, ribbon is from Dovecraft. Embossing done on Cuttlebug using "swirls" folder. The image (which I think is so cute) is called "Rainin' daisies" from Penny Black. Sentiment is again from Clare Curd's Range.

Well that's it for tonight as off to bed now to get a decent night's sleep! Nighty night!

Hi Shelly, I'm in the same state as u at the mo. Can't get motivated to do cards, I think is a mix of work, tired and kids. I'm off work tomorrow so hopefully might get something done. You have been busy though and have made some great looking cards. I really must have a go at stamping on acetate- yours looks fab.
speak soon
