Paper Take weekly Challenge 'Dawnys sketch #1'

Paper take weekly Challenge,
is to use the sketch below.
I did a close up of this cute little hedghog,
to show the detail in the parcel.
This is a PB stamp, the dots on the paper were coloured
in with glitter gel pen.
Below is the complete card.
I do hope you like my take on such an unusual sketch.

Again I have left a sentiment off, so it will be a useful card in my collection.

Thank you for taking time to look.

The other challenge is for Saturday Sketches Challenge.
Sketch #22

The only thing I havent done is add a sentiment.

any reason.

Recently in magazine.

I was recently in Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine,
all about our recent crafty buys.
I had bought some Arty Farty Templates
and wrote about those.
Here I am pictured with my children on our
summer holiday.
A couple of days ago I was lucky to get my wonderful gift
for being in the feature!
Below is a picture of my lovely goodies
23, 12 x 12 papers and 6 sheets of matching
I got some lovely fairy pages and stickers,
just what I love and great to use for my daughter.
I had also bought some items through Ebay for carfting,
the seller contacted me saying they had just read about me
in the magazine... I said yes that was me.
The feedback I got made me smile,
wonderful to deal with an almost famous person!!!
FAME at last ;-)

Two Challenges One Card....

I have done this card for two different Challenges,
Paper Take Weekly 'Frightful but Delightful'
Spoon full of Sugar
Challenge # 22 Halloween
I have used this style of layout before,
it looked so nice I had to try it again.
This little stamp is a sugar nellie halloween one.
A cute cat outfit, just right for that trick or treat.
I used blue to match the colour of the bow I had done around her neck.
I was also lucky to find the cobweb peeloff stickers in my stash!

My time to craft Challenge # 33 doodling

This is my first go at making this style of card,
and to have a go at a challenge on
'My time to Craft Challenge blog'
This is #33 DOODLING.
I doodled all the swirl pattern on both sheets of card,
so that I got a matching look.

I was passed on the instructions for a pryamid card
by a friend of mine.
I have really enjoyed having a play making these.
You can find the instructions Stamp owl
I hope you all like this card,
I added a sweet Sugar nellie image, and a silk flower.

Lily of the Valley 321 challenge # 4

Lily of the Valley Challenge 4
We would like you to use 3 papers,
2 ribbons and 1 button or 1 brad
on your creations this week.
Well here is my card for this Challenge.
I have been a big fan of lili of the valley things,
check out all my Christmas cards below.

Saturday Sketcher Challenge # 20

This is my First ever go at doing a sketch for this
This is #20Here is my card,
Im not so sure about this effort.
I would love your feedback

A spoon full of sugar Challenge # 21 Lims Sketch

The Challenge on A Spoon full of Sugar # 21
is to use the sketch below designed by Lim.
I wanted to do something a little bit of fun,
and with Halloween on its way I thought 'Why Not!'
I do hope you all like my take on your sketch.

Tilda and Co Challenge # 40

I haven't had much time to do many Challenge's,
So here is on of my first for a very long time!
Tilda and Co Challenge # 40 asked you to use this sketch.
Well here is my take on it,
I doodled the leaf and berry pattern onto the main card,
to match the small amount of paper I have used on the card.

For some reason my layering went off to one side!

But I still consider it quite a good card,

I would love to know what you think about it.

The final batch of christmas cards!

I don't know if you have noticed the trend to make larger cards,
all of these are A4 cards with envelopes.
I bought a pack of mixed coloured cards,
not realising there was a black one included.
So I added Purple to it, which I think makes a stunning
Christmas card.
Again though I have used the images from
Lili of the Valley,
they look great as the centre design of my finished cards.
Below a green style, still very much Christmas theme.

I also used the Dufex foiled greetings for these cards,
I wanted them to stand out from the cards.

Both of these two the more traditional RED for Christmas.
I think they both look great.

And my final A4 card, Yellow!
Great bright colour for Christmas.
Something totally different.
