Multiple challenges with a purpose...


Hey, bit of a late Saturday evening post. Today I have been busy making OWH cards, finishing off Amy's 18th birthday stuff and mooching around a bit!

I had to make an Anniversary card for friends of mine and decided to combine a couple of cool challenges that I liked this week..

First up is Freshly Made Sketches #111

Love this sketch and the design team cards were very inspiring.

I also loved the colours over at Pals Paper Arts #178 (and Mary Fish is on their DT...I love Mary Fish, she is my craft heroine!)


I didn't quite have Summer Starfruit in my stash, so the greeny colour is a bit darker, but I think it still counts..

I was happy to be able to use another one of my precious Range flowers and my new spotty embossing folder (JT has this set and I have always coveted it). The expresso pearl in the top left corner made me very happy, as I had forgotten I had them! The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp. All the papers are by Kars.

I think my card came out pretty well, simple but effective :)

I managed to sneak in a little Michael's trip after work yesterday - hence the new folders..I was very restrained and bought mainly essentials (card blanks, stuff for my Niece's advent calendar, etc)

Off to eat curry now with Hubby..yums!
