2 cards, 4 challenges

Here are two cards that I've made today for various challenges - the first card has been made using the sketch from Sketch Saturday and the challenge from Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is men/boys, and the second card is a card that I've made for my husband as it's our wedding anniversary tomorrow. I've used the sketch from Cupcake Craft Challenges and the challenge from ABC Challenge which this week is D for Distress - I've used distress inks! Now I've got to rush out...

Forever Friends

Here's a treat bag that I've made for the Forever Friends challenge. This week is "something for a sweet", so I've used some shrinkplastic to make the tag on this gift bag. Also, here's a card made using a new stamp set that I just love! It's called Trendy Trees, from Stampin Up.

Basic Grey challenge - paper piecing

After taking a look at this weeks challenge over on BasicGrey Challenges, I looked at the DT cards, thinking - they've not done any paper piercing, I was a bit confused, until I went back to the title and saw that it said paper "piecing" not piercing!! I had a chuckle to myself, then went off to my craft room. After having a good sort out, came up with this card. I really enjoyed making it - what a great technique, I'm definitely going to have to try this again!!!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge

I've made this card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge which this week is to use brown, cream and purple. I've used a new stamp, and coloured it using distress inks. The purple hasn't shown up in the photo very well, but it's definitely there!!
