Morning ladeis I have got up at 6.15 to make this long, long, post. LOL. I hope I don't bore you but I have 5 cards for challenges and 3 awards that I have been given from my fellow friends which I needed to roll the red carpet out for....LOL
1st I have a challenge for Fabs Big Christmas Challenge which was to be square and cute, I used my daisy and dandelion new Xmas Stamps and paper from my stash, hope you like it, I am getting a great collection of xmas cards, which is a good feeling, as about this time off year I start to panic.....
2nd I have a card for the Cupcake challenge #50 which was to use, Green, Pink, Brown, and Add Animals and flowers, I used my Daisy and Dandelion stamps again, I have not used these yet and thought that the bear would cover "animals"
3rd I have an ATC for Tilda and Friends, who this week wanted an ATC in Black, White and Grey, I found this very hard to do this, but used my new Magnolia Rock Star stamp, I hope you like it....
4th and lastly for now is the one for the ABC Challenge, which was the letter "Y" for "yellow" I used this stamp image which was sent to me by a friend over at docrafts, I am sorry but I don't know the name, If anyone knows it I would appreciate knowing. Yellow was a hard colour to do, as I prefer Pinks and Browns, but I quite like the result.
Last but not least I have the card for Promarkers challenge this week was to use Pastel Pink and Cool Aqua, I used a Magnolia stamp that I just got this week from ebay, I think it is an older one, but I love it and may even use if for Xmas, there was also a sketch by Maria to follow, so out came the punches to make a fancy border.....
Now ladies onto the Award Cermony
