A couple of cards to share

Afternoon, my dear friends, this week I made a couple of cards that were NOT for DT work, yipee, so must be catching up...Today is Brian's birthday, he is golfing at the minute, but I am going to take him out for tea, then maybe take in a Movie...would like to see Lincoln but not sure if it is still on...we will see..will let you know tomorrow.


So onto the cards:- The 1st one is for Lacy Sunshine,  CH2 Favourite Colour Combo, if I am honest I have a few favourites, but felt that after the long winter months, we needed something cheery, so I have went with Pink/Lime Green, they are zesty and cheer me up...I have used on of the images that were in the $1 sale called Blossom Lineart, I am never sure if I was a Goth or a Gypsy in my former life, LOL, but this image appealed to me somewhat and she was great fun to colour, hope you agree that the Pink/Lime Green combo, suits her.... I am going to enter this card into a couple of other challenges...Whoopsi Daisy - Make it Girly, and Oldie But a Goodie Challenge - Bright Colours (where you have to use something, you have had for at least 6 months and say what, well it is the papers, that were free in a Magazine, I know not, when, but I did use some off them for an Easter Card, last year)...


The 2nd card is entered into Sugary Sunday WK54 - on Facebook - where there was a colour combo to follow, I have used Daisy, whom, I just love.  I am entering her into the Sugar Bowl - 100 Challenge, Anything Goes with a Sugar Nellie image, also entering her into One Stitch at a Time - CH151 - Make it Girly....

Have a wonderful Saturday all, many thanks for stopping by and join me tomorrow for the new challenge at Glitter N Sparkle....love and hugs to ALL xxxxx

absolutely stunning - both of them.

seems like the european girls prefer 5x5 or 6x6 cards. us USA girls are hoarders - not to mention postage is a bitch!

have a great weekend.

hugs :)
