What a day!!!! No, the earth didn't move for us here in Chester - hope it didn't effect too many people!!! I had all these ideas that I wanted to try and for one reason and another (work, Kyla being sent home from Nursery etc) I have only just finished my second card of the night.


I decided that I was going to start having a go at some of the challenges ......



The first one is for the Papertake Weekly challenge, which is 'blue and green should never be seen'. I found some odd bits of paper that I have had literally for years. It's Powder Blue / Mint collection by Printworks Collection Inc and I bought at a craft fair over 3 years ago. I cannot believe I haven't used it as it is really nice paper - how shameful :-( The flower in the centre is from the Woodware Dotty Flowers set, and I used some glitter, a tiny bit of chalk and some of Michelles fabbie brads to finish (Poppicrafts)


The second challenge I've had a go at is over at My PaperWorld - there is a link on here. There is a sketch for you to use and you can create a card based on the sketch. The papers are Pink Petticoat, the stamp is my lovely Maggie stamp (Funky Kits) and there is a bit of glitter and some old buttons from my stash.




I'm off to get some sleep now but hopefully I will have a bit more time tommorrow to do a few more xx
