I did a couple of challenges tonight but before we get to them I just thought I would share one I made for our weekend workshop - we are doing romantic cards. I thought I would use the relief technique (ooh hold that thought, you with the mucky mind - yes YOU lol xx) I used the Weddings Cricut cartridge and stuck the cut shapes randomly onto the blank card and then just highlighted the inner part of the hearts. Some gorgeous wide ribbon which I got from Creative Pastimes and a few little gems and it was done. I was quite pleased with the result.

And some detail .......

Right, here are the challenge cards. The first one is a Dawny special - its a BOGOF one. You know the one, you buy one you get one free, I say you buy one, you get one free. Now before I continue, who is that ruddy annoying man and WHAT is he wearing!!! Someone should give the people that throw those things at him the sack and employ me cos I would not miss him, that's is for sure!!!! My overseas blog buddies, I fear you may well have no idea what I am rambling on about. Well, all I can say is consider yourselves very lucky that you don't have this advert in your country!!! Meanwhile, back at the blog.... as I was saying, this one is for the Friday Sketchers challenge and also the Tilda challenge which is to use swirls. Paper is PP and the ribbons are Raspberry Ribbons, Poppicrafts and a random bit I found in the bottom of my stash

I am very close to the wire with this one cos it is Spoonful of Sugars challenge and it runs out tomorrow. It is using pink, blue and green. The paper is PP, the ribbons are Poppicrafts plus another randomer, and the little eyelet - brads I have had for so long that I dont know who makes them, sorry.
