A Challenge or 2 xx

Well that's another weekend gone!!!! Why do they go so quickly??

I managed to get a couple of challenge cards done yesterday, both using sketches (aren't they a life saver sometimes!!)

This one is my card for Sketch Saturday. It is my great nephew Haydn's first Christmas so I thought this would be nice for him. I used the new PP download, Sweet Cheeks, which I really love, and the papers are both PP. The ribbon is Poppicrafts and I coloured it with PMs and highlighted it with Glamour Dust ( you know, the usual lol xxxx). This pic doesn't really do justice to the gorgeous green washed paper which is from One in A Melon. I love it xxNow I have to say that I am not 100% with this card. It's my first WOJ challenge card based on a gorgeous sketch but I faffed about with it too much and ended up not sure about it. Anyway, the image is a RAK (thanks Jill xxx) coloured with PMs, the papers are all PP (Tis The Season), beautiful blooms are Poppicrafts and the little bells I got last year from Creative Pastimes (hi girls xxx).

And not a MSBP in sight!!!!
I'm giving it a few days off for good behaviour lol xxx

I am hoping that the mojo is starting to return cos it has been soooo hard in recent weeks. But I suppose it can't be turned on and off like a tap. When you get into that sort of creative zone thing, you just have to go with it. But I think it's also good to give it a bit of a rest occasionally.

Oh btw, has anyone received their Christmas Magnolias yet? This is the first time I pre-ordered and having read some worrying things on other people's blogs re them not turning up and then they won't reply to your e-mails etc, I am a little bit concerned. Call me Paranoid Pam, but I just thought I would check.

Have a great week xxxx

Lovely cards, do love the colours of the first one. I've received 3 stamp clubs from Magnolia and fingers crossed they appear about a week after showing up on credit card.

Gorgeous cards Dawny as ever xx
By the way I rang Magnolia on Friday because you are right, they never reply to e-mails. They are in the process of sending out the Stamp Club stamps this week, and hope to have them all out by the end of the week, but maybe a little longer!!!!!!!! You will know when they have sent them out to you as your card will get debited at the time - hope this helps xxxx
