It'll be all white on the night

This is a card for sketch challenge 41 on the sweetest thing:



Colour Create
30 calls for 'all white' and Penny Black 73 is 'white on white' - and I've used a gorgeous PB stamp, just colouring the back of the music book with orange and the stand and flute with C1 grey copics.

I think the card also fits the bill for day 214 on 365 cards (a bit of a stretch of the sketch there, but I think it's just about recognisable!).

My heart is full of thanks

Pile it on challenge 12 this week is a colour combo: blue, green and yellow (just to explain that the card is definitely yellow - it's been sprayed with 'lettuce' colorwash). The idea of 'pile it on' is that you see how many challenges you can combine with theirs. If you have a peep further down my blog, you'll see that I've done a lot of that already this week!

This card is also for sketch 139 on CPS:



and also for Get Sketchy challenge 12:



With this sketch we were also asked to use spray ink, so I've used Adirondack lettuce colorwash (I tried to use stream, but the nozzle was blocked, which is why there is a different patch of colour - and I decided to leave it).

These sketches are so similar that even one of the DT members went for both of them, so I know it's OK for me to do so.

Stampin' Sisters for Christ challenge 10 this week says: 'Make a card that expresses your thankfulness for someone or something they have done, or that encourages someone to be thankful.' - so this is it! Crafty Creations 39 also has the theme of 'thanksgiving/gratitude'. Gingersnap Random redhead challenge 28 is 'thankfulness' too.

'Thank you' seems to be a common theme atm because it's also challenge 22 on My Grafico - and to include dry embossing - mine was done with d'vine swirls cuttlebug folder.

Day 145 on 365 cards was an 'ad inspired' challenge with a picture supplied (you can see it if you click on the link) - I was inspired by the colours and also the butterflies. And talking of butterflies, this is another link for Flutter by Wednesday 81. It's also another one for My time to craft 83: 'rip it up'.

After all that, here is my card (which looks more 'busy' on here than irl for some reason!):

In my thoughts

This card is for sketch 65 on Cutie Sunday this week:



I've used red paper, sentiment (both HOTP), a square image and three buttons, the ingredients for the recipe this week on 2 red bananas.

It's also one for 'kind thoughts' Tanda Teaser 121.

It's fall y'all

The challenge on Stamptacular this week (it's just still this week - last minute one) is 'it's fall y'all' - use fall colours and stamping.

I used an orange base card, I can't identify this brown paper (it's been in my box for a long while, unknown), Dovecraft ribbon and the ATC that I made for the October swap on BF. The idea is that we make an ATC for everyone in the swap, which means we also get one of our own back, so I decided to use it on this card. There is stamping on the ATC - you can see my original post about it here.
