It takes someone special ...

This is for the sketch for Truly Scrumptious 50:

For Daisy doodles 27 there is a free download sentiment to use as a focal point with red as the main colour -I chose this lovely sentiment. Sentimental Sundays 41 asks for Happy Valentine's day so this is good for that as well. I think it also qualifies for Aud sentiments 21 corny Valentine's day sayings (although I think it's so sweet so it's not that corny).

Papers are BG blush, so I'm linking for Basic Grey 37: all heart and Fiskarettes Monday challenge this week is to make a red Valentine card (just scraping in at the last minute for this one). Crafts and me 23 also called for red to be used, also Do you stack up? 5: red hot, Gingerloft 11: the colour red , By the cute amd girly: red is all around us and Moving along with the times 84.

Craft your days away 13: photo inspiration:

Merry kiss-mouse

For winning challenge 40 on I did it I was able to choose a JLJ digi - I chose this cute 'Merry kiss-mouse image and couldn't wait to use it. I coloured with copics - and make a confession that I went over the edge of the tail and didn't want to bin the card, so I've added the little red bow, which I think looks kind of cute really. Papers are S.e.i Christmas mint and Winter song.

I used the sketch for CPS 204:

I'm putting this on my Craftyhazelnut Christmas Challenge blog as another card for challenge 6. The challenge this week is to use a digi - and it's being sponsored by Shelly's Images. It would be good to see your cards for this challenge - it's never too early to start your Christmas cards - you'll then have a head start on those who are in a panic towards the big day later in the year.

Round and round again

Having been neglected for a while, my cricut is doing a bit of overtime atm.

This is another 'doiley' card from the wild card cartridge, this time for the sketch on Mojo Monday 176:

The basic card is cut from DCWV textured, as is the darker shade insert on the front. The double sided paper is imaginisce twitterpated colorfall. The flowers are a beaded ribbon (lovely and shiny) that I picked up from a market stall a while ago.

The stripes aren't crooked - just the angle of the photo.

Going round in circles again

Last night I made a 'going round in circles' card using a 'doiley' card with my cricut wild card cartridge. Because I wanted to make an insert for the front of the card, I cut out another card, so I had a piece left over, which I've used on this card today. I've added a background paper from the Funky Hand Colour me happy 'blissful baby' CD to match the hearts paper I used for the first card.

So this is another entry for Get Funky 15th challenge: going round in circles. I think this card would be suitable to give a friend, so I'm linking for the CD Sunday challenge: friendship and for Totally papercrafts 52: friendship.

I used sketch 103 on Sweet Sunday sketch (as soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect to use up the cricut cut out):

The ribbon across the bottom and for the 'bow' at the top is a piece that's been in my box for quite some time (no idea where it came from). The bow seemed just right to cover up the flat piece at the top where the card was cut from the cricut 'doiley' card. The flowers are prima that I got as part of a fabby prize (here). Sadly, I've used all of them now, but they have finished this card off nicely.

The card base is stardream so it sparkles.


Of course, as this card has hearts and flowers it's suitable to be used for Valentine's Day or any other 'love' occasion.
