Rose postcard

This large 'rose postcard' stamp by Stamps Happen is one of my favourites, so I'm linking this for Cutie Sunday 133: use your favourite stamp. And Order of the opus gluei 92: 'goin' postal - asks for postcards, so this is just right for that challenge.

It is the size of a 6 x 4 card. I coloured with copics and distressed the edges with old paper DI.

It's also for:

Corrosive 105: distressing
PaperPlay 9: shabby chic/vintage
Simply create 38: power of flowers
Polka doodles 9: flower power
Wild orchid 18: anything goes
Papertake weekly: anything goes

A touch of pink

This card is for CPS 207:

I used three block patterns Personal impressions stamps and just coloured tiny bits with a copic.

This colour combo is definitely one of my favourites.

I've used a piece of shimmery ribbon or Simplicity one layer Wednesday 43: shimmer. The ribbon is also for Pear tree 38: ribbon.

This is also for:

The play date cafe 71: colour splash player's choice - black and white with a limited use of colour
One stop craft 121: black, white and one other colour
Alphabet: R for ribbons
Wild orchid 18: anything goes
Papertake weekly: anything goes

Ewe are one of a kind

Having said I was making a resolution to join in th 365 challenges, I thought I'd better get on with them as I've only done one so far this week, so this is for day 4 'one of a kind'.

The card is based on the Sweet Sunday sketch for challenge 106:

I kept the card to black and white, using up some pieces of DCWV that I've had for ages and ages. The stamped image is Stampabilities 'lullaby lamb' and the Ewe was stamped with some lettering that I've had for ages - the rest of the sentiment was printed on my dymo letratag. With just the addition of a few pearl gems and a little flower and the card was finished.

The black and white combo is for:

The lollipop ladies 15: ba-humbugs - black and white with stripes
Craft your days away 15: black & white


This is also for:

Whoopsi Daisy: let's get all cute
Creative belli 112: animals
Meljen 48: U R such an animal
Charisma cardz 9: four legged friends
Sarah Hurley 32: four legged friends

Wild orchid 18: anything goes
Papertake weekly: anything goes + optional: something old (the papers and the alphabet stamps)
