Carol singers

This is another card for Daring cardmakers challenge 'the house that Jack built'.

I've used up some of the rest of the red patterned card that I used for the previous card, so this is another quick pop into the playground at Pixie's crafty snippets 31 and Squiggle stamps: stash attack - used an offcut.

The house that Jack built for Christmas

'The house that Jack built' is this week's Daring cardmakers challenge so I've used the sketch for Sketches by Carly 61 to make this Christmas card, using Hunkydory supplies:

Simply less is more

This is a card for any occasion, using the sketch for Less is more 78 (I turned the sketch upside down):


I used a scrap of pink paper to make the butterfly border with a Martha Stewart punch, with the addition of some stitched ribbon and sticky flower ribbons.

Clean and simple blue and green

This is for the CAS sketch for Annabelle absc052 (I turned the sketch upside down):


Why is it that such a simple card took me three attempts?!

I've used some stitched ribbon and some flowers that have been in my stash for ages and ages.
