Brown card

This card is for this week's sketch on 2 Sketches 4 You: Kazan's sketch 19:

I've used papers from the unearthed HOTP Cardmaker's Floral pack of papers and stamped with a PM stamp with Brilliance coffee bean; the sentiment is a HOTP stamp. Being brown and incorporating using stamps, this card is right for this week's challenge on Sunday Stamper: brown.

The lace was some I got as part of a group purchase on CBC. Having made a border with this, I'm linking for Theme Thursday challenge: borders.

Once again, the scan is a bit crooked, not the card!

Small World of Inchies & Twinchies: clowns

This is my twinchie for this week's challenge on Small World of Inchies & Twinchies: clowns:

I think I'll use it somehow on a child's card.

"Peace" card

I've now used what I did for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge 'circles', mounted it on card, with the addition of a sentiment:

Apologies that the scan is a bit crooked - the card isn't!

Sunday Postcard art: circles

This is for the 'circles' challenge on Sunday Postcard this week, using a couple of Cuttlebug embossing foldes and a couple of Crafty Individuals miniatures:

Sketch and Colour challenge

For this card I've followed this week's Sketch Saturday 36 (I turned it to the right):

The challenge this week on Magnolia vs Stampavie is a colour challenge using these colours:

The first challenge on JB this month as been set by Bex as a colour challenge, which happens to be pink and green, so this also fits that.
I've used papers and sentiment from a long-neglected pack: HOTP Carmaker's Floral and a Sarah Kay image coloured with copics, with just the addition of one or two pieces of sticky ribbons.

ATCs received

Postie's been (only the second time this week because of the weather). I've received two lots of ATCs from January swaps.

Firstly, 'women' ATCs from Vicki (VeeBee) and Barbara (Crafty Barbie) on CBC:

Secondly, number '9' ATCs from Ellen and Tasha (Chicken Licken) on Tanda:

Thank you, ladies - they are all so beautiful - and thanks, too, to the ladies who hosted the swaps.

Another giraffe

Well, just like the buses - you wait for ages for one to come along and then here comes another! - giraffes, that is!

This time the giraffe is a Sizzix die cut one, using some 'giraffe' print card; Dovecraft papers again. Another one for the Secret Crafter Saturday challenge 17: at the zoo.

The light is so poor that it had to be a flash photo, which, unfortunately, is reflecting on the slightly shiny giraffe.

Tanda Teaser 84 + Secret Crafter 17 + One Stop Craft 14

Wendy's Teaser challenge 84 on Tanda this week is: seeing spots; on the Saturday Challenge 17 on Secret Crafter the topic is 'at the zoo', so I've combined them in this card.

The papers are Dovecraft and the giraffe is a Rubbadubbadoo stamp watercoloured.

I've used tiny buttons in the centres of the primas to make a change from gems or brads, so this is another card for One Stop Craft 14 challenge to use buttons or bows.
