A mild monster

This card is for Sketch and Stash challenge 6, with this template:
I've used BG archaic papers and have added a monster (albeit a very mild, friendly looking one), so that the card is also good for challenge 32 'monsters' on Cupcake Craft.
The idea on Sketch and Stash is to use either new or neglected stash. The dinosaur that I've used was one on a sheet of springy creatures that I bought ages ago from Poundland and haven't used.
I took the photo from an angle partly so that there wouldn't be flash glare, but also so that it showed the 'springy' head of the dinosaur.

Another Easter sketch

This Easter card is for challenge 7 on The Pink Elephant. This is the supplied sketch:

Once again, PM papers, with the background cuttlebug embossed and the addition of Poundland shaker sticker and some gems.

Photo taken at an angle to avoid glare and to show the embossing.

Sketch for Easter

This card is for the sketch this week on Caardvarks and is the opportunity to make another Easter card.

I've been asked to take my cards along to the Women's Evening Fellowship at church this coming Friday (as an extension of my selling to raise money for Tearfund), so I need to make some more Easter cards, although I don't know whether people will have bought all their's by then.

The papers are Papermania and the 'shaker' chick is Poundland. I know this is a 'busy' card, but I know that there are some people who like to buy this kind of card, particularly if sending to a family with children. My stock prior to this mainly consists of quite simple cards with a cross on.

As there are chicks on this card, I'm linking for DCM this week: bunnies and chicks (I'll be back later with bunnies!).

365 cards day 29: Super Sketchy Sunday - Oriental

This is the sketch provided today on 365:

I decided to make an oriental card, which fits the challenge on Mixed Media Monday this week.

Most of the papers are DCWV Far East, except the more turquoise square which was a card blank from PDA that I cut up. The circles were cut on my cricut.

I enjoyed making this card, but can't believe how long it took me - it looks such a simple card, but by the time I'd cut the circles and worked it all out ... (I did change my mind on papers a few times).

As quite a few people have commented on the 'coins', I thought I'd add this to confirm that, yes, they really are coins.
