Miss you

This card is based on Kazan's sketch 26 on this week's 2 Sketches 4 you challenge:

The lovely dog image is one that I received in my swap RAK from CBC.

I'm linking for this week's Copic Colour challenge 12, which is to use RO2, E33 and E57 (I didn't have E57, so I substituted E37).

The 'dogs' paper is from PDA and the torn card at the top is Core'dinations. As I tore the edge of this, it's good for 'J is for jagged edge' on ABC challenge (one that I missed).

Day 59 on 365 was 'miss you', so this card is also for that.

And, lastly, the challenge this week on Papertake Weekly is 'animal antics', so this fits that.

Simply leafy

A simple card - no patterned paper, just a piece of 'Happy Birthday' vellum over a piece of DCWV textured card, with the additional of a few flowers and leaves - the leave were among the die cuts that I received in the swap RAK - aren't they lovely?

This card is for this weeks Creative Card Crew challenge 10: minimal and also for ABC 'keep it simple, as well as 365 cards day 61: 'leaf' it up to me!

Comfort food

I've managed to get another CJ done - I've amazed myself! lol!

This is Steph's (Nerdbird's) for the CBC group and it is her own CJ being returned to her. As I'm the last one to do a DLO I have the pleasure of seeing the finished CJ and what everyone else has put in it - I don't think Steph will be disappointed.

Steph asked us to share our favourite recipes for comfort food, so here is mine. The background paper is K & Co Urban Rhapsody.

The theme today on challenge 51 at A Spoon full of sugar is 'buttongs galore', so I'm linking for that - I think I have enough buttons on this DLO to qualify!

Pearls of wisdom

It was time to do my DLO in Net's 'Pearls of wisdom' CJ for the group on BF.

Net said: 'It's quite simple I need to know all the little pearls of wisdom your mum used to tell you. You know all the little things she used to tell you when you were small and you'd go off rolling your eyes thinking 'Oh year'. So no matter how odd you thought they were I need to know! In fact the odder the better!'

I must admit that I had to really think about this because as lot of the sayings I would have chosen had already been used by those doing the CJ before me.

Anyway, this is what I've come up with. I used DCWV Pocket full of posies papers because these co-ordinate with those Net used.

Circles, scallops and bling

This card is for this week's sketch on challenge 31 on Just Christmas and Birthday Cards:
On 365 cards today the theme is Tuesday's trio, consisting of circle-scallops-bling, all of which are on this card.

This is also good for challenge 13 (last week's one that I missed) on The Pink Elephant: circles and scallops.

The ingredients of this card are just pearlised card, scalloped circles, a DB flower, some star gems and a piece of Brenda Pinnick ribbon:
