Summer sun (wishful thinking!)

This card is for Saturday sketch 51:

It's also for:

365 cards day 52: Tuesday trio: 'brad, blossom and circle'
Keryn Campbell colour challenge 18: 'glorious green, summer sun, rose red and a neutral'
Creative Belli challenge 64: 'jumbo brad'

365 cards day 50: super sketch Sunday

This was the sketch for 365 cards day 50:

and this is my take on it - the label shape is chipboard:

Matchbook card

Day 46 on 365 cards was a challenge to make a matchbook card.

This is also good for ABC Challenge 'I for inside' (this is one that I missed - I've now caught up with every letter so far, except the current challenge).

I used a strip of DCVW textured pink card, tutti fruiti papers and some lovely rub ons that I've had for ages.


It's hip to be square

'It's hip to be square' was the theme of day 81 on 365 cards and here's my take on it:

Matching card and envie

This card is for challenge 42 sketch on Cutie Sunday:

It's also good for a few other challenges:

Today (day 83) on 365 cards: 'make it match' (card and envelope)
Our Creative Corner color challenge: 'Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue along with a neutral color'
Secret Crafter Saturday challenge 32: 'glitter'
Dutch Dare 49: 'bling-bling/glitter
CBCC094: 'all that glitters'
Lots to do 19 : 'stripes and/or lines' (late for that one - again!)

There is glitter on the rub on image and also in the centres of the flowers (turquoise stickles).

The outer flap of the envie is stripey like the card.


Copics colour challenge 14 this week is to use B14 bright blue, R27 Cadmium red and Y08 acid yellow (I had to replace B14 with B05).

I created a twinchie, using a stamp that usually has a border, but I cut that off. The challenge this week on Small world of inchies and twinchies is 'chairs' or anything that can be sat on, so I think this little girl qualifies as she's sitting on a stone step, cradling her cat.
