Bright and cheerful

For this card I've used the sketch for Think ink challenge 13 on Artful inkables:

It's also for Cute Daisy May 'bright and cheerful' - the image is a CDM digi one - and it was coloured with copics for this week's challenge 51 on Copic Colour:
It's also for:

Little paper shop: 55 'distressing' - the torn paper
Sparkle creations Christmas week 10: 'blue and red' - the 'script' paper is winter/Christmas themed, so this card might well go into my Christmas box
Susie & Vikki's Christmas club 4: 'digital Christmas' - the image is a CDM digi
Stampin' B 45: 'make a red, white and blue non-patriotic card'
Simple doodles 10: 'add some background'

The background paper was some that I got ages ago in a swap. Why is it that photos look wrong with flash, so I resorted to a scan and now that makes the ribbon look crooked when it's not!

A simple green card

A quick card for Mercy's sketch 60:

The pieces used on this card are from Dena designs.

This is also for:

Paper sundaes 5: 'a glittery spring' - there is glitter on the rectangle and the leafy swirl, but hard to see on the scan
Cards for men 4: 'green' - I think this would be suitable for a man
Fun with shapes and more 40: 'lilac, green and white' - there is only a bit of lilac, but it is there on the bird's tail

Give a hoot - recycle when you can

This is a card to myself - to put on my shelf as a reminder. It uses the freebie image 'give a hoot' given this week on Digi Kitty for their 'get owly' challenge. The symbol on the owl is, of course, a recycling one, so I thought it would be a good idea to base my card on that theme and to put it on display to help me to remember to recycle when I can - we have separate bins for paper, plastic/tins/glass, food scraps ... I coloured the owl with copics (having printed him on recycled card).

Of course, all the materials used for the card have been recycled.

I've used Papertake sketch 34:

It's also for:

Crazy amigo

Digital Tuesday 45: 'it's all about animals'
