Too late for some ...

Last night I was feeling very unwell, but wanted to try and do something to take my mind off it, so I got out part of a QVC kit (yes another that I bought thinking I would make the cards for selling for charity, but until now it was still in the box).

Anyway, you can hardly call it crafting, but I managed to make four cards - they were meant to be for some challenges that finished last night, but, having made the cards, I just didn't feel like blogging them, so I've missed the boat on some of them - nevermind.

There were lots of sheets of double sided card in the kit, so I decided to cut them down and use as the base card, adding scalloped edging trims with just a bit of the underneath showing.

As usual, the silver surrounds have come out looking more like black on the scans.

Having blogged these too late for some of the challenges they were originally intended for, I'm linking for these:

Hand full of stamps 27: 'just a little dottie' - 3 of the cards have dots on
One stitch at a time 12: 'going dotty' - 3 of the cards
Critter 13: 'Critter birthday project' - 3 of the cards are birthday with critters on them
Lexi's creations 13: 'animals'
Jacksonbelle: 'clean and simple'
ABC: 'U is for unused stash' - this kit had been left in the box till now
Stampavie 94: 'pink' - lots of it here
Alphabet: 'B for butterflies' - on the first and third cards
Etsy inspired 87: 'Lindsay Brackeen' - inspired by the owls
Creatalicious 9: 'flowers and wings' - they feature on all 4 cards

Design Dollies elements challenge: 'nursery rhyme inspired' -

A wise old owl lived in an oak
The more he saw the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard.
Why can't we all be like that wise old bird?
