A thank you apple for the teacher

This card is for Mercy's sketch 75 (I love her sketches):

The image is a Charmed Dottie download from the Dottie at home digis entitled 'back to school'. This week the challenge on Dottie's World is 'thanks a bunch', so this is also for that (just scraping in at the last moment).

There are quite a lot of challenges this week calling for red, white and blue (or our country's flag colours, which, of course, for me in UK are red, white and blue):

Created by hand
Diva coffee break 178
Res-Q 47
Stamp, scrap & doodle 42
No time to stamp 141: 'flying high and proud'

It's also for:

Crazy challenge 16: 'it's a girl thing'
Paper cutz 43: 'card for a teacher'
Penny's challenging challenge: 'fruit and/or veggie theme' - Dottie is holding an apple for the teacher
Daisy doodles: 'anything goes' - I've included a digi
Lucy's cards 10: 'digital'
Annabelle: 'say it with ribbon'

Christmas kiss

This card is for Lexi's creations 14 sketch:

I've used BG figgy pudding papers (wish I could get more because they are running out and I can't get a 6" x 6" pad anywhere). The image is a Charmed download called 'Christmas kiss', which I hope makes it OK for ABC Christmas 'K is for kisses'.

I'm also trying not to get behind again this month with the 25th club on BF forum, so this is my first card for Tracey's June challenge ... 'to use Christmas flora. So holly, mistletoe, ivy and of course Christmas trees.'

It's also for:

Paper sundaes 19
: 'favourite book, poem or fairy tale' - my choice: poem 'Twas the night before Christmas' also Disney's 'Fairytale Christmas'
Everybody art 92: ' fairy tale' - my choice: Disney's 'Fairytale Christmas' (including the kiss)
Daisy doodles: 'anything goes' - I've included a digi
Digital Tuesday 60: 'cute people'
Lucy's cards 10: 'digital'

Purple maison des fleurs

I bought the lovely 'maison des fleurs' Stampotique stamp by Janet Klein a while ago and this is my first opportunity to use it.

I've followed the sketch on Scrap-creations going grey challenge 12 which this week is being sponsored by Stampotique:

The background paper is some that was in my scraps box (quite a large 'scrap' because the card is 7" x 5") and the bands of two papers across the middle are BG wisteria.

I stamped the image with dusty concord and then used some of the ink to lightly colour with a water brush.

Stampotique design challenge 8 is ''purple' so this card is also for that.

I'm also linking this for:

Stamptacular 60: 'pearls and swirls'
One stop craft 82: 'swirls & pearls'
Oh alice 15: 'something new is swirling about' - use swirls
Stamp dreams 33: 'swirls'
Frosted designs: 'photo inspiration'
Divine diva inspiration 28 - inspired by the purple flowers on the make-up bag
Hanna and friends 46: 'monochrome'
Kaboodle 31: 'monochromatic card'
Crafts by Carolyn TTC001: 'lilac'
