Sweet drummer boy!

This is for sketch 37 on Do not wast your Thursdays:

The text paper is DCWV (lingering in a box for a long while now, but seemed just right for this card. The image is a Charmed Cards and Crafts download: Rock till you drop 'drummer George'. Blue and white striped paper is from my scraps box and ribbon from stash. The base card is stardream red, which has a slight sparkly sheen to it.

This is also for:

Enjoy your travels in Venice

This is a simple card to give to someone who is going to Venice. I found the picture of the theatre on the internet. The lady going to the theatre is a digi download from Charmed Crafts: 'world tour, Madison in Venice' - you can see a close up of her underneath the card.

This is for City crafter 9: 'Venice, beyond Gondola' and also for Daring cardmakers: 'the world is your oyster'.

A pile of Birthday presents

Still trying to use up some of my Dena designs card/papers - the lines across the paper are actually folds. I've just realised that you can't really see the Happy Birthday silver on glittery black, but the light's faded now so no hope of getting a photo.

Donna's den of crafts has 'happy birthday' for the theme of their first challenge, so I'm showing this there (will try and come back with something better before the fortnight is up).

It's also for:

Party time Tuesdays 3: 'anything goes birthday'
For fun: 'happy birthday'

Animal magic

Another quick card made with Dena supplies (can you tell that I'm trying to use these up?!).

This time the card is for 'animal magic' for Totally papercrafts 20.

Bright thank yous

Another two cards which were quick to make - using up some of the Dena supplies and other bits that were lurking in the bottom of a box.

I'm linking these for:

Creative card crew 52: 'thank you'
Created by hand: 'gratitude'
Charisma cardz 23: 'spots and stripes'
Whimsical Wednesdays the Diedrich dare inspiration piece (I've used the colours):

Yay for the birds

Another quick card made from the rejects of two other cards - using Dena papers and decoupaged birds. This is for Lots to do week 23: 'birds/wings. It's also for Creative cottage 14: 'going pink'.

Simple sympathy card

This is a very simple sympathy card ('with deepest sympathy' on the insert) using some textured rub ons - the challenge atm on Creative Belli 93 is to use rub ons.

As there are 'bugs and beasties' on here I'm linking for Crafty calendar for June, which also has the optional extra of wings.

It's alo for Stamp dreams 35: 'card without scrap paper'

Garden inchies

The theme for the inchies swap for June on BF forum is 'garden'.

I stamped Hampton art rose background on to card with tattered rose distress ink and embossed it with clear - and then cut the inchies and distressed the edges with shabby shutters, after which I lightly inked the edges with copic sugared almond pink. I then stamped the rosebud (part of a stamp that I've had for ages and hardly ever use - one of the first stamps I ever had) and coloured with copics - RV02 sugared almond pink and G14 apple green. I added three silver gems on each and 'garden' printed on clear with my dymo letratag.

I'm linking them for these challenges:
