3 challenges

At last a few minutes to craft and post. This is a holiday weekend here and as usaual the weather is not to kind. We manage a trip east on Saturday and caught a glimpse of the sun in Dunfermline, had a lovely lunch and a walk in the park. I even found a small craft shop in the High Street.
Well this card is for the Penny Black challenge colour scheme Chocolate , lemon and pink. These colours conjure up the flavour of Japp deserts, remember those sweets, I love them as a child. The sketch is from Truly Scrumptious with the use of three stamps. Finally Cute Card Thursday is Buzz Off, well not literally!

I used Penny Black 'buzz in the air', My Minds Eye 'Wild asparagus' and a free stamp from Cardmaking and Papercraft mag stamps, DCWV papers, Copic & Promarkers, Nesties & X-Cut flowers punches.

2 challenges

A quick post to put this card into 2 challenges. I have been busy with card orders and trying to tidy the garden while the sun is out. We have had so much rain of late that the grass was waterlogged and I had to wait till it drained before cutting it, and of course the weeds seem to thrive regardless.
I made this card for the Sugar Bowl challenge which is the sketch I used and the colours pink and brown. Charisma cards are looking for patchwork and this image has little patches on her trousers, I also added some cross stitches. I hope this counts.
I used Sugar Nellie image, Colored with Copic and Promarkers, Basic gray & DCVW papers, Nesties , Liquid Pearl and X-Cut flower punch

This card is based on the Sketch Saturday Challenge and also fits the Allsorts challenge of 'Something for the Boys'. I have made this for my sons birthday next month. He loves playing his guitar so I have made this with an image I have had for some time. I can't remember what make it is as I bought it at the SECC a few years ago. In fact most of the materials on this card are unknown from my stash. This is the list of what I have names for.

I used Copics /Promarkers to colour, Sizzlets alphabet, Sizzix music notes, Pebbles chalks, Cuttlebug and Liquid Pearls.
