another card that i have combined but this time with three challenges, i didn't set out to do it but the card fell into the three catagories. it is the first time for me doing the creative inspirations challenge and the sketch is a lovely one to use, for a spoonful of sugar the theme this week is touchy feely so the A.B.C blocks cover that (i think) and the embossing through the middle covers the creative card crew challenge which this week is emboss. (this also can be used for the spoonful of sugar challenge). the stamp is from funky kits 'homegrown' range called bedtime stories. everything else is from my stash.
one card two challenges for this posting, i have been so busy that i have had to combine a couple of cards, don't really like doing this but needs must!!!! the card is for the first ever challenge on sunday sketch and stash and the sketch was a lovely one to follow. the other challenge is for cute card thursday which this weeks theme is 'happy mail' the stamps are from magnolia and are called 'kissing edwin' and 'shy tilda' both from sir stampalot the paper is a basic grey and i used a cuttlebug embossing die to do the flowers down the side. i thought it would be a good card to send someone a kiss in a card!!!! ahhhhh.
