Just calming down enough to post this card for this week’s Friday Sketchers 🙂 Made with my new Limitless Limbs (OK, so there are some more cards cued up with this stamp!) Thought that I would do some thank you cards as a break from Christmas cards.

Lemon and Lime

Celebrating a new birth in Lemon and Lime – what do you think? This card was made for the following challenges: the celebration theme from A Spoon Full of Sugar, the great sketch from Friday Sketchers, the Baby theme on Thank God it’s Friday and the new challenge blog This Thursday It’s About which is starting with the theme ‘Fresh’.


So this card uses free papers from Papercraft Essentials, Sugar Nellie Little Cotton Rabbits stamp coloured with watercolour pencils, DCWV card stock and then some Fiskars embossing plates to emboss the rectangular yellow card. Some little doodling on the edges to finish the card. You know I still haven’t worked out the best light to use to get a good photo…

I’ve been sampled twice for this one. Thanks guys 🙂 This Thursday, It’s All About and Thank God It’s Friday.

More challenge Cards

Here is another challenge card but this one is for two different challenges.

Friday Sketchers blog has a great sketch for their second challenge. Then Stamp Something has a little something to say ‘Thank you’ challenge.

So this card was put together in black, white, blue and green using papers from DCWV’s All Dressed Up stack and some hand-drawn pictures – I don’t have enough stamps so had to make do 🙂 The flowers were made by sticking sellotape to the papers, stamping a flower with StazOn, cutting out the flower and then soaking the paper off. The pattern from the paper stays on the sticky tape and you have a fab flower embellishment. The bird was finished off with some patterned paper for the wing and a pearl-like bead cut in half for an eye.
