Pollycraft DT Call and a Few Challenges

Afternoon everyone.  I'm so enjoying this spring weather we're having lately, the nights are really starting to pull out and I feel really upbeat - SPRING IS COMING - YAAAAYYYYY!!!  

Just when I thought things couldn't get any better there is also a DT CALL running at the moment over at Pollycraft.   If you would like the chance to join the DT then you need to get yourself over to Tales from Pollycraft to check out the full details and grab yourself one or both of the freebie images.  You have to use either of the images for your DT entry.  You do not have to use both, though I have as I couldn't choose a favourite lol!
My first will also be entered into the following challenges

Paper Cutz - Anything
Crafty Calendar - Flower Power

and up close......................

Papers are from Basic Grey.  Copics and promarkers used to colour and a MS punch for the border.  Flowers are from Prima.  The polka dot brad is from Doodlebug I think!  Pearl brad from Hobby House.  The ribbon and charm are from my stash. I layered just the rim of her hat.

The second and final card for Pollycraft DT Call will be entered into the following challenges

Cute Card Thursday - Celebration (Easter)
Bee Crafty - Spring
Rosie D's - Think Spring
By the Cute and Girly - Spring is in the Air

The papers here are from Me and My Big Ideas and K&Co.  I used one of my favourite Leone Em punches for the leaves.  Flowers are prima and stash.  Everything else is stash.  The colours here were a bit more tricky as I seemed to not have enough cardstock in the shades of green and yellow I wanted.  I nearly binned this and started again but I'm pretty pleased with the final result.  I layered this image and concertinered the bun case along the lines before glueing it down and adding glitter to the icing.

Thanks for stopping by my little haven of crafty madness here in cyberspace.  Please don't be shy in leaving a comment, I love reading them and, I can then visit you and check out your lovely creations.

Take care
