Three Cards

Morning everyone.  The weathers a bit grey and dreary looking this morning, hope it brightens up later!  I have been neglecting the various challenges out there at the moment since returning to work and taking on various DT's so I have changed that by making FIVE purely for the fun of doing challenges Whoo Hooo!!!

I have three to show you here and I'm rather pleased with how they turned out!  I had just bought my Big Shot before making the first card and BOY did I have fun playing with my diecuts and combining my new nestie with new Nellie frame and rather neglected Charmed image. How did I manage without a BS lol?   Only thing is my wish list is now MASSIVE as I love virtually every die cut and embossing folder I see rofl.  This card will be entered into the following challenges:

Dotties World - 2 x 3D Butterflies
Cupcake Crafts - Make Your Own Flowers
ABC Challenge - Red
Stampin for the Weekend - Ribbons and Bows
Stamptacular Sunday - Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice
Daring Cardmakers - Diamonds (on the butterflies)

I've used a Charmed Download here, I certainly think she adds the spice part to the SS challenge and with flowers, butterflies, bows and a bit of bling - what more could a gal want hahahaa!


My second card is for

Pollycraft - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Animal Magic

I love this image and he was just crying out for a bit of layering.


My final card is for

Just Cute Bears - Yellow and Green

Isn't he adorable, I bought him at the recent fair in Harrogate - can't believe its taken me a couple a weeks to getting round to using him lol!  I think he'll be a regular though!

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day whatever you're up to.  Happy crafting.
