A few challenges

When I saw the colours chosen for the Dynamic Duos this week, I thought I would have a go, as they are not colours I feel immediately drawn to.
For this card I have used astrip of Pink Petticoat little elephant paper which teams really well with the little elephant from SU's Patterned Occasions set. I masked out the sentiment and inked the stamp with So Saffron ink before adding a touch of green with a marker to the leaves.
The sentiment was computer generated using exactly the same colour as the paper.
Would you believe it ... I missed the challenge, I'm sure it was still open when I decided to make this card this morning!
It's also for the challenge at CAS on Sundays where the challenge is Oh Baby!
This one follows the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and uses a Slapstick stamp from Penny Black.
 I combined with a  sheet of stars  die-cut from  die by Memory Box... it may be one that is distributed by Simon Says Stamp. I used some of the star cut-outs to embellish the length of ribbon!
We have guests for dinner this evening, they gave us lifts to and from the ship for our last cruise and we just want to say thank you! I've just re-joined Slimming World, as the cruises we've been on in the last year have sabotaged last year's weight loss! The menu this evening is probably more calorific than it should be, but I am trying to keep things tasty yet healthy!


  1. Gorgeous creations each with its own unique character.
