'Planes, trains and automobiles'

Here I go again, Well actually i made this card about a week ago but think it is perfect for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge 4. The images are from the mod squad collection from pc crafter. I decoupaged them to give them a bit of depth. The car is mounted onto card that I embossed in my cuttlebug. The backing paper is out of my stash.

CPS #59 Hybrid

I have been a busy bee today with my crafting. After setting up the kids at the kitchen table with some crafting stuff, I sat at my crafting table and started going through the challenges. I really did have my craft head on today, think it was because a friend came by to visit and use my cuttlebug.
This is my 3rd card of the day and it is for the challenge on CPS.
There challenge this week is to make a hybrid card (they explain all about hybrid on their blog).
I found a scrap kit on my computer that i had downloaded ages ago, brownies by happy-scrap.

I Printed the first backing paper directly onto my card stock, the rest i printed onto Asda value glossy photo paper ( this is my favourite photo paper to use as you don't leave finger prints on it). I digitally typed the sentiments onto the ribbon and journaling tag before i printed them out. I then sut out the various pieces and assembled the card as i normally would.

I have had various free scrap kits that i have downloaded for ages and never thought of using them on my cards like this but i am quite please with the results.

Flight of Fancy

Caardvarks challenge this week is flight of fancy, they have asked us to 'think wings'. I decided this time to make a kiddies card and fell in love with bearie Fairies so decided to use one of these on my card, i also thought i would build up a little villiage for my bearie. The background paper is a glitter paper. i have added glitter to the bearies wings, and also to the computer generated sentiment.
Hope you like it

Shrink to fit

Daring Cardmakers challenge this week is Shriink to fit.
You are allowed to cover no more than a 5x5cms area of your card with paper or embellishment - the rest of the card must be left plain.

So, this is my card. I have to say i cheated a little as i had a lovely topper that I hadn't know what to do with, but when i saw this challenge I thought it would be perfect. I then hand wrote the sentiment using sakura stardust.
I love this simple look and might do a few more of them
