Charisma Cardz Thursday Challenges

A new challenge blog has started this week called Charisma Cardz and i am really excited to see what sort of challenges we are instore for.
The first challenge is PINK
Create a card, atc, scrapbook page or altered item. You can use any type of image you want to!!
Here is my card for their first challenge. For this card i decided to raid my scrap box as I really need to use up all my bits and bobs. The pram is a die cut sent to me in a RAK. I really enjoyed making this card

CCT 42

Ok so yes i have been making cards for challenges all day and am still going strong, I'm just feeling in a really crafty mood today.
This next card is for Cute Card Thursday.
The challenge this week is:
'we would like to see you use something you got for Christmas on your cards (if you didn't get anything suitable for Christmas then you can use something that you bought yourself over the holidays)!' I had to think long and hard for this one as most of the crafty stuff i received for christmas wasn't really cute. I searched through my stamped images to find an image to use and then as i had just received my prize from Trimcraft I chose a backing paper from this that would go well with the image. I also used one of my embossed cards and ribbon from the prize. All of these Laura Ashley Galleria. I had some fibres in one of my secret santa's so i found one that matched well and used this on my card. In the end i was quite pleased on how it turned out.

Spoon full of Sugar challenge #33

On Spoonful of sugar this week there is a fabulous sketch by Nikki and i just had to have a play with it. And as I received my prize Draw Prize from Trimcraft this morning I thought it was a great opportunity to use some of my prize with the sketch. DP Laura Ashley Galleria glitter pack. and ribbon from my prize. CS for matting very pale green. Image Magnolia Tilda that I received in a swap, water coloured colour box inks . Flowers from a secret santa and brads from my stash.

sketch and stash

I've just found this wonderful ne challenge blog Sketch and Stash.
Every 2 weeks there is a sketch to follow and all you have to do is use your new or never used (or hardly used!) stash on your creation! This is your chance to fall in love with all that stash again or just to show off with your brand new stash!!
Here is my card for their first sketch The image is one I had sent to me by one of my blogging friend a while ago but have not had chance to use. I coloured this with my watercolour pencils.
DP from my stash had it a long time but never used it. Little bear is a peel off stuck on to glitter card and then highlighted with my whisper pens. Ribbon from stash.
