Hi to all! What a blustery day it's been but we have the wonderful sunshine to top it up. I've been wanting to do a number card for a's a full A4 folded in half, with plenty of embossing with the cuttlebug, numbers are new d/load printout but I can't remember where they were from as I've forgotten to name the folder (could be from cardmaking download site), font from the computer, as ever the brilliant old Forever Friends with cake stamp coloured with my Promarkers, I've used this one several times since buying it, just adorable bears, lace at the bottom, sheer ribbon from Meiflower at the top and some bunting cut out from scraps of Donna's freebie d/load. Love this one so much, it's going to be hard giving it away!
Challenges entered are 10..Forever Friends 'embossing', Poodles Parlour 'here come the girls', I Love Promarkers 'bunting', DYSU 'birthdays', Papertake weekly 'things that make you go awwww', My Mums Craft Shop 'anything goes' as is Stamp and Create, Charisma 'doubles..2 numbers and 2 wording bits', Simon Says 'put a stamp on it' and Dream Valley 'something old, something new'..old- FF stamp, new- number printout.

Hi and a little card (well not so little) to show you with not much on it as it's for 5 challenges some of them asking for precisely that. Hope that all the crafty bloggers are well and enjoying the bit of good weather we've had today in the uk! It's so warm that a good potter round the garden was called for but I didn't see many of these beautiful creatures's such a shame that this year I've only seen a minimal amount, looking onward to what next year will bring I think. Sentiment stamp from Daisy & Dandelion set was stamped first, cut out the wonderful butterfly from Nikky's cd d/load (can't remember which one it was, it was printed afair few months ago), laid the small one onto the larger one, then applied some Glamour Dust trailing behind it, it didn't quite look right(empty) so I added the flowery border but couldn't on the left side as there wasn't enough room so i thought I'd use the American Crafts dotty border to finish that side. Hope it doesn't look too odd but i got it finished in the end. Stamped with walnut Stain distress ink, flowers coloured with Pink Promarker. Challenges entered are Simply Less is Moore 'brown & pink', Charisma 'no embellishments', Flutterby Wednesdays 'birthday' and don't forget the butterfly or fairy, Papertake Weekly 'anything goes' and Joanna Sheen 'going dotty'. Many thanks for coming over, enjoy the rest of today!

Happy Monday! Hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to the week ahead...suppose to be a good sunny week. My card is using some old See D's stamps, coloured with Promarkers, sentiment is part of a Hero Arts stamp..just masked off the rest of the wording. I've  also layered up the middle flower and there's Glamour Dust all round. Honeycomb paper is a Pink Petticoat d/load, I thought this would encourage all the bees to come out ;)..added some faux sticthing to finish.
So my sunshiney card is for 10 challenges...ABC 'w for wishes', CCT 'stitch in time', My Mums Craft shop 'all the 3's..3 flowers, stems and leaves', I Love Promarkers 'anything goes' as are Simon Says, Party Time Tuesdays with a blog hop for the lovely Jen who's battling with cancer at the moment, Natalie and Amy new and very 1st challenge, Bearly Mine 'anything that glitters', Papertake Weekly 'chosen sketch 64', Creative Inspirations 'Bingo..chosen ribbon, flowers, glitter'.
