Cute Card Thursday Challenge

This weeks challenge was to use no ready made backing papers. My card is my entry for this challenge. I used Sugar Nellie "Maggie dressing up stamp" & matted with nestabilities. I then used cuttlebug embossed backing, bow & flower added.
Second card was going to be my entry but I couldn't resist using the Francois Reade paper as I thought it went well with the Sugar Nellie "picking apples" stamp. Funky ribbon & buttons to embellish as I very into these at the moment!

Magnolia challenge card & first Sugar Nellie!

First Sugar Nellie card. I also used oil pastels for the first time to colour the image. I can see with a bit more practice the pastels will be an effective medium to use.
The dottie card for this Sunday's Magnolia challenge.

Charity Cards

These are just a few of my favourite cards I have made for the charity box at St Marks school. The money raised goes to street children in Africa, they sponsor a little boy called Emanuel. I am enjoying blogging now, I think it will be a great way to keep a record of past designs.

Tilda Challenge (Do Crafts forum)

This is my entry for the Tilda challenge on the Do Crafts forum. This week the task I set was to use some form of cut work on the cards. I used scalloped edged scissors to cut patchwork squares from handmade paper. I also had great fun using my fab new border & decorative accent cuttlebug dies for the borders. I will remember to use more handmade papers they seem to suit the Magnolia stamps.
