crafty afternoon

Hello girlies, hope you're all well and enjoying a lovely bank holiday weekend! I hope you have had some sun couldn't make up it's mind whether it wanted to be sunny or to rain here, so it did both, repeatedly throughout the day lol

I managed a couple of hours at the craft table this afty and made a couple of cards (well three actually but one will be blogged tomorrow as it's my DT card.)

This card is for the challenges over at Papertake Weekly is to use spots and stripes and I followed the sketch at The Pink Elephant

Image: Smirk

Papers: Funky Hand (from Huge Funky Love)

Ribbon: from stash

Border Punch: Martha Stewart Embossed scallop

The second card is for two challenges again: A Spoonfull of Sugar want blue and green creations this week and the sketch is from Sketch and Stash Challenge

Image: Lili of the Valley

Coloured with: promarkers

Papers: Funky Fairy (Paisley Love) which is my new stash

Brads: Laura Ashley

Have a lovely evening girlies ~ see you tomorrow with a fabby sketch at JCBC :o)
