Hey Chickie!

Single layer cards are the order of the day at Sentimental Sundays this week (+ a sentiment).  As I won 4 images from Bugaboo I thought I'd use one of those.  This was a really quick card as the image was already coloured :D  I did add hand draw/colour the branch though (I really thought I was going to mess the card up but it came out better than expected). I just finished off with a couple of pearls & some embroidery thread.  I've gotta keep this brief cos we're just in from a very bracing walk along the seafront & hubby is waiting for me to snuggle up on the sofa & watch a movie (& I could really do with a cuppa).

The challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Things With Wings
Southern Girls - Winged Things
Open Minded Crafting - Up In The Air
Eureka Stamps - Birds of a Feather
Crafty Boots - Add a Sentiment
Creative Craft Cottage - Include a Sentiment
QKR Stampede - Critters

Here is my original card, but realised it not strictly single layer lol

 Thanks for looking & enjoy the rest of the weekend & have a great week! xx

Seeing Red!

Well I'm not seeing red lol that is this week's challenge at Sentimental Sundays (+ a sentiment) & we are sponsored by the wonderful Aurora Wings & the DT got to use some of their fabulous images; I used Poppy Sprite which I coloured with ProMarkers, the papers were from my stash, I did some stitching & finished the card off with a punched flower, stamped ticket, ribbon & gem.  I haven't done any colouring for ages & it was quite therapeutic even if it never turns out exactly how I imagined lol.

Hiding in my Craft Room - Colour Challenge
Digi Galore - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore - Stamp or Digi
Card and Scrap - Use Flowers

Mr & Mrs...

Happy Sunday everyone!  Though the weather here is not looking too bright; sleeting & windy.  It's okay for me as I'm warm & cosy in my craft room but poor ol hubby is out there playing footy.  Speaking of husbands... this week's challenge at Sentimental Sundays is "Wedding/Anniversary" (+ a sentiment).  I kept it CAS using up some paper I've had for years & a Pink Petticoat sentiment (I love Pink Petticoat).  The hearts are a Martha Stewart punch - thinking about it now I think it's a little too plain so I'm going to add a couple of sequins or pearls but can't be bothered to photo it again so you will have to use your imagination lol.  I hope you will have time to join us.

I decorated the inside a lil too
