Saturday afternoon crafting

I've been lucky enough to have had a free afternoon today so have just spent a lovely peaceful two and a half hours making a couple of cards. The sun is shining for a change though it it is still very cold.

This little sweetie is a Greeting Farm stamp called Snuggle. I used my label nestie for both her and the Cuttlebug flower embossed card. I then inked and stamped around her with a Field of Sky stamp. The DP is just one sheet from the Papermania Honey and Hugs range. I added a ticket from Alissa Designs, which I coloured with a cerise PM and some chalk. I also used a dressmakers wheel to create some tiny hole lines around the ticket. I added a flower charm, some punched fern leaves, a Prima hydrangea and some flowers from Wild Orchid which have all been sparkled with Shimmerz.

Challenges:
ABC O is for one paper (They also have a DT call)
Friday Sketchers sketch
Anyone for Anya Flower power
Totally Gorjuss Flower power
Creative Card Crew Get well soon
Allsorts Tag,ticket or label


The second card is a complete contrast. I'm definitely beginning to enjoy making men's card more than I used to although I still miss putting flowers onto a card. The sketch for this card came from CRAFT and the challenge at Cards for men is green. I haven't used my Sizzix grass die for months but is fitted this sketch just perfectly.

Hi Marianne,
Wow hun, such a contrast between your two cards. I adore the first one - super cute image and love the colouring. Your man's card is fab too - I know what you mean about the flowers though!!!
