Three for Monday

I started 2 of these cards on Friday evening but never had time to finish them at the weekend so here they are now plus another.

At Stampin' for the weekend they are asking you to make a card and send it a child via post pals so my card is going to Amelia-Grace whose favourite colour is turquoise. The dragon is from Stitchy, paper is Clare Curd and flowers are Primas with pearls. Hi is from a punched out letter pad I bought in America.
Other challenges:
Kaboodle Monochromatic
Passion for Promarkers Fantasy/mythology
Creative Inspirations Card for a child
Colour create soft green and aqua
Stamp something 2 of something (mine is letters)
Stamptacular Pearls and swirls
Everybody Art Sketch
One Stitch at a time Furry friends(I know he isn't furry but the challenge said they would accept feathered too and as he is a stitchy image I hope he will count).

I discovered a challenge on a couple of blogs last week called Burtonesque Dolls dedicated to Tim Burton's work. What a great and quirky director he is so I thought I must enter this fun challenge of skulls and black flowers. I coloured my rock chick black and purple, don't you just lover purple hair, for a bit of a goth look. I won a pirate stamp set in a a mag giveaway a couple of years ago and knew it had a skull stamp so that was perfect with some Prima flowers.
Other challenges
Moving along with the times Great sketch
Crafty Creations Encouragement/celebration
Cupcake Black, grey plus another colour

Both Quixotic and Die cut dreams are challenging us to use a sentiment not an image on our cards this week. I bought a snowflake set from Personal Impressions half price in January and so decided to make another Christmas card for the nicely growing pile. The corner stamp was also part of the set. I used some scraps of paper, ribbon and punched snowflakes and gems.
I used the lovely sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and am entering it into Anything Christmas at Susie and Vikki's Christmas Club.

I am really struggling with feeling woozy today cause by my labrynthitis and using the computer isn't good. After this post and links I will be shutting down so aplogies that I haven't visited as much as usual.

Last 2 weeks to enter my candy here. I have nearly reached 100 entries. I have promised to add a second prize if I reach the magic 100.
