Two for Sunday

After a very productive morning gardening and ironing followed by a trip to Sainsburys this afternoon I had time for some crafting. I had coloured both images on Friday and having completed the cards then had a look at e-mails and today's challenges. I was so pleased to find I had won 3 digis at Sunday sketch and stamp and had an e-mail inviting me to be guest designer in 3 weeks time at Christmas stamping all year round. I was also in the top 3 at the 2 Sisters challenge.

A couple of weeks ago I had my card all ready for the Whiff of Joy challenge when my I had computer problems with my antivirus and couldn't upload my card. I was so annoyed as I was really pleased with this card which you can see here. This fortnight there is another fabulous sketch at Whiff of Joy and here is my interpretation. I rotated the sketch to fit the image. Papers are Papermania Rose Garden and Summer Blooms with BG Euphoria. I thought I would use Sizzix cut swirls with the Wild Orchid cherry blossoms for a change from punched leaves. I added some ribbon and some tiny heart gems, glitter to the hearts and wings on the image and some faux stitching.
Other challenges
The Corrosive Challenge Pink and blue
Create 4 fun Flowers
Fussy and fancy Stitches, scallops and sparkle

Last week I flashed my freebie at Tales from Pollycraft and Paula sent entrants this fun image and asked us to make a card with it using green. I used MME Wild Asparagus and a scrap of Hampstead. Sentiment is from Craftwork cards.
