Two for Sunday

The theatre and meal were really good last night. Been busy today, gardening, buying some plants, sorting out finances etc but found time then to make these 2 cards. The first is a Sugar Nellie image called a Good Book, one of my favourite things. I added touches of glitter, papers are Papermania Rose Garden and BG Euphoria. Flowers are all Prima, with a spacer and various brads.
Challenges:
Cupcake books or stories
Tuesday Taggers Books
Papertake Sketch
Paper Sundaes 3 types of embellie (Mine's flowers, spacer and brads)

This is an old LOTV stamp,which is just great for young men. The papers are K&Co Hopscotch. I added a Papermania glitter strip, punched stars to which I added some faux stitching with a white gel pen and card candy from Craftwork cards. This red candy reminds me of Smarties.
Challenges:
Inspirational card Sketches Sketch
Lili of the Valley One for the boys
Paperplay Autumn is coming (Autumn colours)
Totally Papercrafts Let's go dotty
Allsorts Colours of Autumn
