A Very Long Post!!

Well, here is my catch up for the last few days so as the title of the post says, this is a very long post lol!

My Time To Craft Challenge
It was my turn to pick the challenge at My Time to Craft this week so I chose teddies as I just love them!! I used these cute little teddy stamps which came in a kit from QVC and coloured them with Pro Markers. The backing paper is from the Eva Basic Grey pad and the sentiment is Elzybells.

Whiff of Joy Challenge

Here is a card I made last night for the challenge at Whiff of Joy where there is a great sketch to follow. I used my new Charlotte stamp which I won from Mariska's blog (thank you!) and coloured her with Pro Markers. The papers are all freebies from magazines and I've added a few embellishments (the green flower was originally orange but I coloured it with my Pro Markers!)

A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge

The challenge this week at A Spoon Full of Sugar is to use the colours Pink and Green. I used some more freebie papers from craft magazines and Elzybells stamps, again coloured with Pro Markers. The scallop frame around the image is so easy to do, just doodle a frame and colour in with Pro Markers, it looks really pretty!

Lili of the Valley Challenge

The challenge this week at Lili of the Valley is Enchantment. I did a fold back card here, fold a card as normal and then fold the top from right to left so you get to see the inside and you have a concertina fold at the front. I kept this card nice and simple, just K & Co papers, LOTV die cuts and background and a DCWV sentiment. Have you seen the news? I've been picked as Guest Designer for the challenge over the next 2 weeks! Woo Hoo!!

Thank You Jilli!

The wonderful Jilli sent me another gorgeous wallet full of stamped images and stamps (and I've nearly got yours ready at long last lol!) These images are just the sweetest!

Thank You Mariska!

Here is the stamp I won on Mariska's blog candy, and she also sent me the most adorable stamped images too! If you haven't visited Mariska before then please do, her cards are amazing!
Well that's the end of my very long post, I hope you enjoyed looking at all my cards. I'm just about to start my weekly shift at work, it always comes round far too quickly!! Have a great weekend!

Love Becky xx
