My Time to Craft, Sketch Saturday and Cute Card Thursday Challenges

Hi Everyone! I hope you've all been enjoying the sunshine! I've had a great morning today with Dylan at our local Museum. I haven't been in quite some years and I was really impressed with how much there is for the kids nowadays. He had a look through a magnifying glass at loads of bugs and stuffed animals and he even dressed up as loads of different creatures (Spider, ladybird, bumble bee and cow, so sweet!!) And he was even interested in the the more adult exhibitions like the Spitfire plane and all the pottery which I didn't think he'd like at all! After lunch I was beginning to think that he'd never want to leave, but I eventually managed to sneak him out with the promise of some sweets lol!!

Anyway, I am back today with 2 cards, my first is for the challenge at My Time to Craft this week which is Christmas!! I have used the freebie Drake the Penguin image available from the Pollycraft Blog and made a shaker card...
Sorry about the wonky photo!! I distressed around the edges, coloured Drake with ProMarkers and then just added a few snow flakes behind acetate to make the shaker then I just decorated the frame with some embellies!!

My next card covers the sketch at Sketch Saturday and the colour combo at Cute Card Thursday which is Red and Teal and here is the card I made...

I used another Pollycraft image 'Melody in Love' for this card, she is one of the images from the soon to be released 'Sweet Dreams' collection. I coloured Melody with ProMarkers and added a bit of glitter to her dress. The papers are from HOTP and the flowers are Prima.

I also need to let you that Jacqui, Bev, Emma and Claire have yummy candy on offer at the moment, check them out!!

Well, that's it for me today, I am hoping to get some crafting done this evening so hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with more cards!!

Thanks for looking once again!

Love Becky xx
