Papertake Weekly

I've had a good week off work and chance to take part in some blog challenges while my other half did the decorating.

I liked this sketch from Papertake Weekly so much that I have made 5 cards so far and will probably end up doing more.

I 've used a new stamp from Lili of the Valley coloured with Promarkers; papers are some K&Co which I've had for ages and I overstamped the plain one and the background with an SU stamp

Craft Club Challenge

Had a great day at the Great Northern Papercrafts Extravaganza yesterday. Got lots of new stamps to play with so looking forward to that. Here's a card I made for our local craft club challenge this month, we had to make a card or layout containing something starting with the same letter as your name so I used acetate and an acrylic stamp.
Stamp is Zoe gazing at the butterfly by Sarah Kay coloured with Promarkers, papers are Daisy Bucket, acetate is part of a Hambly overlay, flowers, brads and ribbons from various sources.
