I really enjoyed the challenge over at cute card thurs this week. You could do anything you wanted, but you had to use something that you got for xmas. I made a valentines card for my boyfriend using the alphabet and the spots and dots embossing folder he got me for my bug. The stamp was free with a magazine this month, cant remember which one tho!
The challenge for the 1st week on charisma cardz was PINK! I left it quite simple just made a simple pink blank, used a whipper snapper image that i was sent by somebody on Docrafts, used some paper from my stash that ive had for ages, im not even sure who its by. Added a bit of ribbon, a few gems and a flower sticker.

I was quite pleased with how this turned out! I used basic gray two scoops papers, which i love, the ribbon was around a box of chocs that i was given for xmas, the text was done on my computer, a couple of prima flowers from the bitty bag, and 2 pearls. In the bottom right corner ive used an ornate swirl that was part of a lakeland set that i won from somebody on Docrafts that didnt use it.
Thought id make an easter card as i had never done 1 before and somebody sent me the image in a swap. K&co paper, cirle cut with my nesties, embossing folders used were swiss dots and spots and dots, and the word was done using my tadpole cuttlekids alphabet. I inked around the edges of them, to make them stand out a bit from the base card, but im not really sure that i like the effect. Looks abit messy?!
This is my 1st post in absolute yonks. I thought i would make my first post of the year my entry to the penny black challenge. You had to use embossing on your card. Im not sure about this card, but oh well, ive made it now! I used : Die cuts with a view paper, swiss dots embossing folder in my bug ( you cant see very clearly but its the blue bit), a ribbon free with a mag years ago, and a papermania ribbon brad. Coloured with whispers.
