Sunday's craft session

Even though I'm still poorly with a bad cough the challenges on the cardmaking forum spurred me on to do a bit of crafting today - thanks Kerrie love the sketch challenges in particular.

I created another snowy layout:
Am well pleased with how this came out. I used mainly Doodlebug stash (paper, sugar card, ribbon, swirl stickers and gem stones), also some Carolee's Creations words. The scallop edging I cut using the Quickutz Revolution scallop 12 inch border die.

Then there are these cards, the first is a sketch challenge, the second one we had to use black and white with a splash of colour.
The image is Simon & Lola by Sugar Nellie from Funky Kits. Sorry I can't remember who makes the patterned paper as it was an offcut from a 12 x 12 inch piece. The flowers are by Prima and I used Papermania glitter brads in the middle.
Ummm, I'm not really a black and white person but guess this card isn't too bad with a hint of pink. The paper is by Doodlebug and the flowers are by Bazzill and Prima with Doodlebug pink sugar brads.

That it for today, hope you've enjoyed seeing these.
