Cardmaking Day

Boy hasn't it been hot? Managed to get out for a walk early this morning but even at 7.30 am it was hot. Was glad to get back in the coolness of the fan :)

This afternoon I had a cardmaking session and finished this month's birthday cards. Can't show you those yet but can show you 4 challenge cards Kerrie put up on the cardmaking forum. Two are from last week and two for this week.
This one was a sketch challenge. I used a Penny Black (Dressed up Dog 2082E) stamped image; and my April Scrapagogo Greetings kit papers which are Making Memories 5th Avenue. The sentiment stamp is by Cuddly Buddly. The scalloped edge I created by using my EK Success corner punch.
The next challenge was to make a card using flowers. Again I used a Penny Black stamp (Poppy Fields 3199J), K&Co Poppy patterned paper, Cosmos and Prima flowers and Doodlebug sugar brads.

Now on to this weekend challenges. I didn't get a chance to do last weekend's with being poorly so was pleased to enjoy my crafting session this afternoon and get all the challenges done.
This is the sketch challenge. I used Doodlebug and Daisy Bucket garden paper, Prima flowers, Papermania glitter brads, the sentiment is by Hero Arts and the image is a downloadable printed image by Pink Petticoat which I coloured and glittered with Stickles glitter glue.
The last challenge was for a bright and beautiful card. The paper is by Doodlebug, the image is a Magnola Tilda with heart dress, the sentiment is a rub-on and the flowers are by Prima and Cosmos, I used Kaiser gems in the corner of the image.

Thanks for looking, hope it's a little cooler next week :)
