Saturday's challenges

I've been having a grand afternoon creating some cards, thanks to all the Saturday challenges.

Penny Black

The Penny Black Saturday challenge was "something to eat" :) I don't really have any PB stamps with cake on them but when I looked through my sticker sheets I came across an image I fell in love with. Here's the card:
I thought it cute that the cat was looking in anticipation at the fish, as if he wanted to eat it. The image is from PB's Whiskers and Tails. I used Stampin Up and Bazzill bling card, Stampin Up tab and scallop edge punches, dark brown chalk from the Colorbok queues and some odds and ends of cat patterned paper.

Sketch Saturday

Ummm when I first saw the sketch from Sketch Saturday I thought blimey what shall I do, but once I'd decided on the image it came together pretty well:
I used paper from the K&Co Designer pads, Stampin Up card, a Penny Black image "Frolic", Kaiser gems and a Craftworkcards sentiment.

Our Creative Corner

The sketch from Our Creative Corner was fantastic and enabled me to make this card which I love, it's perfect for an anniversary card which I'll send to my sister-in-law for next month:
The image is a Forever Friends clear sticker and I cut the ovals using the Creative Memories cutting system. The patterned paper is from the DCWV spring mattstack, the sentiment is from Stampin Up. Some ribbon and flowers finish off the card. I just adore the colours.

Secret Crafter

My last challenge card for today from blogs, this one is by Secret Crafter and asked for anything to do with "transport" on the card. Here's my design:
I don't have much in the way of transport but came across a Forever Friends clear sticker and fell in love with it. The patterned paper is by K&Co, I used Stampin Up and DCWV card, the Fiskars Corner scissors on the image and then put dewdrop gems in the corners. The sentiment is a rub on one by The Scrapbook House.

Thanks for looking I'm enjoying these challenges very much, it really gets the juices flowing :)
