Bright and Cheerful pair!

Hi all!
Just a quick post (again) to show 2 cards which I'm entering into two different challenges this month - something I haven't done for a while but had the urge to have a bash!

This first one is this challenge through QCME magazine Pocket challenge
and a pocket must be on the card somewhere in the design.
 I've coloured  a Tiddly Inks digital character with Spectrum Noir markers, fussy cut it out and popped it onto a tag which I then added to the pocket on the front.
I wanted a mish-mash of patterns for impact and haven't used many embellishments otherwise it would be uber fussy.

The second card is for the challenge through Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine here
Baking themed challenge
and it's to celebrate the beginning of the new Great British Bake Off on TV so a baking themed card is required.
Again, I've used a Tiddly Inks digital character with dramatic modern paper which was a free download from Crafts Beautiful magazine   to set the image off.


I enjoyed the freedom to "just create!" It makes a change doing something for me as lately I've been busy in other directions.

Anyhoo, hope you're all well and I'm excited to be going on a holibob soon so I may be bringing fresh inspiration home with well as a tan!!!

Sunny Tuesday!

Hi all!
It's another beautiful day here today. The sun's out, I've cut the lawns and now it's time to craft! First though, I thought I'd pop in a quick post with a card I made a few weeks ago.
It's due to be featured in a Docrafts Creativity magazine at some point as they liked it and asked if I'd allow it into the mag.
Hope you like it too x

LOTV August Challenge

Good afternoon peeps! Hope you're all enjoying The Olympics as I am - I've not been able to step away from the screen since it started!!! I'm such an expert in so many sports now you wouldn't believe it!!! Hahaha. So, today, I'm showing a card I've made for the August challenge over on the
Lili of The Valley Facebook page

 I decided to make it less fussy than the usual LOTV cards as that's not quite my style but I've used some sparkly glitter to make up for it!
 Hope you like it!
