Simon Says meets Basic Grey meets Sketch Saturday

Oh my goodness, where on earth did this snow come from again. Woke up to about 3 inches of the stuff this morning. It started to melt but now is coming down again!!! I was even bragging yesterday about how I had been able to get out in the garden and do a bit of tidying up. The added bonus of today though is that I got a bit of unexpected crafting time. I was supposed to be taking Emily to Daisy Nook country park where she is a voluntary warden, they were going to do some hedge laying but Jane the warden phoned to say it was off, yayyyy. Em wasn't impressed though she had got up early and was all dressed ready to go. So the card I have made today is for the Simon Says Challenge where there is a fabulous prize up for grabs to celebrate the welcome of their new DT members. The challenge is to use 3 embellishments, 2 designer papers and 1 image.

I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday Challenge and the challenge over at Basic Grey is to use the colours Maroon, lemon and pink so I have entered into their challenge too.
The image I have used is from Stampavie, it is Precious Moments be Sarah Kay, I have coloured her with Promarkers and Whispers Pens. The papers are Basic Grey Two Scoops. The flowers are from my stash. Gems from Home Bargains and charm from The Works.

Owl card for a special little girl

My card today is for a very special little girl who I have never met but shares a love of owls with me. Jennifer over at has put a request on her blog for cards for Delia who is 10 years old and has just been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia. The wonderful Dustin Pike has issued a free set of digi owl stamps for us to use for this

My second card is for Delia's little sister Adira, well Delia has had so many cards I didn't like to leave her out. I am also entering this one into the I love Digi Challenge. This is a new challenge blog and the first challenge is 'Pink'
The image is another of Dustin Pike's creations and even better it was another freebie. The patterned paper is a download from Scrapbooking mad. I have stamped the flowers on the card from a SeeD set and the sentiment is Clare Curd. The image is coloured with Promarkers.

3 Challenges

The card I have made today is using this fabulous free digi stamp from Wendybee over on the Docrafts forum. She has very kindly given us this stamp but we have to use it for the challenge. I have coloured it with Promarkers and used the gorgeous spring papers that were a freebie from a magazine My Minds Eye ' Pretty Please '

The sentiment was made on the computer. Ribbon and buttons from stash. I have used Anitas 3D gloss on the bubbles and a tiny bit of glamour dust.

I am also entering this card into the Passion for Promarkers Challenge which is to use Buttons and Bows and A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge which is Springtime.

Bah Humbug Challenge 6

The challenge at Bah Humbug this week is Snowmen. I love these challenges and my Christmas box is looking quite healthy. At this rate I will have too many cards by Christmas!!! I have used the sketch from Friday Sketchers.

Must dash now, got to clean up craft room it's a tip and darling hubby is on his way home from Australia. Just had an email from him, he has just landed in Singapore. Expecting him home around 11.45 tomorrow lunch so that'll just about give me time to get it looking like a dining room again lol.
