Today I finally entered some more challenges I've been wanting to participate in. I'm a little short on time lately so I decided/tried to make one card that would incorporate all the different challenges!
The challenges are:
- to use a button(s) (http://thecuttlebugspot.blogspot.com)
- to create a home-made flower (www.peachykeenstampschallenge.blogspot.com)
- to use the smiley cards cartridge (http://scrappymoms-stamps.blogspot.com)
- to use some ugly paper you have lying around (http://queenofmycraftroom.blogspot.com)
It may not look too bad right now but the paper I used for the background was definitely ugly haha! It was an animal paper pack that I got when I first started scrapbooking. I cut out bits and pieces to create a scenic background! There is a picture below to give you an idea of what the ugly paper really looked like!
Also, this was the first ribbon/button flower I've ever made.. I like the idea but I'd probably do it a little different next time! Make sure you head on over to the websites above to enter some fun challenges! xo

To make this cute little flower I used a Fiskars flower punch and punched out 3 flowers in 3 different colours. Then I used my eyelet tool to keep the 3 layers together.
I thought it turned out super pretty but it was so small I didn't know what to do with it! So I flicked through the cards I already had lying around and I used it to embellish the inside of a Spring card I made earlier this month! xo

Here are a couple of cards I made for some very special friends of mine!! I was going to enter the giraffe card into the twine challenge at The CuttleBug Spot but I was too late! I entered the elephant one into a layout/sketch challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps! xo

The challenge for My Pink Stamper's blog hop this month was to create something Springy! It's so nice to be able to use nice, bright colours after this very long winter! I decided to do a quick card without using my Cricut! Hope you like it! xo
Hello, hello! I made this card for the "All A Flutter" challenge over at www.gettingcricky.com. Head on over there to add a project of your own!
I usually do cutesy-type cards but for this challenge I wanted to do something a little more elegant - I think it turned out to be very pretty! xo
