Crafts 4 eternity, Cutie Sunday and a surprise prize!

The challenge over at Crafts 4 Eternity is the above sketch. I'm carrying on my theme of making Easter cards (mainly using my lovely new green paper!)

So here is my take on the sketch. I have used this fun Penny Black duck coloured with watercolour pencils. I cut out with scalloped circle nesties and have added a little doodling to the edge and then mounted on green card. The 3 green papers were from my Papermania pad and doubled mounted on assorted green cardstock. The sentiment is Pink Petticoat again with some doodling. Finally I tied round a sheer yellow ribbon.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Penny Black); Watercolour pencils; Paper (Papermania); Assorted cardstock; Nesties; Black fine liner; Sentiment (Pink Petticoat); Ribbon (recycled)

Another sketch, this time over at Cutie Sunday. This is my first time on both these blogs!

Another Easter card but this time not green though this was from another new set of Papermania paper I got. I really love the colours on this one! Stamp is cute Penny Black hedgie coloured in with watercolour pencils, cut out with nesties, doodled around and triple mounted with cardstock. For the horizontal strip, I ran some blue card through my Big Shot with the Stylized Flowers embossing folder and then mounted on brown card. Sentiment is Pink Petticoat with some added doodling and flowers and gems to finish. I changed the sentiment's place as I thought it went better on the right with my image.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Penny Black); Watercolour pencils; Paper (Papermania); Assorted cardstock; Nesties; Black fine liner; Embossing folder (Cuttlebug); Sentiment (Pink Petticoat); Flowers (Ebay); Tiny gems

Finally a big surprise arrived yesterday! Back in August of last year I filled out an online questionnaire for Craft Stamper (I vaguely remember doing it!) Yesterday a box of crafting goodies arrived saying I had won but due to an admin error I was only getting my package now!! I was really chuffed. This is just some of the stuff I won but there were some other bits like chipboard and colour sprays too! I never win anything so I was really pleased!
