My Time to Craft, Cute Card Thursday & Spoon Full of Sugar Challenges

3 challenges today! I'm intending on doing lots more cards today as the weather is awful here and I'm feeling pretty low so mass distraction is needed! Here is my first challenge design for My Time to Craft. The challenge is "jeans". My Bookwormabella is wearing her pedal pusher jeans so I thought she'd be great for this challenge. She's coloured in with watercolour pencils and cut out with oval scalloped nesties. The papers are all from a Papermania pad and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. The sketch is kind of based on one from Cupcake Craft Challenges from ages ago.

I'm going to start making cards for the craft show I'm doing in July as I'm up to date on all my card orders and my personal cards so I've got a chance to get going on some others.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Stamping Bella); Watercolour pencils; Papers (Papermania); Assorted cardstock; Nesties; Sentiment (Craftwork Cards)

This second card is for Cute Card Thursday who's challenge is pink and brown- one of my fav colour combinations. This card uses a stamp from the Penny Black T for Transparent sets and is coloured with watercolour pencils and Crystal Stickles. Cut out with my newest nesties. The papers are from Papermania I think. Most other embellies are Poppicrafts but big ribbon was recycled off an old chocolate box.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Penny Black); Watercolour pencils; Crystal Stickles; Paper (Papermania); Assorted cardstock; Nesties; Ribbons (Poppicrafts & recycled); Flowers & brads (Poppicrafts)

Finally card for today is A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge - the theme being "How Old!" ie to make a card with a number on it. I had to make a card for my friend's nephew so here it is! I used a High Hopes stamp coloured with copics. I cut round the image leaving the circle in the hoop to provide a background for the number. Number and lettering are a Sizzix strip alphabet. The paper I think I got from Banana Frog.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (High Hopes); Copics; Assorted cardstock; Paper (Banana Frog); Sizzix alphabet; Gems (Lakeland)
