Pink and green!

Hi everyone. Hope you're all OK and recovered from half term!! I've made a couple of relatively quick cards today as I've been busy continuing with my big clear out this week in preparation for moving. Who knew one tiny house could harbour such a load of old clutter?!

This first card is for a friend of mine who has twin girls. They're still only very young so I figured I could get away with sending one card! This cute koala is by Whipper Snapper stamps and I coloured with copics. The big balloon is by Woodware and I masked it and overstamped to get 2 balloons. The sentiment is from the "Tags and Tickets" clear sheet by Hero Arts. I did a bit of doodling around the edge and finished with a ribbon slider.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Allsorts- "tag, ticket or label"
Crafty Catz- "charming bear"

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Whipper Snapper, Hero Arts, Woodware); Copics; Doodling; Nesties; Papers (Making Memories); Ribbon slider (Poppicrafts); Ribbon (recycled)

This second card is for... wait for it... .Mother's Day!! lol. I coloured my PB hedgie with copics and cut out with labels nestie. The papers are all by Papermania, as is the sentiment, from their Mother's Day kit from a few years back. These beautiful flowers are from an Ebay shop in the US.

I'd like to enter this for the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday- "sketch"
Penny Black- "pink, green & yellow"
Secret Crafter- "Mother's Day"
Stamp Something- "Spring"

Crafty stash used: Image (Penny Black); Copics; Papers (Papermania); Sentiment (Papermania); Nesties; Flowers (Ebay)

Hope you're all having a good start to your week. Hope you enjoyed your visit! x

Thank you for your supportive comments. I hope you got my email? Both your cards are lovely. I love that koala. Think I may have to add him to my list of need to buys!! I only have a couple printed Linda sent me.
Hope you are not over doing it with the sorting & packing?!
