Fab'n'Funky Challenges are having another Candy Giveaway this week in lieu of there being no challenge, so why don't you pop over and add your name to Mr Linky because you never know, you might just win it!!!
I have had several minutes between chores and to stop myself going into a "nag fest" with the family about their inactivity, I decide to make a few cards using a fab selection of postcards I obtained from Crafts U Print (link HERE) and this is what I came up with:
Ribbon, pins, button, gem & metal charm from my stash
Border: Scalloped edgabilities
Ribbon & fibres from various packaging!
Butterfly: Marianne Creatable die
Stamps: free with a magazine
Button & gems from my stash
I made them both using the fab sketch from ICS (Inspirational Card Sketches) and have also been a fan of Dawn's sketch and projects but unfortunately haven't played along much this year . . . but this will change in 2012 as I AM making more time for me and things that I want to do as 2011 was taken up heavily by my family for different reasons. I uset to be on the ICS DT a year or so ago but my stint ended . . as is the way . . but would love to have another "crack at the whip" as it were!
In the 1st card, I have flipped the sketch but followed it (ish) in the 2nd card and both cards have been further distressed with inks. They were quick and simple cards to make . . . something I should do more often!
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Inspirational Card Sketches (ICS) - sketch plus a DT call
Flutterby Wednesdays - butterflies on both cards!
Carisma Cards - anything goes
Ladybug Crafts Ink - BINGO - I have used the bottom line on both cards
Well now I really have to tidy away my crafting stash as I will need the table for Christmas . . . or I suppose we could eat on our laps . . . ! Will be back tomorrow to share some of my Christmas cards with you,
