What's the weather been doing for you all today? Appalling here with strong winds and lashing rain which meant one thing once dog-walk done and some housework ... hmmm bit of crafting.
I've three cards to show which are for various challenges so here goes:
This one is for my uncle (husband of Crafty American Auntie) so hoping she's too busy packing up her belongings for heading back to California once he's retired to search around my blog!
I've used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches so that's where I'll be heading in a moment.

Ribbon & Twine from my stash
Next up is a brand new colour challenge (for me) called Colour Me which I'm combining with my interpretation of the CASE Study challenge for this week. This Memory Box Tilda Flower die has been on my desk since the weekend when I tried my first bit of sponge daubing here but this time I've die-cut the shape using pearlised card and patterned paper from Echo Park. I've then 'painstakingly' re-inserted all the little petal bits then made a circle aperture for the sentiment, which is from Clearly Besotted. The green background image is from Uniko Studio (Background Builders - Circles). Yesterday I received some long awaited items from Craft Mojo ... Doodlebug sprinkles and sequins!!! Love them but may have gone a bit OTT with them as they are new but the photo on the colour challenge had lots of little dots!
My last card is quite similar to the previous one in that I've used the same Memory Box Tilda Floral die with re-inserted petals but I wanted to show you how extremely economical and versatile this sponge daubing with die cuts can be. This is the daubed die cut used in this card here which I've re-inserted into the negative made from the previous card above.
This time the card is to enter the Simon Says Stamp challenge where the theme is 'Glitter It'. I have used a Wink of Stella pen on the petals but because it's pearlised card it's not showing up on the photos clearly. I've also glittered and glossy accented the centre of the flower. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted - Geometric 1 stamped on to an MFT Sentiment Strip die-cut and the twine from my stash.
Think I better have a bit of a tidy up now as it looks like a bomb has hit my little crafty cupboard!
