Hi there

I've tried to get some crafting in this afternoon seen as the weather dulled over a little and my mind is swimming with ideas but can't get them down on paper (or card) before I forget ... any tips!

Here's 2 cards I've made for challenges that had 'gone under my radar' so before they finish I thought I'd get making:

I've used more Clearly Besotted products! This time the Fancy Florals stamps and dies (one of my first CBS sets) plus a new 'Congrats' word die. I've added Doodlebug sequins and paper from Echo Park.

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

A Gem of A Challenge - 'Spring is in the Air'
Addicted to Stamps and More - 'Anything Goes'

Next up is a card using a pre-coloured digi image from Pollycraft and it's to enter The Card Concept Challenge where the requirement is 'Use an Umbrella'. (I'm thinking Free Style collage for my make). I printed 2 copies of the image then fussy cut the umbrella and added the second one on 3d adhesive to add some extra dimension. 

The sentiment is computer generated with the 'sending' stamped using Clearly Besotted Happy Days set. The papers and sequins are both Doodlebug from Craft Mojo.

I'm also going to pop another entry in over at Simon Says Stamp where their theme this week is 'Animal Antics'
