I've had another crazy week of working, working and more working and unfortunately it's my crafty time that suffers so I've had a good old play this afternoon. Oh and I woke up to a wonderful surprise this morning ... I'd won last week's Sketch Saturday challenge!!!! Arrrrgh ... so thrilled as I wasn't sure about the card I'd made but you can check it out here

The weather has been absolutely naff today so what better place to hang out than in my crafty cupboard. (It is actually a cupboard and one of these days I'll pop some photos on here to show you - it's my Tardis!)

So my first card is to enter this week's Less is More challenge where it's a sketch one and I've combined it with the colour scheme challenge at ColourQ and the 'Lovely Dovey' theme over at CAS on Sunday. You are going to think I'm obsessed with the Eiffel Tower at the moment but I bought this die a couple of weeks ago to make a commission card and I just love it.

Card Recipe:

Cutting Tools: MFT Die-namics - Eiffel Tower, Memory box - Heart on a bow & Clouds
Papers: From my stash
Sentiment: Clearly Besotted - Paired Up stamp set
Sizzix dotty embossing folder & some gems from my stash.


Next up is another combined entry to Muse, which I've got to admit I've never entered before so hope I've got it right, and Color Throwdown. I loved the design of the Muse card so I've used that as inspiration but I decided on butterflies rather than hearts and although I've used the grey background I've matched the other colours to the colour palate at Color Throwdown

This used Papers from my stash, Butterfly die set from Clearly Besotted and sentiment from the Geometric style stamp set which is also Clearly Besotted plus gems, twine and fluted border from my stash.


Ok that's it for now but I'm still playing so may be back later or tomorrow.  Enjoy your evening and thanks for stopping by.
