A Sunday Trio

Happy Sunday, I've a trio of cards to share today which I made
on Friday but ran out of time to post and I need to enter them in 
a few challenges so here goes. 

First up is for the Muse Card Club using inspiration from a
super talented crafter, Marion Vagg - here's my take

Card Recipe:
Clearly Besotted: Love Birds & Paired Up dies
and sentiment from Happy Birthday set
MFT Die-Namics: Fishtail Flags & Pierced Rectangles
Tonic: Flower punch (not used in years - glad I didn't bin it!)

This card is to enter at 
Addicted to CAS #59 - Green
NBUS #4 - Darnell's superb challenge to encourage us to use
our New But UNUSED Schtuff!
Timeout Challenges #27 - CAS, black & white with a SPLASH of a colour

Card Recipe:
Lawn Fawn: Monster Mash (NBUS)
Sizzix: Circle framelits
MFT Die-Namics: Sentiment strips
Derwent Inktense pencils for colouring images and creating
the green borders (thanks to a video tip from Jennifer McGuire)

... and last but least for today is my entry to this week's
