A Little Sunday Trio

Happy Sunday all and hope you are enjoying a sunny crafty day.
I've 3 cards to share and I'm not entirely sure about them ... 
I'm struggling with toothache which hasn't helped my mojo today
but as I've made the effort I'm going to drop them in for a few challenges.

So first up is for a new challenge to me; having seen
a fair amount of red, white, black and umbrellas in blogland 
I had to check out what was going on!!!

Here's my first play over at The Challenge #31

Card Recipe:
Stamplorations: Vignette - Ever After
Clearly Besotted: Je T'aime, Baby Shower & Notebook die
(I didn't have an umbrella small enough so accented the card with red
hearts from the baby shower set & Doodlebug Twine)
My Favourite Things: On the diagonal stencil - tone on tone
to add little interest to the card base.

I've also linked this card up at the never-ending
Anything Goes Challenge at Stamplorations

Next up is to enter the Merry Monday Challenge
sorry ladies I missed last week as I couldn't find vintage
Then I found this little artpad from Lili of The Valley!
So I'm using one of their gorgeous images including a little dog.
He looks just like my own dog but mine has more black and white.

The sentiments are from Uniko Studio: Simply Said Christmas
and Peace on Each stamp sets
Design paper is American Crafts

Last one for today is a second entry to Inkspirational
where it's a space theme.

I couldn't resist inking up this 'Blast Off' set from Clearly Besotted
on a moon effect circle created with distress ink in faded jeans
then spritzed with water and perfect pearls to make a shimmer-effect.


I'd also like to link this up at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday challenge
where it's Clean and Simple this week.
