2 cards for 3 challenges!

Charisma Cardz 'Hugs and Cuddles' & The Pink Elephant 'All that Glitters'

Good morning, well I did manage a lie in yesterday after my night out and yes, poor hubby got up ready to take Ryan to band but ...... it wasn't on because it is half term, lol - Poor Glen!! Never mind, at least Ryan remembered so they didn't leave the house or anything but Glen did wake me up to tell me .... hmmm I do love him really!
Ok, so here are a couple of cards for today. This is one for a lady at work. She loved the Valentine's cards I made her daughters and asked me to make a birthday card for a friend of her daughters. I have used this gorgeous Whiff of Joy image and gone slightly over the top again with my glamour dust, lol.

I have made the sentiment on my computer and used my nesties. The papers are some of my total favourites by Making Memories (hate using them, lol) and the flowers are from the fab Poppicrafts. I got the little heart charm from a craft show I went to in Doncaster last year (really need to buy loads of this sort of thing next month in Harrogate).


Cute Card Thursday 'Signs of Spring' & The Pink Elephant 'All that Glitters'

Here is my 2nd card for today and it one for a new home. I thought the Pink Petticoat image and colours would fit nicely with the theme on CCT and it certainly sparkles enough for The Pink Elephant. The papers were from a pack by Papermania and I got them in the sale a while ago for a really silly price - love a bargain! I don't often use yellows and orange but it was a nice for a change from my usual pinks, purples etc.

The ric rac is from one of the christmas ribbon sets that Papermania did a couple of months ago, always handy to have in. Now look closely ... yes .... peel offs!!!! Not sure when I last used them but again, handy to have in your stash. These little holographic flowetrs and 'dots??' were just what this card needed to give it a little more bling!
The sun is shining here and it is a gorgeous day - hope you all enjoy your Sunday :o)
