As promised, more challenges are done. I actually did some of them yesterday but didn't get done as many as I liked. Anyway, here goes:

Challenge 5-Sugar & Spice...and all things nice Anything edible for this challenge please. LO'S and cards welcome Image by Pink Petticoat coloured and doodled with a pink Sakura glitter pen and mounted onto two shades of pink card. The greeting is stamped using a Seedee stamp and bright pink ink.
August template 1-3 squares

and a template for the card makers you know you can do WHAT YOU LIKE!!
Backing paper is from Pink Petticoat (see above), flowers are from Craftwork Cards and the buttons and sticky ribbon are Anita's/Papermania. The bow is tied using a satin ribbon from Ribbon Oasis.
August Challenge 7-Touchy Feely
We want cards and LO's good enough to touch, feel and stroke. It's all about textures for this challenge.
The backing squares are a linen feel paper from Lakeland (which I've had in a drawer for ages and just found again!) The blue card is embossed with the Happy Birthday plate from Cuttlebug, the Scottie dog is cut from glitter card and the collar is a beautiful soft velvet ribbon from the Limeade Twist mini mix from Ribbon Oasis.
August Challenge 6-A little Gem
we would like you to make a CARD or LO with GEMS use as many or as few as you like
The flowers on this card are two different sized Page Frills by Doodlebug mounted onto black and white card, the sentiment is stamped in white and double mounted and the card is finished off with organza ribbon.
August Challenge 9-Button It!
Cards, LO's or whatever you want for this challenge as long as you use buttons. New work only please xx
The stamp is from the Seedee Vintage set (and has to be one of my favourite stamps) stamped in lilac and mounted first onto lilac paper from an old Papermania pack, then onto lilac Stardream card. Buttons are from Crafts by Carolyn and the greeting is stamped and mounted onto foam pads to give it a 3D effect.
And last but not least (for now)
August Challenge 10 - Pick a Card
any card............ and then make a card with it ooo MAGIC!!!
Mini cards mounted onto red Bazzill and gold card and tied with a pale gold organza ribbon. The greeting was printed on the pc.

Well that's it for now. I have work to do and I want to try to do an hour tidying the garden.

BFN. xx
