A dare, a challenge and one for luck

I managed a couple of challenges before bed last night as I have a couple of orders to do, but was too tired to blog. The DCM Little Extra on Tuesday was
This week we are hoping to inspire you with the modern and tradional gifts for the5th Anniversary, which is Wood or Silverwarewhich has been randomly picked- just to keep you on your toes ! :)Do with it what ever you wish, it doesn't have to be aniversary card, just inspired by the gift theme.

I only just got this one in before the new dare comes out today! Papers are from the Antique Cream 6 x 6 Papermania pad and the glasses are from a Thin Cuts die.

The next card is for the challenge on the Cute Card Thursday blog. This is the remit this week Gems and JewelsThis week our challenge is to use gems or jewels on your card, it's as easy as that!The pink gingham paper is from the 'Kate' pad by Making Memories and everything else is from my stash. The image is Penny Black and was stamped for me by my friend Jo a little while ago. I wanted to see if I could do them justice with my colouring before I succumbed and bought some and Jo sent me loads! I decided that they were too cute to use which is why they haven't seen the light of day until now. :)

And here is the one for luck! I bought some stamps last week and this is the first time I've had the chance to use them.

The image is another stamp by Pixiedust on ebay. Sally-Ann is a fab seller and I love her stamps. I coloured the image with my sparkly water colours from the Works (UK) and matted it onto pale pink card. The papers are this time I think are by Dovecraft. I've lost the front cover from the pack which is why I'm not sure LOL Ribbon is from RIbbon Oasis and the crystals are from my stash.
I still have some cards to make so hopefully I will be able to use a couple more challenges for those.
Thanks for reading, take care.
