One, two, three

............challenges so I might just be up to date with the challenges I take part in :) I haven't even started the catch up on Just Bex yet, I think I may have to abandon May and start with June! So the first one is for Friday Sketchers # 4 by Heidi

I made this card for a forum birthday (I'm pretty sure the recipient doesn't read my blog so I'm quite safe) The backing paper is Basic Grey, the image is by Pink Petticoat, the flowers are Prima and other bits are from my stash so I'm not sure where it all came from!

My next card is for the Stamp Something challenge. This one is another sketch this time by Katharina.This card is for a friend's birthday. The papers used are by the English Paper Company, the Doodlebug paper frill is embellished with small self adhesive pearls, the flowers are Prima mounted onto silver mirri card and the sentiment is from the Stamp Boutique.

My third challenge is from Page Plans using a sketch by Renee

It's my sister in law's birthday in a couple of weeks so I thought I would get ahead as I am really busy with weddings and planning a surprise 70th birthday party for my mum. The papers are by Brenda Pinnick and were party of the fabby blog candy I won on Kath's blog The flowers are a mix of Papermania and Prima and the sentiment is a rub on.

My final card doesn't use a challenge but I thought I would show it anyway LOL It's a commission for a friend's son's 30th birthday.

I used my lovely 3 Bugs paper pad again (shock horror!) The waves under the kayak/canoe (not sure which it is :)) were done in Word Art and it actually says '30 today'. The die cuts are by Sizzix I think. This is the first time I've used any of them. I bought the packs when I first started card making about 5 years ago and finally opened the packet yesterday *blush*.

Back to work now, thanks for looking.
