4 Cards = Umpteen Challenges!

I am SOOOO glad this week is finally over. I had parents evening until 8 on Tuesday and again til 6 on Thursday and was completely exhausted on Friday. My throat was hurting like mad with all the extra talking I had to do! Now it's half term and I have a week to recuperate (and craft like mad! LOL)

So here's my first installment of the weekend. My first card is for Stacey's Curtain Call #16 to use Kraft, Real Red and Very Vanilla, Crazy for Challenges #24 to use Red as a main colour and Mercy's Sketch #60.
