A few new goodies

Just a few cards I made today using some of my new stuff!

My first card is for a huge amount of challenges!!! CC357 to use Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red, F4A99 to use something both warm and cold on a valentine's card (the colour combo included cold and warm colours so I just used that!), A Passion For Papertrey's Valentine's Challenge, Card Patterns Sketch #147 (but I'm a day late for that one!) and Make It Monday's Challenge #48 to use border dies to make a background. My new PTI goodies arrived on Monday and this new border die and stamp set were among the stash! I didn't have any cotton thread in the same kind of blue as Baja so had to hand stitch the borders using my DMC Floss instead and boy did it take forever!

My next card is for Color Throwdown's Challenge #174 to use Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight, River Rock and Soft Suede, Cupcake Challenge #174 to use something new (my stamp sets were both new in my PTI box this week!) and for Viva La Verve's Sketch #2 for January.

And my final card for today is for ColourQ's Challenge #119, Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #106 to use fabric, Friday MashUp's Challenge #41 to make a thank you card using patterned paper and Mojo Monday #223 for the sketch. I can't quite decide on this card. Sometimes I look at it and I think it's ok and other times I don't like it at all. I wanted to use my doilies stamps with the matching paper and fabric, but it just didn't quite work as I wanted. I may have another go at doing this colour challenge again, because I love these colours together , using something different instead (I did have to swap Going Gray for Basic Gray though as I have no GG left at all!). There's nothing exactly new on this card, but I haven't used my fabric on a card before or my hat pins, despite having them both for ages!

Here's the colour swatch for ColourQ's Challenge.


And here's my card for it.

And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by!
