Oh No It's Friday!!!

And that means I'm back at work on Monday! You know these half term holidays go SO quickly. I still have my masters assignment to finish, Literacy books to mark and maths planning to do. Somewhere I also want to find some time to do a bit more crafting, get my new Kaisercraft boxes finished (started one for my PTI big dies that don't fit in my other Kaisercraft drawers, but not started on the other one yet!), paint my nails, tidying up my mess, put the ironing away properly that my ironing man brought back on Thursday and finish my book. I promised myself that I would read 3 books this half term and the one I'm on would be the third! Can't my boss give me an extra day off?

Anyway enough waffle....on to my cards for today. This first one is for Play Date Café's Challenge #119 to use black, white and a splash of hot pink and for SC372 for the sketch. I did have to stamp my upside down butterflies using stamped off black ink as it just looked odd without it, and I really love this one! Here's the inspiration picture for Play Date Café.


And here's my card for it.

My next card is for Friday Mashup Challenge #46 to use the given sketch and/or add a vintage style (I think this is kind of vintage/antique looking), Color Throwdown's Challenge #179 to use Poppy Parade, Crumb Cake and Blushing Bride and for Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #204 to use flowers. Here's the inspiration picture from Color Throwdown.


And here's my card for it...

And that's all for this post folks. Thanks for stopping by!
