A bit of this and a bit of that

Just a mixed batch of cards I made this morning.

This first one is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #109 and Friday MashUp's Challenge #70 to use a vintage theme and/or stick pins. I bought a few bags of stick pins a couple of years ago and have never opened them, so this challenge was an ideal opportunity to dig them out the bottom of the drawer.

My next card is for Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #170 and F4A128 to use 2-step stamping. My background is made up of 2 different stamps and the bunches of grapes in theory are made up of 4 little stamps!

And my final card for today is SO not me at all and whilst I think it's ok, it fits the challenges I used, I want to add more to it. There's just too much white and not enough colour LOL Me and CAS cards are not the best of friends. Anyway this is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #129 for the sketch, Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #228 to make a clean and simple card and for CC386 to use Baja Breeze, Summer Starfruit, which I swapped for Crushed Curry, a retired SU colour and Primrose Petals, which I swapped for Autumn Rose from PTI.

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