Sharing on Sunday

Just the last couple of cards for this weekend. I must try and find some time during the week to do a bit of crafting but I'm usually so shattered after a day teaching that I have no energy to do anything but read or play the computer! Anyway this first card is for Card Patterns Sketch #150 . I did move the ribbon as it didn't work where it was supposed to be! It is also for  Make It Monday's Challenge #50 to make a shaker card and Free For All #101 to use chocolate and kraft somewhere on your card. I just had to add some pink and vanilla well though!

Sunday's Stamped Backgrounds

Just a couple of cards I made today with stamped backgrounds, as opposed to using some of my huge hoard of patterned papers! This first one is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #4 for January - a CAS sketch which I turned into a non CAS card! You know I do don't CAS! This one is also for SUO Challenge #37 to use your favourites from the Stampin' Up mini catalogue or main catalogue. My mini goodies will be arriving here tomorrow, but I did get a couple of freebie sets a little while ago for participating in different events and this one is a cute set called Charming. I used the flowery circle and tulip type flower to make some background paper and although the tulips are not quite right, I do love how it came out. I also used the colours from CR84FN47 to use red, pink and light blue. Here's their colour swatch... And here's my card for it. Recipe: Charming from SU Curly Cute from Stampin' Up Baja Breeze Ink/C
