Card for a Cause :-)

I have made this card for a Post pal
The theme this week on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge is 'Happy Mail' We are asked to make a card for a sick child and post it, the difficult thing is choosing a child !! I have several cards so will be sending quite a few :-)
I am also entering this card for the Spoonful of Sugar Challenge whose theme is 'Touchy Feely' ( fab theme and very original !! )I used a velvet paw print ribbon and fun flocked the toes, the image is also has 3 layers so very 3D :-) I also added a little bell and I'll also leave the card overnight in Jessie's basket prior to posting to give it an authentic 'doggy' smell lol :-) Lots of senses stimulated there !! :-)
I used the fab sketch by Nikki on the One Stop Craft Challenge. I changed it to make a square card, I didn't mean to but when I took the card to the trimmer I had chopped it before I realised what I was doing !! I did mean to just score it down the middle !! duh !! Hope ya don't mind Nikki !!

The doggy image I used is a brand new one ( for me ) from Lili Of The Valley :-) I did feel that as I am a GD for 2 months I should make a card for their challenge using their stuff, but couldn't wait to ink this one up :-) Isn't he cute !!
The background paper and panel at the side are DCWV Pet's Stack, The ribbon was from Meiflower

I kept the card quite simple, the paper is busy enough !! :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

There are only a couple of days left to enter my blog candy, you can see it at the top of my blog :-)

Happy Birthday Mum :-)

It's not my Mum's birthday :-)

I made this card to enter the Stamp Something Challenge whose theme is 'Stamp Something for a Mum' I used Becky's fab sketch on the Sketch and Stash Challenge.My new thins are the checked paper, just bought that, and the flowers are new too :-) It also qualifies for the Pink Elephant Challenge whose theme is 'Circles and Scallops' :-)

The cupcake is from the Simon Says Clear Stamps Savour Sweet Cupcakes set. I coloured it with copics, then smothered the topping with glue and sprinkled coconut ( ivory flower soft) and glitter all over it :-)
The brown paper is fron a Funky Fairy's Papercrafts download, as is the sentiment, the papers are from the 'In With The Old' set and the sentiment is from the Birthday Rounds set :-) The checked paper is from the DCWV The Glitter Sweet stack. I also used stardream card for the base card and the deckle edged strip.
I used my nesties to cut the circles and scallop shapes, the top one was chalked with pink pearlescent chalk from Pebbles inc and then it was sprayed with green glimmer mist, it looks yummy in real life :-)
The flower was a birthday gift from Heidi from the Simon Says Stamp Store (thanks darlin :-)). The sentiment is mounted in a SU hodgepodge hardware frame.
I also cut a corner swirl on my cricut and finished the whole thing off with some choccy drops that were in blog candy that I won in January :-)

Think thats all,,, :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one x x

I am so happy to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for the Lili Of The Valley Challenge. The theme this week is

Also they have this fabulous prize on offer :-

You have 2 weeks to enter the challenge so plenty of time :-) No excuse !! :-)

You are allowed to use anything on your creations, they don't have to be Lili Of The Valley, and as I didn't have anything ( notice the didn't !! Do now tho !! for the next one ,,, :-)) I used my old Penny Black stamp 'Grass Cake' This stamp has been neglected and collecting dust on my shelf for ages so I thought it was time to give her an inking :-) I coloured her with copics and then chalked the sky background with Pebbles inc shimmer chalk, they're just gorgeous !!
The checked paper and buttons are from Papermania, the pink paper is Basic Grey,I also used a little black magic coredinations for layering. The ribbon from my messy drawer :-( The text is also Penny Black.
