Sweet Sketch Wednesday #89

Another brilliant sketch by Arlana. For this card I've used new papers that I've just bought. They are Prima papers called Sparkling Spring. The image is a Mo Manning digital image called Teacup Fairy, how cute is she. I've used glamour dust on her wings and on the flowers. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the centre strip and just added some tiny hearts on the corners of the card, and the sentiment is Stampin Up.

Happy Valentines Day xxx

I got into a bit of a flap last night as it hit me that I hadn't made my hubby's valentines card yet. I wanted to make something a little bit different and I'd found a brilliant tutorial on how to make a 4 drawer card box (Jacqui your tutorial is brilliant and so easy to follow) you can find her tutorial here. I used a Whiff of Joy Elisabeth Bell stamp for the main image, the paper I've used is a Nitwits download called "From the Heart" and I used my Martha Stewart heart punches. The pearl hearts were from the Hobby House. I have also given hubby some little treats in each drawer (marzipan hearts). He loves marzipan, but I may have to help him eat some of them. Because it is so near to valentines day there are quite a few challenges out there so I am being greedy and am going to enter 5 challenges. These are as follows:-

Whiff of Joy - Love is in the Air
A Spoonful of Sugar - Lets see some love
Stampin' for the Weekend - St Valentines Day
and Sketch Saturday - No 142 helped me with the layout of my easel card to go on the top of my box.

Less is More Week 1 colour challenge - Pink, Black & White

I've just found a new challenge blog called "Less is More". The blogs aim is to promote the making of classic Clean and Simple cards. They have only just started, so I thought I'd give their first challenge a go. The image on my card is from Pink Petticoat. I've added glamour dust to the middle of the cake and the candles on the top, and only used black and pink on a white card. So easy to make. I look forward to seeing what the other challenges are.

Arlana has provided another great sketch for this weeks challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. For my card I have used Papermania Blueberry Hill papers and a brilliant digital image by the talented Mo Manning. How cute is this picture. Its called "Buds". The sentiment is by Stampin Up. I've added some adhesive stones on the dogs collar and cotton candy stickles to her cute little pants.
