SCSC - Spring has Sprung

The SCSC theme for this week has been set by the very talented Donna and its Spring has Sprung, any spring like creations or spring colours. I chose these papers by Pebbles Inc because I thought the colours were spring like but now I'm thinking more summery.

Flowers are from my stash and match the papers although in the photo the green has come out a lot darker then it really is.

SCSC

Yes I know it's a Christmas card and its only February but I've decided to try and make at least one Christmas card a week then I won't get fed up making a load when it comes to Christmas. Anyway the card is for the SCSC which this week has been set by Kim and is Recycling. The recycled bit on my card is the little Made With Love charm which was on a Christmas pressie I gave my sister and she gave the charm back to re use. Papers I think are Pebbles Inc and the image is from the blog candy I won from Paul and I have coloured it with Promarkers.

ABC/ CCT

I have made this card for this weeks ABC challenge which is Z for Zzzzzz Sleeping and the CCT challenge which is Metallica, use some metal on your card i.e. charms, wire, spacers, eyelets, metal coloured card, fabric or paper etc. I have used two metal brads in the bottom left corner, so I think this counts. Seeing as the weather has been so cold I thought I would make a nice bright summery card to warm myself up. I have coloured my PB image with Promarkers and the papers are Pebbles Inc and the sentiment is an Elzybells stamp. Brads from stash.

Gift Tag

Well I've really cheated on this one I've combined three challenge, PBSC which was to make a circle something, so I have made an opening gift tag, it was originally going to be a card but I've only got the small nesties and it was too small for a card so decided to use it as a gift tag. The second challenge is CCT which is to make something to do with Valentines so I think I might just scrape through with this one, it has got hearts on it. The third challenge is PTW which is to use Hearts or Flowers or both on your project. I have coloured my PB image with Promarkers, the papers are Doodlebug and the card, ribbon and brad are from my stash.

SCSC meets Cutie Sunday

I have combined two challenges with this card. The first is the SCSC which has been set by Sue and is At The Zoo and they want you to use a zoo element on your project. When I saw this I thought, omg what am I going to do for this one then I remembered my little monkeys from CC Designs. The second challenge is Cutie Sunday which is the sketch. I have coloured my image with Promarkers and the papers are from Doodlebug. The sentiment has been made up with stamps from CC Designs but I wish that I had thought to use blue ink to stamp it.
