Challenge time!

Evening Everyone! What a lovely day it's been today! Plus England won their "do or die" match! I'm not a footy fan - never have been and I don't watch the England matches either....but I'm always amazed at the comments that I get from other people when I say that. Apparently it's awful that I don't want to support my country.....even though I don't enjoy the sport! All I can say is that I'd prefer to be crafting!

Anyway, thats my little grip over with...on to today's challenges...I've been slack again this week...and as usual I'm blaming my computer! I haven't been able to download the photos onto my computer, which is obviously a bit of a problem!

I'm kinda sorted now, so here is my first card.....

This card has been designed for two challenges - Winter Wonderland who gave me the theme of festive trees and Allsorts who provided me with the fab layout. You should pop over to both blogs - the DT have created some wonderful cards.

I've used a cute little tree topper for the festive tree theme, and I've also used a tree patterened backing paper. I love this sketch, I think it looks wonderful and I will be using it again!

My second card is for the Creative Cottage Challenge blog this week, which has the theme of pearls and swirls......

I was sooooo excited when I popped over to their blog this morning to see the challenge and the gorgeous DT cards...guess what...I was the random person picked for last week's prize! I'm so lucky as I love the Creative Cottage products. I've already contacted the lovely Tracy and she has sent me my prize.....the Sending Love kit....and as you can see I've already put it to good use! Thank you ladies, I love my new kit! I love the pink colour used in this kit and I think it works really well with my blue swirls and pearls! I've given the little bear a lift by using 3D sticky pads behind the heart.

Right, I've just realised how late it is and my bed is calling me!

Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx
