Challenges Galore!

Happy Sunday Folks!

Hope you're all having a fab weekend! I survived my Brownie experience yesterday....I was tasked with supervising the circus skills equiptment....unfortuantly for me this was a very popular area with the Brownies! I think I probably saw all 550 of them at some point in the day!!

Today has been a lot more sedate....a trip to Tescos....some housework (boring!!) and some crafting!! I also decided to do some blog surfing to find some new challenge blogs to add to the ones I already join each week. There are soooo many out there!!

Inspired by all the DT cards I've seen today I got stuck in.....

I have to say that I am sooo pleased with this card (despite those polka dots giving me a bit of a headache!!) I've used blue backing paper, along with that fab polka dot paper. I've used a Digi Doodles vintage car image along with a Papermania stamped image and I think they look quite cute together. My little mechanic is fixed on the card using 3D sticky pads to make him look like hes in front of the car!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Digi Doodles Challenge - work related (hes a mechanic!!)
Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C137 - Happy Birthday
Truely Scrumptious - anything goes

Now for a card that I'm not so keen on....

This one hasn't quite turned out how I'd like it to....but hey ho! Along with the green backing paper and patterned papers, I've also used this quite LOTV teddy bears picnic image and some beautiful green organza. My image is coloured with my Promarkers.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Lili's Little Fairies - bear essentials
Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge - anything goes for kids
Tuesday Throwdown - material

Pop by all the challenge blogs mentioned to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created for these challenges.

I've also found some more fab challenges to keep me busy this week!! Pop by and see what I've been getting up to!!

Thanks for popping by today, its so lovely to see you!

Very sweet card for our Anything Goes challenge. Any child would love it! Thanks for sharing it with us at Send a Smile 4 Kids and also for your kind comment and promise to send some cards in. Since you are sending from overseas, could you please send them to one of our Canadian addresses? They do not get as many cards as the US addresses and so would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks again! Karen SAS4Kids

Mary J said...

That guy card is fab Wedgie! Brilliant layout and the second is sooo sweet - perhaps a few flowers around the bottom right corner of the image to bring the colours together? But I love it anyway!

Sarah said...

Fab male card Wedgie - you've certainly got great depth with the mechanic.

You're second card is so sweet as well.


PS - Been wandering back through your blog and Larry the Lemon looks fab, bet the smell is amazing!!
