Lots of thank yous....

Hello there...hope you're having a good day!

First off...I am so chuffed...remember those yummy strawberry cupcakes that I entered in the "its a gift" challenge over at Allsorts last week?? Welllll.....they got picked as one of the Top 5 for that challenge! I'm so pleased! Thank you Brenda and the lovely Allsorts ladies!!



Right, on with today's cards....I've been a little busy crafting as I have a few thank you cards that I want to send out....I have had a very lucky August as some of you know and I wanted to say thanks!

Here is my first card....

 
I've used some plain blue paper and some really pretty floral paper to create this card. I have used some cute sewing stamped images, some punched lace paper and some cute pins. I've added a little faux stitching along the paper lace with a blue pen and added a computer generated sentiment.
 
I've coloured my images using my Promarkers:
Satin
China Blue
Rose Pink
 
Plus I have paper pieced some gorgeous old wrapping paper onto the dress image. Its wrapping paper that I've had since my Birthday last year....I love keeping pretty paper as you never know when you might get to use it!
 
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
Cute Card Thursday - a stitch in time
Passion for Promarkers - needles and pins (use stitching and at least one pin)
Oldie but a Goodie - paper piecing (my old thing is that gorgeous wrapping paper!)
 
I have also created this card today....
 
 
I just love this cute LOTV image.....the mice are soooo cute!! I've shaped the top of the card and added some plain blue paper and some pretty pink patterned paper. I've stamped my image onto plain white card and coloured it with my Promarkers. Finally I added my computer generated sentiment.
 
 
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
Allsorts - anything but square
Lili's Little Fairies - anything but square
 
Pop by all the blogs mentioned to see all the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this week!
 
Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx
