Some breathing space!

 I needed to take a wee break so apologies if I have not visited your blog recently. I finally got time to make two cards last night and here is the first



This card is for the Sugar Bowl challenge which is a sketch from Erika. I have used Grace from the Simply Adorables range, she is just beautiful. The papers are Basic Grey Kioshi and the sentiment is Stampin' Up!
I am also entering this card into
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Fab'n'funky - girly




My second card is using one of the fabulous images from Kraftin' Kimmie - meet Curtis!


The papers are DCWV and the sentiment comes with the image. The images on both cards are coloured with Promarkers. I had my first attempt at a rosette flower, it isn't perfect but I like it. The buttons are from my stash.
 I am entering this card into the following challenges
Crafty Emma - Men only
Little Claire's - flowers
Sugar Creek Hollow - handmade flowers
Daring Cardmakers - create at least one embellishment
Passion for Promarkers - food and drink (the fish is the food) - hope that counts lol!
Mojo Monday - sketch
Kraftin Kimmie - anything goes

thank you for visiting, I hope to get catch up on commenting next week x
