Lost week...

I've had a really nasty cold for the last week and haven't felt much like doing anything crafty. I feel like I've lost a week! I hate that feeling and missed taking part in all the super challenges out there! Thankfully, my head feels a bit clearer now and I'm able to concentrate on cards without having a wad of tissues firmly clamped to my nose! It was so nice to sit down yesterday and make these two cards :)

This one was made from the sketch challenge at ISMAKI but then I realised it fits in with the Papertake 'flowers' challenge too! The background paper is by Paper Adventures... it's sparkly, though it doesn't show up in the photo. I handcut and punched the scallop strip behind the magnolia stamped image. I've had these huge flowers for ages so it was good to use them at last! I added extra sparkle to the flowers with dots of bright yellow stickles.



I needed something for this cute little Magnolia bear to sit on, so the frames challenge at Artygirlz was perfect! The white oval scallop frame was cut on the Craft Robo and I added some sheer ribbon with baby feet on and three pretty fabric daisies. The blue frame inner and greeting were printed on my pc. Don't you just love those cute weeny button brads!!!
