It's been a blue weekend....
Yes... there's definitely a lot of blue around here this weekend! Not that I am feeling blue - just that I have been catching up on a few challenges and they are all blue!
Here's the first of my three challenge cards. This one is for the 'It's a Man's World' challenge on Cute Card Thursday, which is to make a card for the men/boys in your life. It's easy making a thankyou card for a girlfriend, a pretty image and a few flowers and that's fine. But what to use on a thankyou card for a man?
This cute fish is part of the 'Best Fishes' set from Pink Petticoat. The background papers came free with issue 28 of Papercraft Essentials magazine - I'm not usually a fan of free papers as they are usually shiny, but these are really nice! I just added a scalloped mat, some doodling and a simple sentiment.. a really quick card to make!
This next card is for the 'Dragons' callenge on the Lots To Do Challenges blog. It's the first time I've done one of their challenges, they seem to be a very artistic so I hope my cute little dragon will fit in with their challenge!
This cute little dragon was sent to me in a package of stamped images from a friend. I coloured him with Caran D'Ache Supracolor soft pencils to match the papers and mounted him on a scrap of golden yellow card. The background papers are from the 'Hopscotch Boy' range by K&Co. The circle sentiment is from a set of four by Cuddly Buddly, the smaller greeting is from the Celebration Messages set by See D's stamps.
This last card is for the 'Girly but Blue' challenge at Tilda & Co.
I love this sitting Tilda stamp, she is so cute! The background papers are from a pack by Papermania and I used my Nestabilities dies to cut the darker circle for her to sit on. The doodling was done with a white Uniball Signo pen. I just added a few flowers and dabbed some Stickles around the brads to give some sparkle. The rubon is by Pebbles Inc.
So there you go, three blue cards! I think it's time I tidied my desk and got out some pink stash!!
