Crafter's Companions and other Challenges...

Good Morning! I have a sore throat today, so have stayed in this morning catching up on a few challenges. My children both have coughs so they have been taking it easy this morning as well. 

The first card I have is for the Crafter's Companion challenge 'Here comes Summer'. I used the new Humphrey's Corner CD-ROM. I love it!! I have also ordered the stamps, but they haven't arrived yet. I LOVE Humphrey's Corner, I have wanted some craft stuff to come out for so long! I was so excited when it was released last week!!. For this challenge I thought about summer colours, and I think pink and yellow together are so summery.

This is an A5 card, I used an Xcut boarder punch, and the stamp is from a Penny Black set, I used a Viva Decor pearl pen to make the flourish and finished it off with some roses.

The next card is for Cupcake Craft Challenge, this was a colour challenge to use yellow, green, orange and white-

To make this card I took a 5 1/2" x 9" piece of orange card and scored it at 2", 4", 5 1/2", 7" and 8". The folded it, to make the steps. The acetate is 5 1/2" x 11" folded in half, then stuck on the front and back of the base. All the flowers and animals are cut from one sheet of We R Memory Keepers 12" x 12". I love these cute little animals.

And finally I have a card for the Ooh La La Challenge-Happy Birthday-

I used the Humphrey CD-ROM again for this card. I also used an embossing folder and another stamp from the Penny Black set.

Now I am going to go back to laundry and housework, and my son wants to make a Father's day card so I think we will be doing that after lunch...

Thanks for stopping by.
