A Mixed Bunch

Just a few mixed random cards I made this week!

This first one is for Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #133 Anything Goes and for ColourQ's Challenge #146 to use these colours, which were just the perfect colours I need to make my NQT a card for passing her NQT year and is now a fully fledged teacher! (I was mentoring her this year and it has been real fun seeing her grow as a teacher. She has made me a very proud mentor!)


Anyway here's my card.


Recipe:


My next card is for Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #168 for the sketch with numbers (hope the 2 in my HB2U counts as enough!), Papertake Weekly's Challenge All Things Girlie, Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #226 to use fairies and Play Date Café's Challenge #141 to use these colours. I found the mint green hard to add in as it's not a colour I especially like and, therefore, have very little of. I did find some ribbon in my stash and the plain sheet in one of my Echo Park pads and it was just enough along with the dress of my fairy (another birthday pressie from last week!).


And here's my card.


Recipe:


And my final card for today is for Friday MashUp's Challenge #68 to use their sketch and the lazy Summer day theme and for Cupcake Crafts Challenge #201 Le Tour de France. This is the only bicycle image I have and I wanted to make a girlie coloured card with it. After hunting through a huge mountain of patterned papers I settled on this retired stack of Razzleberry Lemonade - such bright, fun colours.


Recipe:


And that's all for today folks! Thanks for stopping by.
