Three Cards, three challenges

Hi everyone

I hope you've all had a good week, and that you're looking forward to the weekend, I know I am :o)  It seems like ages since Christmas, I do miss it, but it's also nice to start to get back into a routine again.

Today I have a few cards to share with you. The first is for two challenges, Unscripted Sketches, to use any sketch, and The Sweetest Thing's sketch #98. Here is my card..

and here are the two sketches that I used..

 I dug out my Cosmo Cricket Togetherness 6 x 6 pad for the papers, and used my Papertrey Ink 'Baby Button Bits' which is quite an old set, but new to me :o)  I also used the new Victorian border die and Labels 16 Nesties.  The longest part of the job was tying on the little bows, they were quite fiddly, plus those tiny little buttons.

My next two cards are for Lucy Abram's sketch challenges.  Her sketches are fab, I really do hope she carries on doing them.  The first card is for her Day One Challenge, both cards are very quick and easy.  I had a few minutes to play with my Lawn Fawn, 'My Silly Valentine' so decided to make a couple of very quick cards..

I'm not sure if you can really see but the little apple was cut out using Basic Grey Origins green grid paper, and then covered with glossy accents, and the little leaf was coloured in using some green Stickles.  I really LoVe that little apple, it's adorable!

The next card is for Lucy's Day 4 sketch challenge...

This is a 3 x 3 mini card, again using Cosmo Cricket papers.  Don't those little pears look so cute all dotty?!   The sentiment reads, 'we make a perfect pear', not 'we make perfect pear' as it looks!!  Every time I took the picture the ribbon would move!

So, I will be back tomorrow with a card for Etsy Inspiration Challenge, so don't forget to pop by!  I always love your visits, just remember to say hi so that I know you've popped in!
