Back In The Challenge Swing!


Hope you are all having a good weekend and a happy Sunday.  I've got a touch of the "back to work blues" at the moment as it will be back to the office tomorrow for a full 50 hour week.  We've had more snow overnight and another couple of heavy-ish showers of the stuff today - nothing too much to worry about though, which is good.  One bonus of going back to work is that I shall get an uninterrupted 30 mins each morning to blog hop and have a catch up!

So, thought I would have a go at just two or three challenges today and my first card to show you is for Cute Card Thursday No 93 Sketchtastic

For this card I have used some gorgeous papers that I received for Christmas from my pal Zippy (thanks babe), some DCWV card stock and the cutest, teeniest Penny Black mouse ....





















My second card today is also from a sketch and is for the ever fabulous Sketch Saturday Challenge - I must again take the opportunity of thanking the Sketch Saturday gang for making me so welcome during my December GDT with them.  Simonne has produced a really elegant sketch and it was a joy to work with.

As well as entering this card for the Sketch Saturday Challenge I would also like to enter this one into this weeks Totally Gorjuss Challenge


I've used a Tilda (I think she is the New Year Tilda) and a mix of Papermania, Joanna Sheen and DCWV papers and cardstock. Flowers were a gift from the supremely talented Marcea (mwah), spacers from Bunny Zoe and brads are Woodware.

Thanks for dropping by this afternoon, lovely to see you.
Hugs, Squirrel xx

Two gorgeous cards, both beautifully coloured! Well done on getting back into the swing of things, I've not ventured back into my craft room yet!
I know the feeling about going back to work tomorrow but I'm glad I don't do a 50 hour week!

Hi Squirrel I love both of these card. I love PB and Tilda images and these are both very sweet. I've been seeing lots of cards with Tilda in heels and didn't realise that I had them too cos I hadn't had time to have a look at the Winter Club set. What an idiot! Isn't it a problem when someone uses one you haven't seen and you "need" it?
Thanks for joining us at TG again and good luck.
