4 Cards & Several Challenges

Warning Long Long Post Warning.
I am just about fed up with Blogger I have trying all day to get on here and now my Blog Roll has disappeared, what on earth is going on with it I feel jinxed lol.
Right I have 4 cards that have been made over this last week and have not been able to upload and as some of the challenges finish tomorrow I am going to put them all on this one post.
First card uses a new stamp which I won over at Quixotic in their New Year candy draw and fits into the following challenges:-
Sketch Saturday - Sketch
The Crafty Pad - Animals
Pollycraft Monday - Fire & Ice (Red & White)
Creative Card Crew - Punch It
Crafty Creations - Valentines or Love
Simon Says - Punch It
Creative Belli - Hearts
C.R.A.F.T - Red
Crafty Catz - Love

I rotated this sketch

6" Sqaure Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Designer Papers - DCWV
Cardstock - Paper Mill Shop
Image Stamp - Whimsy 'Dog With Sign'
Sentiments - See D's
Medium - Promarkers
Dies & Punches - 'Classic & Scalloped Oval' Nesties & Woodware 'Heart'

Second Card uses a stamp that I have had for ages but have never used, this card fits into the following challenges:-
Create 4 Fun - Sketch
The Crafty Pad - Animals
Lexi's Creations - Boys Card In Blue & Green
Stampavie & More - Boys Birthday
Quixotic - Ink Up An Old Stamp

I rotated this sketch

6" Square Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Designer Papers - DCWV
Cardstock - Paper Mill Shop
Image Stamp - Sugar Nellie 'Nuts'
Sentiments - Daisy & Dandelion 'Go Fishing'
Medium - Promarkers
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons

This third card uses yet another stamp I have had for awhile and not used before, shameful isn't it? Plus I have made a BLUE card this is just unheard of, I have never before made a blue card except of course a baby blue one. This card just fits into the two challenges which are:-
Colour Create - Kraft, Blue & White (My papers are off white not cream as they look in the photo)


6" Square Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Designer Papers - Unknown
Image Stamp - Sugar Nellie 'Untamed'
Sentiment - Crafty Sentiments
Medium - Promarkers
Die - 'Classic & Scalloped Oval' Nesties
Flowers - Prima
Brad - Papermania
Pearls - Poundland

Now for my forth and final card today I have used an image and papers I recently won in a candy draw. This card was made for the new Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenge where I followed their 'Sketch'

I rotated this

6" Square Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Designer Papers - Dovercraft 'Ho ho ho'
Cardstock - Paper Mill Shop
Image Stamp - Magnolia 'Tilda With Present'
Sentiment - Crafty Sentiments
Medium - Promakrers
Dies - 'Classic & Scalloped Oval' Nesties

Wow that was alot to go through, thanks to those who made it to the end lol.

Hi Kim,
Well you have been busy. This is a wonderful gallery of cards. All so different but all first class. You have a fantstic array of colours, papers and images and this is a feast of eye candy. I love each and every one of them.
If it makes you feel better Blogger is playing up with me too. I seem to have lost my followers. It really is annoying.

Gorgeous cards,
I now use google chrome and do not have problems with blogger like I did before on explorer, and also firefox was a lot better then explorer.
They are both free, so hope that helps and the other thing I can think of is to clear your cache, Have a great weekend, Hugs Angie

Lorraine Robertson said...

Hi honey,

Fab cards you've been making over the last week... love 'em.

As for Mr Blogger... well I've finally got a chance to do some blog hopping today & I must admit.. I'm having difficulty getting access to a lot of the blogs... not sure what the dickens is going on but I'm sure it will all sort itself out in time like it always does. Shame it happens in the first place though.
