I had a go at cutting an arc shape on the front of a square card, using a compass to get the semi circular shape, then I added some flowers and used backing papers on the insides of the cards. One was made for a friends birthday, one for the village fete selection, and the red one was for my (step) daughter in laws birthday, she hit the big 40 on the 14th July..I added a little fairy charm to that one. As always, I added some stickles to the flower petals..couldn't be without my stickles and/or glamour dust ! (Thanks go to Phill, over at Honeypot Crafts who introduced me to glamour dust !) Hope you enjoy looking at these cards !
This was my entry for last weeks Sketch Challenge over on the Trimcraft forum. The butterfly papers were freebies with a magazine, and I added some pearlescent card, a flower and gems and the sentiment, (from the Daisy and Dandelion range), plus a bit of stickles. Thanks for looking :o)

I haven't been on here very much in the past week, I was busy making cards for our village fete, and then we had to take our little Billy (one of our cats) back to the vets last week as the abcess in his mouth flared up again..he is still taking his anti biotics ( with a struggle !), and touch wood, he seems ok. Keep your fingers crossed everyone ! Anyway, the fete wasn't very busy I'm afraid...our village has what they call a "late fete" which starts at 6pm on a Friday evening....hmmm, we keep saying it should be arranged for a Saturday or Sunday, but they are set in their ways...anyway, I managed to sell 12 cards and one neighbour asked if I could make a wedding card for her husbands cousin, so here it is ! I'm pleased to say our neighbour liked it, let's hope the recipients are pleased with it as well, the wording wasn't my choice, but as they say, the customer is always right !

I had another go at the Sketch Challenge this week and this time decided to use one of my Little Claire stamps which hadn't been out of its packet up until then ! I coloured in with Whisper pens, and added some stickles and some little jewelled flowers. We have a village fete fast approaching, so this one will go in the box for that !
