Going Up North

Today I'm off up to the office for a couple of days, so before I leave here's a couple of cards I wanted to share with you.  I have had my Papertrey Ink supplies out again - they just make crafting so easy - I like easy!
This card was inspired by challenges at:
The Playdate Cafe - colour challenge - red, turquoise, leaf green, black, white
MelJen Designs - recipe, 1 ribbon, 2 flowers, 3 brads - I promise there's two flowers, they're just layered on top of each other!
Totally Papercrafts - happy birthday

Supplies used:
Stamps - PTI wishing you
Inks - PTI ripe avocado and pure poppy
Scalloped card blank - craftwork cards
Patterned paper - PTI Beautiful Blooms
Brads - Bazzill

For this next one I've gone a little bit Christmassy.  It was inspired by challenges at:
Just us Girls - colour challenge, red, green and black
Cute Card Thursday - tweet or flutter - I went flutter with my little bird
Stamptacular - grid challenge - spot the grid paper in the background
A Passion for Papertrey - hip to be square - I can see at least 3!

Supplies used:
Stamp - Penny Black in a pear tree
Ink - PTI ripe avocado
Patterned paper - PTI, beautiful blooms, 2008 bitty dots basics, 2008 bitty box basics
Lots of adhesive gems and some black stickles and of course some gingham ribbon

See you in a couple of days.
