Homework done!

Yeah, I finished both of my magazine commissions, including writing the instructions etc.  I still have a few bits left to do for Crafter's Companion but a little me time was needed and a couple of cards were made.
This first one was inspired by challenges at:
Tuesday Taggers - feature a house - I went for 2 little birdhouses
Creative Inspirations - Pastel green, pink and cream
Stamp something - something cute - well I think those bird houses are super cute
Saturday challenge - clean and simple
Totally Gorjuss - sketch challenge - I turned it 90 degrees

Bits and pieces used to make this card all came from Papertrey Ink:
Stamps - Daily designs & Daily designs sentiments
Ink - Dark chocolate
Card - Spring moss and vintage cream
Paper - 2008 Polka Dot basics
Tools - 1 3/4" circle punch, 2" scallop punch
For this next card it was time to get a little ink, but only a little bit.  I was inspired by challenges at:
Twisted Sketches - sketch #23 - clear - one of the buttons is clear
Crazy 4 challenges - book related
Sir Stampalot - all distressed
Stampin for the weekend - shabby or vintage - I went shabby

Most of the bits and pieces for this card came from Papertrey Ink:
Stamps - All Booked Up
Ink - dark chocolate and aqua mist
Card - craft and vintage cream
Paper - Library ledger
Buttons - aqua mist and twine
Ribbon and flowers from local shop

The lovely Leann also left me a Trendy blog award, in return I have to say why I started my blog.
It's some where that I can record my slightly bonkers life and share the bits and bobs that I make.  I love challenges as it gets me crafting and that can never be a bad thing.

I hope you've had a great weekend and found time to do what you love.  A weekend with Anna, especially with some crafting thrown in is music to my soul, so I'll start the week a very happy bunny.
Please pop back this week as we have some excited news from Crafter's Companion!

Hi Ginger

Two really great cards, one so soft and elegant and the other a great distressed feel.

Is'nt it nice when you get comissions out of the way. The tuts are always the worse bit for me and human nature being what it is I always leave them to the last minute.

Thank you for sharing with us at Stampalot Challenge this month and good luck.
