Black & White Bear

My second card today was made for the challenge at Just Cute Bears & Friends where I have followed the sketch. The papers are from the Papermania Capsule Collection, the stamped image is 'Squeak' from Docrafts, the sentiment is from Dovecraft, the 'pearls' were made with a Viva Pearl Pen (ice white) and anything else is from stash. The photo could have been better, but as usual I was in a rush!

Christmas Penguins

I finally found myself with a couple of hours to spare this weekend and so have made two quick cards. The first is a card made up of freebies. The papers and paper embellishments were all free with 'Simply Cards & Papercraft' and the penguins were a freebie from Tales from Pollycraft and have been coloured with promarkers. Christmas sentiments, ribbon and gems are from stash. I have followed the sketch at the Pollycraft Monday Challenge and have also entered at Crafty Cardmakers where the theme is to 'Use a Freebie'.

Wow, my last post was after 10 days of no cardmaking, this time it's been nearly a month! What with internet problems, poorly children, packing up because we thought the move was on etc etc, I thought I'd never get back to my craft desk. We still haven't moved in, but I couldn't go on any longer without entering a challenge card. So to my husband's dismay I have unpacked some boxes and managed to put together today's card. I have been popping to my favourite blogs when I can and have had to let some great challenges go without entering, but this week there are lots to choose from and I have tried to make this card fit as many as possible!
CYDA - recipe 1 circle, 2 papers, 3 ribbons

Although you can't see in the photo, the spider's web in the middle is highlighted with a Sakura Tiara silver pen
