365 Cards - 1 post, 2 cards, 2 challenges!

Well I have to admit I am a little behind in posting this week and its because I went to see my new Grandson last night so I am sure I will be forgiven.

Here we go, 2 cards and 2 challenges but both for 365 Cards.

Day 34 - 'That's Eggs-ellent'

For this challenge, Stephanie and DT member Sophie were asked to create a card in honor of Easter, specifically with either an EGG or an OVAL as the dominating shape. It is not necessary to make an Easter card for this one.

I was really inspired by the cards I made for Day 33 - White space and wanted to use that sort of thing again, so here is my entry for this one

Now to today's challenge

Day 35 - Ad Inspired

I have to admit this is possibly my favourite challenge of the week, I love the ads that the DT have used to inspire us for these challenges.

Here is today's challenge

I knew as soon as I saw this I knew I had the perfect bit of patterned paper for this but it really was only the bit going down the side of my card, the rest of the card was out my scrap box.

The stamps I bought for £1-00 in a local craft shop bargain bin and this is the first time I have used them

If you haven't been over to look at this blog you really ought to, its a great way of building up a whole range of cards suitable for all occasions.

I feel better now I have caught up again, hope you like them!
