3rd and Final post for Today

Well this must be a record - 3 posts in one day and all challenge cards.

I have two cards for different challenges but both are also for my Wedding portfolio to show my Niece.

First off this card is for the ABC Challenge which is O is for Orderly, this is the challenge-

We would like your card to be balanced. This means that if you use a flower on your card it needs to be balanced by another one somewhere else on the card.

Here is my card for this challenge

The second card is one I have been trying to make all day but I have only just finished it, it is for the challenge at 365 Cards. Today's challenge brings us to the edge - of the card, that is. I challenge you to decorate at least 3 sides of your card.

You remember yesterday I said I had been on a little shopping expedition to the Range? well whilst I was browsing some of the new Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen stamps fell in my basket with out me noticing so I have used one on the edges of this card and tied a length of ribbon to the top edge. I love these stamps, the set is called Retro Rose and I just know you will be seeing a lot of these in the future.

I have used the same sentiment but in different ways to try and show her what is possible, hope that makes sense.

I am also entering these for a new blog I have just found called My Time to Craft, their theme this week is Love and Marriage, just the job for these cards I would say!

To finish the day off here is a card I made for my Daughters, Boyfriends Nephew's 5th Birthday!! still with me??

I printed out a colouring picture of Ben 10 and then scanned it back and re-sized it, I know these things are copyrighted but I figured if it was a colouring picture and it was free to download it should be ok to use.

Well thats me for today, back tomorrow to start again
