Sugar Bowl challenge Wk 4

Its Saturday again and the sun is shining. What a gorgeous day, i think we are being lurred into a false sense of security. What mad weather we have here in the uk. Snow one week, sun and warm temperatures the next. I bet come Tuesday morning when i have to do the dreaded school run, it will be ice and frost again!


I have finally got round to making a couple of cards for challenges.
SUGAR BOWL CHALLENGE
This is my entry into this weeks Sugar Bowl Challenge Week 4. I have to say what a gorgeous sketch. Its the first week i've been able to make a card for this great challenge blog. The papers are from a HOTP pad and of course a gorgeous sugar nellie image.



PAPERCRAFT PLANET SKETCH WK 4
Then secondly i made this card for the Papercraft Challenge group Christmas Stamping All year Long. I have used this cute snowman image, one of my favourites last christmas. Papers sorry not sure where they're from.

Well ladies have a good weekend, will be back tomorrow with this weeks Crafty pad challenge. Hugs Linda x

Both those cards are really lovely, I like the ribbon on the snowman card. I know what you mean about the weather, I bet the plants will get confused with the false Spring.
