Good evening, I'm very happy this evening as I've actually managed to complete some challenge cards! These are 2 cards that I've made today, I have actually made a third one as well, but the glitter is still drying on it so I may post it later, or I may not get to show you it until tomorrow, we'll see how the time goes.

The first card is for the Stamp with Sarah Kay challenge number 8 which is a sketch. I find these quite difficult to follow, that may just be me or maybe that's why it's called a challenge?
I think this is such a sweet little image even though I had to cut her down to fit in the frame. I don't quite know what happened to the puppy, he looks a bit like a lump of toffee and I'll have to do better next time, I'm not an 'animal person' in real life either. I don't know where any of the ingredients of this card originally came from, apart from the corners and pink flower which are K & Co, all the rest was from my stash.

The second card is another sketch challenge, this time from A Spoonful of Sugar The little cutie this time is from Hanglar and Stanglar (I'm sure that's NOT how it's spelt) and I thought she was just divine with her little basket of knitting, again I'm afraid all the bits are from my stash, so I have no idea what make anything is. That's the problem when you've had stuff for ages without using it, but I find it so difficult to use lots of my bits and pieces because they're so pretty I don't want to get rid of them.
