Bit of a Mixture

Hi all, this weekend in between swollen legs, hands, being sickly and looking after mum I managed to get the following cards done for some challenges lol.
This first card I have made for:

For this card I used a Wags'n Whiskers Digi Stamp coloured with promarkers. The papers are mainly SU I have added ribbon, sentiment (freebie not sure where from) flowers and card candy
I also added a butterfly which is double layered the bottom layer I used my SU punch the top layer my new Tonic Butterfly punch.


My second card I am entering into the following challenges:

This is my first time making a real CAS card and I enjoyed it, I am seeing this style emerge more and more and I find it very pleasing to the eye, cards in this style always seem to look classy not sure mine does though.
I have used a white pearlescent A5 card base, pink satin ribbon and my new Unity stamp set called The Simple Things. I used black Momento ink and did a shadow effect as well, the sentiment is part of the set.

Finally my third card which as you can see is quite different and was inspired by Stef aka Glitterbabe's new Challenge the theme this week is to use a colour combo of Orange, Pink and Turquoise I am also entering this into the following challenges:

I have used a digi image from Di's Digi Downloads I think her images are so beautiful and cute I have coloured her with promarkers, the papers are Basic Grey I added different coloured pink ribbons, orange roses, turquoise butterflies and card candy.

Well everyone I really hope you have enjoyed looking at my 'Bit of a Mixture' card selection 
Hugs to all and see you later.

dear Lorraine,

I'm back again and wow your cards are again so marvelous, I love them.

Here is all right, with Leonard all is good, he is such a lovely and smiley boy, and so sweet. With myself it isn't so good because I can't still walking and I sit the whole day in my electric bad chair but I can cardmaking and embroidery and some cooking for all the family

big hugs Lia
