MIXED BAG

Happy Sunday to you all, it is pouring with rain here at the moment but maybe it will clear up soon. I hope that you are all having a lovely relaxing weekend.
I have a bit of a mixed bag in this post today a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
My first card is a clean and simple design, I have used red textured card stock as a highlight, I have used pink pearlescent card as the main colour I have used embossing folders to give both a little interest and texture, the flower is from my Elusive stamp set this particular one I have not used for quite sometime, I used Momento ink to stamp then promarkers to colour, I cut them out and layered them up I used a flower gem for the centre then added a small stamped sentiment.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
My second card is for a birthday girl, I have used one of the newer images available from the Paper Shelter she is called, Rock Star, I have coloured her with promarkers, the papers are a mixture of Basic Grey and SU, I have used a MS Heart border punch, added some card candy and bow, finally I stamped a sentiment.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
My third and final card features a digi image and is called Carly, I love watching Carly on Create and Craft, she is always on on a Thursday with CREATA, she had some digis created of her and the DT, I just had to buy Carly, I have coloured this image with Copics and added lots of gold glitter.
I tried to follow the sketch at A DIE FOR A SKETCH, I have used my Cheery Lyn Die for the centre, I used pink pearlescent card, the base paper is Bearly Mine, I added some gold Lame ribbon, die cut frond, flowers and a sentiment, sorry if it looks a bit crooked it is my photo taking skills, they are not as good as they were, well that's my excuse, lol.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Well that is my marathon post over and done with, I am going to try and make some more cards today that I have already started.  I have had my mum staying with me since Thursday, this morning she missed the bottom step of the stairs and fell down, I will have to watch her as she is 93yrs I hope that she will be ok, Jess is watching over her as well, bless her.
I would like to thank you all so much for the wonderful comments that you have been leaving for me, you are truly treasured.
