Challenge cards!

Ok - this is my first card....did you hear that???? FIRST card!!!  That means more than ONE!  LOL - my mojo is paying me a brief visit so I thought I would get two cards done!  This first one is for the lovely sketch at Allsorts Challenge Blog.  I just saw the sketch and knew I could do it!  Its not that often I think that!  The papers are Stampin Up and I made the flowers - I saw the tip of using a heart shaped punch on someone's blog - whoevers blog it was...thank you, it worked a treat!  Used liquid pearls in the middle.  And coloured the image with copics.


And this one, I made from little inch square pieces of card and it has helped me with my quilting desires (see post below!)....lots of fun and I surprised myself with my patience!  The flower was from Stampin Up and I inked it with the same colour as I inked the edge of the pic and light blue card.  Still not completely happy with the layout - might need a bit of balancing up...just not sure!  Obviously, this young lady is drinking a mug of cocoa (not drinking chocolate but proper cocoa!) so I am entering it into the hot chocolate challenge at Simon Says Challenge and also at quixoticpaperie
Thanks for taking the time to look!  Rx

Hi Ruth,
I'm so glad I have found your blog because I have been wanting to email you for ages and ask if you ever received the card I sent to you a few months back?
It was delayed because of my mum's op but i did eventually post it.
Your cards are beautiful and so soft and feminine.

Hi Ruth,
These are great cards. Your flowers are fab and I love the "quilting" on the second card, it looks brilliant.
