Three challenges in one post......phewwww!!!! I was busy!!!!

I hibernated yesterday because it was snowy and cold so I got a few challenges done!!! This first card is for Challenge #73 at Spoonful of Sugar - using a sketch. Here is my take on the sketch -which was really fun!!!

I used an image of Tilda on a sled, which was mailed to me last winter that I finally got around to colouring & using! The cardstock is Pink Pirouette & is 6x6. The green designer paper is from a TAC stack that I got last spring (can't remember the name of it!!) The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp set called Sending Sunshine. I added stickles to the snowflakes and randomly to the white stars on the green paper. I coloured Tilda with my Koh-i-noor pencils and Gamsol.

This next card is for Digital Tuesday Challenge, which was to make a Halloween card! I couldn't resist using this cute monster from Dustin Pike. I wanted him sitting on something spooky, like a tombstone, so I found the graveyard scene online in a colouring pages site - I just googled "tombstone colouring page" & got a TON!!! Amazing what is out there for free!!

I used the last of my Trick or Treat paper by Provo Craft for this card!!! Sniff sniff!! I coloured the sky with my chalks and the rest with Copics.I added crystal effects to the cross, the lollipop and his teeth!

This last card is for Mojo Monday - week 108!! I have always liked the Mojo Monday sketches so I thought I would try this one out!

I used the stamp sets from Verve Stamps called Practically Perfect (bunnies) and Beautiful You (sentiment) and the Happy Anniversary stamp is from Simon Says Stamp. I used blue bayou and the DP is from an Adhesive mat stack that my friend Tracy got me ages ago - it is almost all gone so I will have to keep my eyes open for more next time I'm in the USA! (they don't sell that kinda thing in Canada!!)

Thanks for looking! I will be entering these 3 cards into those challenges so wish me luck!!!!! Have a great week!!! I can't believe it is Wed. already!!!! Wheeeeeeeeeee!!!
