Charisma Cardz Challenge #45 and Cute Card Thursday Challenge #86

Well, hello everyone - hope you are having a fantastic weekend! Sorry I haven't been around for a while - I just seem to have lost my mojo at the moment - but I have had to get my act together to make some birthday cards.

This is the first one I have made. I am going to enter it in this week's Charisma Cardz Challenge - Merry and Bright, but I'll understand if my entry can't be counted towards the prize cos it's not a Christmas card. My take on the challenge is to use bright colours, and have the girl merrily cartwheeling across the card! I do love the way these penny sliders work, and they are so easy to make!

I'm also going to enter it in this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge, which is Glitter Me Silly - I have glittered the papers for the number and the slider, and the flower is also glittered. The girl has been painted with pearlescent paints.


Pink Card, Ribbon, Butterfly Charm, Glitered Flower all from my stash
Patterned Paper - Kay & Co Sparkly Sweet, glittered with Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle Gold
Stamp - Upside Down from Diane Duda for Sugar Nellie Stamps

Damn!! I just realised I forgot to change the month on my watermark on my photo - but I have only just made the card, I promise!!

Well, I hope you like my card. I'm hoping that this is the start of finding my mojo again because I'm hoping to get some Christmas cards made this week! I have a week off work (yaayy!!), with the intention of making some cards and buying (or maybe making) some presents.

Hope to see you again soon!

Love, Andrea xx
