One card.... 6 challenges!!

I can hardly believe it myself,but I have actually managed to make one card that fits into the categories of 6 different challenges! I might need to give my brain a rest for a day or two now!
Before I list the challenge blogs I have to say that I drew the image myself so anyone who knows me and my family will know right away where I got the inspiration for the drawing from....yes,my son,Andrew who is,as I type, beside me on the exercise doing his nightly 25 miles!! I only wish I had the energy to join him!! He has been keeping an eye on his muscles for years now!! This is what he was like a few years ago.
I used MME papers..Blossom and Bloom
Okay, the challenges are
Sketch Saturday
Cute Card Thursday..for a young boy
Creative Card Crew..favourite things( got to be my new border punch!)
Allsorts ..buttons
Colour Create . Green,red and white
The Pink Elephant.. something plaid,any no.of brads and no ribbon.
So there you have it!

Sketch Saturday

Okay, so I really should be sleeping and not on here but I've been so busy lately and was out tonight until late and won't get a chance to post this in the morning so here I am while everyone else in the house is snoring zzz
I got new nesties yesterday as an early Christmas present and just couldn't resist using know how it is? So they have made an appearance on this card for the Sketch Saturday challenge.
I went for "pretty" this week using the same roses I drew a couple of weeks ago but coloured in pink and cream. These roses remind me of my late father who grew beautiful "Peace" roses in our garden.
The Cuttlebug folder is "Victoria" and looks so pretty with the new border punch which I got for £3 at a craft fair last week!
The little flowers were sent to me by my dear friend Tara. The little cut out leaf stamp was another little bargain from the fair.
I resized my rose image and added the smaller version to the flat part of the easel card.
Hope you like it! I'm off to bed now as the light seems to be annoying someone and I'm being called!!

Four Challenge Card

It seems like ages since I made and posted a card on my blog.The last two cards were DT cards and were actually made quite a while ago.I have been suffering with a wisdom tooth and haven't really been able to think straight never mind make cards!
To cut a long story short,my new dentist thought he could remove a bottom wisdom tooth but after 7 injections and lots of digging around the tooth broke and the root was left inside.I was sent home like that and had to wait in agony for 9 days to have sedation before having the gum slit and the rest removed. So the past few weeks have been spent in a haze of pain and painkillers.Now that it's been removed and the gum stitched up I feel so much better,at last!!
Sorry to everyone whom I "tried " to smile at yesterday at the King's Hall.Now you know why it looked half hearted! It was great to meet up with Martine and Mina again even though I couldn't talk much!!

Well onto the card...It's a 4 challenge card this time,for Basic Grey (glitz and bling), Sketch Saturday and Allsorts (for a child) and Cute Card Thursday ( Glitter me silly)

The gorgeous image was sent to me by my lovely friend, Tara and the Basic Grey tartan paper was sent to me by another lovely friend Martine.
The snowflakes were made by one of the new punches I bought at the King's Hall Craft Fair yesterday and the snow at the top was made using a pair of decorative scissors and glitter.
I hope I'll be making more cards soon and also looking at all your creations too!
