Dots & spots

Some cool challenges this week, for my thank you card for W for an unexpected crafty Christmas present. Basic Grey want spots and dots, AND they're having a DT call (YAYAY!), Spoonful of Sugar want a thank you card,  Bizzy Becs have a recipe: 3 flowers, 2 buttons and 1 ribbon, Cute Card Thursday have suggested we use up our old stash, and Friday Sketchers have this sketch:

And here's my card:

I used up some scraps of Basic Grey Lime Rickey and Lemonade for the spots and dots. Pretty cute, isn't it?

All new easel card

Today's card is all about newness - from Creative Card Crew and Simon Says, as well as Colour Create's challenge of pink, red and white with the option of hearts. With this sketch from Truly Scrumptious which I rotated and flipped, I think my easel card for a special new baby has it all covered:

Blessings card

M and I agreed just before Christmas to exchange cards, but we didn't have each other's addresses, and by the time I'd got hers, Christmas had come and gone. I received her beautiful card this morning! So here is my card for her; not really a Christmas card any longer, more a general blessings card. It was made for the Creatalicious Challenge of 1 ribbon, 5 flowers, 2 snowflakes, and some bling.
