C.R.A.F.T. and Sketch Challenge Cards

Had a little time to myself last night, once the boys were safely tucked up in bed (one of them was my bed, however!!!!). I've got lots to do later this week, so took the opportunity to make a couple of challenge cards.

Sketch Challenge 17 - Trimcraft

Following Tracey's sketch, I decided to make a Hallowe'en card. Have been dying to use some of my new stash. Love these cute little die-cuts and you get so many on a 12x12 sheet!
Die-cuts and DP: Boo! to You! by My Mind's Eye.
Sentiment: Frightful Collection by Little Yellow Bicycle.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 18

Just one rule of no backing paper! I thought I'd break out another recent purchase and try them out. Love Kraft cardstock.


Stamps: 59004 Sentiments LG by American Crafts.
Ribbon: Local Haberdashery section of Dept. Store.
Diamond Stickles to give a little glisten.

That's probably my whack for this week, roll on the weekend and International Card Making Day on 3rd Oct. (Any excuse to sit on my botty and make a mess....) :)
