My other creations this week...

...that don't fit into any challenges but I thought I'd post them anyway :)

 This one came from a design in the back of Papercraft inspirations magazine August edition p82 (I think). I adapted it slightly by changing the bird to a butterfly and also adding a sentiment. I really like the simple design and it was really quick and easy to make.

 For this one I used a new hedgerow friends stamp that I got free from a magazine a couple of months ago. I tried colouring in parts of the image (I'm not very good at this yet - think I need to invest in some proper promarkers!) and I used chalk on the grass which I think worked really well. I chose a couple of Henbury Lane papers for the background and finished off with a topper from my Tatty Teddy and Tulip DoCraft goodybag.

 This one has been made using goodies from the Tatty Teddy and Tulip DoCrafts goodybag, a bit of paper from my stash and ribbon from my stash.
 This card is based on a design from the Papercraft Inspirations blog so I had a go at using the same layout myself. Unfortunately the flower stamp smudged a little but I quite like the overall effect.

 These three cards have been made using a Forever Friends sticker set from a goodybag. I stuck them on top of brown card and cut around the shape leaving a small border. I then used design papers for the backing and added the sentiments from the same sticker set. A great tip that I picked up from a recent workshop I went to was to stick the separate sentiments onto a ruler first, with half sticking above the edge, then when you stick them down and peel the ruler away they should all be level. Genius! It's certainly saved my frustration! On the third card I used glitter glue to highlight a sentiment already embossed into the card (need to practise more with glitter glue!)
This is another design taken from an old magazine and I had some owls which fitted the design perfectly.
