For you!

My card for the Allsorts challenge to use a tag or ticket...

 Stampin'Up Kraft card, paper & sentiment; SEI Chipboard.

I recycled a couple of clothing tags (one Kraft, one pink with a metallic flower already printed on) & added some ribbon & a chipboard embellishment & a black pearl. Finally I stamped the "For You" sentiment.  The stamp was a freebie gift from my Stampin'Up enabler Carol.  If you're in need of inspiration or fancy trying some SU goodies then I'd highly recommend you pop on over to her blog Crescent Stampin.

Clean & Simple

My first entry into the CAS-tastic challenge... 

CAS means "clean & simple" & this weeks challenge was to make a one layered card.  My card is one of those tiny 4"x4" ones & I've used American Crafts Rub-ons.  All that was needed then was some little bits of doodling on the birdcage.

The challenge over at Polkadoodles this week has been to design a card with "dimension & texture" using their fabulous freebie download. Here's what I came up with....

The striped paper & circles are from the freebie kit & I just added in some Design House Images, a Crate Paper die-cut sentiment, some ribbon, some silver textured card & some bling!  All popped up on various levels of 3d foam...

And how lovely to be able to take the pics outside in the glorious sunshine! :)
