Quick post before bedtime - still not getting round to crafting much, but managed a card for Cute Card Thursday and Friday Sketchers in one, plus an ATC for Tilda and Friends.

I've made my card using another Dinky Dolly stamp, coloured with watercolour pencils, some DCWV patterned paper (I love those floral, glittery ones!), some orangey-mustardy paper, quite a few little dark purple Primas, to which I've added little orange gems. With these, the card qualifies for the "Gems and Jewels" challenge over at Cute Card Thursday, plus I've losely followed the sketch on new challenge blog Friday Sketchers (go check it out, it's got a wonderfully international DT who create a lovely variety of cards!).

Not so sure about this ATC, it's rather plain. I'm still struggling with the size of the Magnolia stamps, pretty much all of the ones I've got are about as high as an ATC, and there's not much room to play with width-wise either. I'm hoping that as I'm getting more confident with my stamping, I'll become more creative, too, trying out different techniques and stuff. So anyhow, this one here has one of my new Tildas, plus some Studio G stamped butterflies - I hope that makes it qualify for Tilda and Friends' challenge entitled "Bugs".

"Looking forward" to a "fun" day tomorrow - having to go to the dentist to have a filling replaced that came away over the weekend... Not my favourite! Intending to treat myself afterwards to some shopping in Edinburgh! Thanks for stopping by!
