Cards cards and more cards

Here are some cards I have been making and waiting for mum to take photos of.
First one is from a few weeks ago when my friend Renee and I made 'sort of" matching cards with mums ballerina stamp.
Second ones are a xmas card I made using one of mums Stampin up stamps and the cuttlebug machine for a Christmas in July competition.
And I also made an old looking card with a ballerina shoe stamp from Kaszazz that I coloured in with Mum's watercolour crayons and lots and lots of distress ink!  Mum punched some flowers out for me and I crushed them with a tool that makes the flowers look older and broken and they curl up.

Im entering my ballet shoe card in Bizzy Becs competition
only people that have bought from her can enter.. mum buys heaps.. so I think this counts (and yes mum it typing this for me!!)

and then tonight I made this card.. Mum let me use her Copic pens (and she was stressing out the whole time)
I really liked using them, its easier to colour with them!
This is mum's brand new Krafin Kimmie Red Riding Hood stamp!

Thanks for reading!

I coloured this image (which I won from Karens Doodles) ages ago and mum cut it out on her new Gazelle cutter.
We used a glue pen and added flock (fluff) to the lounge so it looks like the cat really did scratch it up.
Here are the challenges I am entering with this card

Charizma - Flowers

Double Dutch - Sketch

Your next stamp - use a border punch

Karen's Doodles - Embossing (mine is on the pink flower)

Paperplay- flowers and sparkle

Cards that I have made lately

 I made this card for my mum or nana for mothers day.
I made this card at my friends house. It was the same stamp that her mum used for her wedding invitations!

I made this card for Halloween. My friend was coming over for a play so she made a Easter card.

Ai challenge card

I made this card for a birthday card for my teacher, I don't know when her birthday is though! I'll ask her tomorrow.
I coloured in an image my mum printed for her card but it was too big for her to use. She gives me her images that she printed by mistake to play with all the time.
Can you see that I have coloured this girl to look like she is wearing a school uniform?

I am entering this card in a challenge
called Ai factory Challenges, just for fun
. I had to follow a sketch.
Mum has some sketches stuck to her craft room wall,
I picked one I liked and tried to follow it.
I had a problem though as my image of the girl
was a bit bigger than what I thought
and I had to move the sketch around a bit.
the sketch was from CPS Sketches.

My first Card!

Mum helped me make this card for a friend. I used plain white paper and stuck pink and black spotty paper to it. Then I stamped the words onto a piece of white card and sponged around the edges. We used the Cuttlebug to cut the circle and scallops. We stuck the scallops onto the card then used magic mount foam to stick on the stamped paper. We tied a bow in a ribbon and stuck it underneath the circle. We punched out two flowers and a butterfly and stuck them on. I stuck on rhinestones to them.
