A Few Cards

Hello!

We have had a hectic weekend with scooter parties, football presentations and shopping for my eldest's prom outfit - who knew boys could be so fussy!  I did manage to squeeze in a few cards along the way and here they are:

 
This card was made with the sweet panda set from Mama Elephant with a touch of colouring with Spectrum Noir pencils. I am linking this card up with CASology's Challenge based on the cue card - Glow.  The glow from the lamp, glitter tape and sequins reflect the theme.
 
 Next I wanted to play along with the new Tag You're It Challenge - particularly as the inspiration tag was made by Virginia Lu.  Here is my take:
 
 
 
I cut a stitched tag using my Waltzingmouse Stamps die and the hello die cut is from Papertrey Inks which I stacked up with a couple of layers.  The circle stamps are from Uniko Studio.  I hope that you can see that I was inspired by the colour combo and the die cut word from Virginia's designs!
 
Thanks as always for stopping by - I hope you have had a great weekend :)
 
I'm off to check out the Altenew blog hop - so excited about their next release!
 
Bye for now, Sarah x
