Carl's New Pad

Hi everyone!
How's your weekend going? Good I hope!
As you may know, I am currently a Guest Scribbler over at
Here's my latest card for them!

I made a New Home card for a guy who's just moved in to his first flat!
The cool image I have used is #321 Carl's Pad
(gotta love a cute frog in a pond lol )
The sentiment is my own!
My card base is the usual 6"x6".
I used a mix of Flexmarkers & Promarkers to colour up the image.
The image & sentiment were die cut using spellbinders dies,
then inked with some liquid chalk ink.
The patterened paper is from a book of papers I picked up at Lidl.
The fish tail was created using a square punch on an angle!
I was going to add a couple of buttons but the little bit of trim appeared
 from nowhere & was the right size, so I stuck it on instead.
Thi card is flat which means it can easily be posted.

Miss Ewe!

Good morning all!
I hope you had a good weekend! Did you have snow on Saturday? 
We did here in Edinburgh, it was just the craziest weather!
Sunday wasn't so bad & we had a great day out at Edinburgh Zoo.
We walked our socks off, but it was fantastic!
Anyhoo, down to business!
It's time for the new challenge over at Eureka Stamps, where the theme is
Here's my little card!

I used the sweet little image  digi 2209 (35) Standing Sheep & the 
sentiment digi 9903 Miss Ewe.
The card base is my usual 6"x 6" in lilac cs with matching paper for matting.
I coloured the image using flexmarkers & promarkers then cut out using 
a spellbinders die. The sentiment was cut with a spellbinders die too!
The layout is the sketch over at Cheerful Sketches
The sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday is similar if you rotate it

The papers are 12"x12" Kitschy Kitchen by Melissa Frances.
The buttons & ribbon are from my stash!
I hope you like my card & I'd love it if you can play
