Exam results, and a card

Well, well, another week flew by!...
First of all, I wanted to share my exam results, as I never expected to get 86% and a Distinction!.. :) woo hoo!... so that was brill, and I am now looking forward to starting again in October. :)

Anyway, the above card was made for my nephews birthday, and as he is a bit of a Goth like me (Im very proud of him! LOL) I thought I would stick with something quite dark.

Its brightened up quite a bit in the picture, but you get the idea.
This card is for the Sugar Nellie, PCP Challenge and this week it was embossing.  I embossed the black card with a spot design in my cuttlebug (not clear on pic) but I promise I did  :)

I used a Sugar Nellie stamp called Goth Girl, which I love, and the papers are by Creative Imaginations, and the epoxy sentiment is by March Johnson.  I coloured the silver edges using a marker, and followed Marlenes sketch for the Sugar Bowl challenge.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

The Sugar Bowl - Sketch by Marlene
Crafty Cardmakers - Birthday
Ooh La La Creations - Spots and dots (spotty embossed black card, and silver dots)
Papertake Weekly - something old - the papers are old, Something new - the stamp is new
Passion for ProMarkers - Music.  This is inspired by goth rock

Thanks so much for looking, and good luck to everyone in these challenges

Poppy Love

Ok, so I finally get my satellite internet speed back up to something decent (512kbps - hardly brilliant!, but it was throttled last week due to watching too much Big Brother online!) :D Tee Hee!
Even browsing blogs and challenges was like pulling teeth at 56kbps!..... but anyway, new month, new allowance (phew!) :)

So I made this card today in time to enter the Sugar Nellie - Papercraft Planet Challenge 16 This is one of my favourite weekly challenges, so the pressure was on to get something made.  this week, Fiona challenged us to make a card in blue.  I used the Poppy digi-stamp from FunkyKits/Sugar Nellie, and used K&Co Blue poppy and dotty backing papers, an MS punch, and die cut some flowers, leaves and the corner.  I followed sketch 17 on the Sugar Bowl challenge.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Sugar Nellie - PCP - Challenge 16 - Blue
Sir Stampalot - Bring on the bling. (Gems and stickles)
Sugar Bowl - Any sketch, any theme (I used sketch 17 and flipped it horizontally - theme blue)
Digital Tuesday - Digital stamp and Dazzle Me
Simon Says - Go Dotty (K&Co Dotty paper)
The Crafty Pad - Ribbons and Flowers

Thank you for looking, and good luck to everyone in these challenges. xxalisonxx
