One of a Kind

The first card is for There She Goes sketch challenge #78.
The second card is for the Annabelle Sketch Challenge + bling.

The first one was also for the last Papercraftstar photo inspiration challenge, where I used the colours from the photo to inspire me and the Tuesday's Throwdown #22  "anything goes', but I was too late for both of them!

I have used SU DP's and a piece of Co'ordinations card which I lightly sanded. The sentiment comes from the SU set One of a Kind, but the image is a Crafty Individuals C1 - 193. I used Momento Rich Cocoa ink, used a Copic for the pink breast and sponged the edges of the SU oval punch I used for the sentiment. I then added a piece of greenish ribbon and mounted it all on SU kraft card, and it's done.

This card is using the papers from a Papermania set called Silent Night. The image and sentiment are from WMS set Nutcrackers.  I have added some ribbon and some green sprinkles for bling! The image is coloured with Copics after being stamped in Memento ink Rich Cocoa on cream card. 

It's a rainy day today but warm - not as rainy as the mainland I hear, but still a bit wet. We had 1.2 cm last night and it is drizzling as I speak. Had my first seen huntsman in the house Friday night - yuk! He/she was lively and BIG.  Poor John had to get out of bed and get on a stepladder and remove him/her from the bedroom! Time to call the spiderman to come back and make sure they desist from entering.
