Cupcake Craft #48 and Papertake Weekly #19

A few cards to show today, although two are quite similar and very simple!
The first is for the Cupcake Craft Challenge 48, which is Blossoms & Butterflies. I have used a Pixie Chicks image, of which I have a few coloured and ready to make cards with, so expect to see a few over the next few posts!
Supplies used: Image - Pixie Chicks #1 from Charmed Cards and Crafts, coloured with ProMarkers (Blossom, Lilac, Lavender, Amethyst, Apple, Meadow Green, Yellow, Ivory, Blush, Rose Pink, Sky Blue, Cyan) and highlighted with Sakura Glaze pens and Glossy Accents, Fiskars border punch, Diamond Stickles, Papers - not sure, sorry!, Prima flowers, brads from stash.

The next cards were created using Sketch #19 from the Papertake Weekly Challenge. I'm attempting to make all of my cards for the next few months which is why these two are quite similar but the recipients know each other so I didn't want to make two identical cards!

Supplies used: Image - "Happily Ever After" from Pink Petticoat, coloured with Poppy Red ProMarker, glittered with Gold Stickles and Glossy Accented, Papers - Pink Petticoat, Flowers - Prima & Doodlebug, Fiskars border punch (which died to make this card!), Papermania Adhesive Stones, Ribbon from stash.

I managed to get to see Harry Potter on Wednesday without my waters breaking, which was a relief! The cinema was absolutely heaving though when we came out - the queue was out of the door! It was a good job we booked for an earlier showing. I thoroughly enjoyed it, one of the best yet, though I'm always disappointed by the fact that they can't fit everything in - shame we haven't had some extended versions like LOTR...

Anyway, I am now waiting patiently (not really) for baby to get a move on and arrive, in the meantime I will be filling my time with more crafting, in an effort to distract myself without having to stray too far from home!
