Challenges Galore!!

I always seem to struggle to keep up with "challenges"...I really enjoy doing them...but I never seem to "git r dun" in time...so today I was determined to complete a challenge....but...now brace yourself.....when I went for a nosy round I got excited.....steady....when I realised that the "challenges" were such that I could do some together....so this card is 5 challenges in one!! Woohoo for b!!

Actually, I was trying to include the Arty Girlz challenge to make it birthday related...but thought I'd enough on this!! So here's the low-down....

Basic Grey - distressing...I've distressed edges with scissors, ink, ripping, rolled the edge of my "sweet treat" tag and of course the base PP is also distressed (I've used 3 papers from the sugared collection)

Penny Black - decorate the inside of your card...weeeeell...I did this with my little Penny Black cupcake - not terribly exciting I guess...but never-the-less it's more decorated than I normally do!

Cute Card Thursday - Food...hmmm...I really needed to use a Penny Black image here so I used my stamp called "cheesecake express" and stamped the cupcake and sentiment inside the little tag.

I had a few cute images with "drinks" but didn't think that would "qualify" for this challenge!! LOL

Friday Sketchers - this fabulous sketch is by Kristine which I really enjoyed working with!

Stamp Something - Embellish It - well I have lots of pretty prima's (can't get enough of these!!), brads, raffia ribbon, 2 different stitches using my sewing machine and some stickles on my cupcake which you can't really see in the 'photo!


I wonder what the highest number of challenges some-one has managed to roll into one creation...? That's a challenge in itself!! Bev is always good for combining!!

Phew!! The most important thing I guess is that I had fun...and...I actually really like this little card!! So now I must return to playing nurse-maid for my poor hubby...he has "man flu"....yep! it's that serious!! bx
