Challenge: Princess

Momo's current Tuesday Challenge is based on the theme: princess. I immediately thought of both a castle and pink, and of course some sparkle!

Between my nieces and my friend's 5-year-old princess sure has been the theme this year - I've made four princess cards within the past few months for their birthdays. This one will be put away until my 3-year-old niece's birthday in April :)

Challenge: Inkspirations Sketch #53

The inspiration over at Inkspiration this week is overflowing! As soon as I saw it, I fell in love with the sketch and all the designers' cards; I just couldn't wait to start creating my own!

 As I have a little princess birthday to go to this weekend, I thought it would be cute to give the birthday girl a card with a castle engraved with her initials. Pink all around for this little princess, and I have to say I really enjoy making super girly cards!

Challenge: Romance

I created a sweet card for 365 CardsImagine This challenge, with the theme of Romance which encompasses love and so much more: courting, chivalry, thoughtfulness, etc. The colours and images of this card remind me of spring which is when romance blooms :)

Challenge: Snow

Momo has decided for the New Year to do something different and have her girls choose some of the challenges. This week Joanna picked it and the challenge is to make something with "Snow" or a "Snow theme". I had a lot of fun making this cute little owl in MTC and cutting it with my Cricut. I love his little snowflakes and scarf!
