CCT + all the S's (+ a teaser)

I managed to get a real good evening's crafting in last night, and ended up making three cards which is pretty good going for me. I made two cards that were almost identical, on the theory that as Christmas approaches it doesn't take much longer to make two the same than to just make one....

My first S is this week's Spoon Full of Sugar #27 which is a sketch - this was great to work with, and my first card follows it pretty exactly - the only difference on my second card is the one flower instead of two.

My second S is for this week's ABC Challenge , which is S is for Snow. I just love the little mouse floating to earth on a snowflake, and of course my background paper and flower centre brads are also snowflakes ... overall the whole thing's a bit snowflake mad!!

My third S is for Lili of the Valley Challenge #10 which is Sprinke and Sparkle - well, I decorated the image snowflake and the flowers with Stickles glitter glue; the background paper is very sparkly (much moreso than the photo picks up); and the matted card is holographic tiny circles (tip ladies - it is a recycled Asda tissue box LOL!)

Last but not least my card's colour theme is lilac - which I specicfically chose for this week's Cute Card Thursday #38.

Talking of lilac, the third card I made was my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT card which I can't publish until tomorrow, but here's a wee teaser (ooh the intrigue!). But just so you don't play Sherlock and get ahead of yourselves, the PB theme is NOT lilac LOL .. you'll have to pop over there tomorrow to find out what it is ;-)

Thanks for looking and have a good weekend.
