More Challenge Entries: StampTV & Ribbon Carousel

Hi there and welcome back to my blog. It's still school holidays in NZ until Monday, when most schools start again for the year. I 've been busy this week with birthday cards and challenge entries and will share some of them with you today. One birthday card I'll have to hold back as I don't want the receiver to spot it on my blog before she receives it! LOL I will share it with you guys later on!

The first card is my entry for the StampTV Free For All Friday challenge. This week you have to CASE one of the DT ladies, the very lovely Jennie Harper. Jennie has quite an extensive and very inspiring gallery over on StampTV and I suggest you hop over there and have a look.
The card I CASEd is Jennie's "As for me":
As for Me...

I decided to make a Valentine's Day card using non-traditional colours. This is my card:
This card is more masculine with the ivory and chocolate brown combo (very non-traditional colours!). I really like how the stitching stands out as well.

My last card this week is for a very special little (almost) 4-year old. Our little friend LOVES horses and the colour pink and I decided to make a birthday card with a difference - maybe something her parents can frame  and hang in her bedroom?
I didn't want to put the words "Happy Birthday" on the card as it's more a 'scene' than a traditional birthday card, but quite like the two charms - her initial and a horse. The horse stamp is from Hastings Rubber Stamps. I stamped it twice on white cardstock, coloured it with Copics and fussy cut it before mounting with foam tape.
