The colours haven't come out very well in this one, for some reason - the leaves and vase look grey, rather than green. I have used Hero Arts 'Post Sketch' stamp, which has been coloured with Stampin' Up inks. The papers, ribbon, buttons and sentiment stamp are also Stampin' Up.

The challenge at Magnolia vs Stampavie, this week, was to use at least two different stamps on your card. I have used 2 Magnolia stamps, which were coloured using Promarkers. I'm not sure what the PPs are, as they have been lurking in my stash for ages. The embossed panel was done using a cuttlebug folder and I have used 'dewdrops' for the centre of the flowers and the edge of the sentiment.
The challenge from Penny Black Saturday, this week, was to put a frame on your card. I used a Sizzix frame around a Penny Black image from the 'Critter Party' set, which was coloured using Prismacolors and Sansador. I created the background using a Stampin' Up stamp from the 'Yummy' set and used a Hero Arts stamp (Old French Writing) to take away the 'whiteness' of the flower.

Final card for this weekend. I have used a Sugar Nellie stamp called 'Flowers', which has been coloured using Promarkers. The papers are 'Night Owl' from the Pink Paislee ' Vintage Moon Collection' and 29th Street Market 'Spirit "Bright" Sunburst'. I have used a Martha Stewart punch for the scalloped edges. The sentiment stamp is from 'Penny Black'.
The challenge, this week, was to create a scene. I have used Magnolia stamps, coloured with Promarkers. The background was done using chalks (thanks Andrea, for inspiring me to dig them out of cold storage LOL), and the PPs were the remnants from the Pink Paislee 'Spring Fling' papers. The sentiment stamp is from 'Stamps Away'.

I love Thursdays and Fridays - no work, just the chance to 'play' all day! For this challenge I have used a Sugar Nellie stamp, coloured with Promarkers. The pink mount has been cut using my Cricut, the papers are a combination of Heidi Grace 'A Little Bird's Tale' and Elsie 'Clare Prom Dress'. The flower stickers are also from the Heidi Grace 'A Little Bird's Tale' collection.
If you hadn't already guessed, this week's theme was 'dotty'. I have used Craftwork Cards 'Enchanted' papers, Bazzill 'Dotted Swiss' Cardstock and a spotty brad to finish off. The stamp is Penny Black ' For You' and it has been coloured using Prismacolors.
This one was tough - we had to follow a sketch and it was really difficult trying to find a photo that you could cut into equal strips, without chopping someone in half! I decided to change the strip featuring Tim and Daisy into colour, to help it stand out. Used Cricut Plantin cartridge for the lettering.

This week's challenge is to use 'paper piecing' i.e. stamp an image on plain paper and then stamp it again on patterned paper, instead of colouring in some of the sections. The wall and 'Happy Birthday' are from the Magnolia 'Graffiti' collection, the girl is 'Farmer Tilda' and the other sentiment is from Hero Arts. The punches are from Stampin' Up.
This week's challenge was to use a brown and pink colour scheme. I have used the final few pieces of Crate Paper's 'Blue Hill Collection'; some brown Bazzill, which has been embossed using a cuttlebug folder; a prima bloom; Stampendous sentiment and Penny Black's 'Buzz in the Air' stamp, which was coloured using Prismacolors.
This week's challenge was to make a gift for someone, so I dug out my trusty bind it all and made a little notebook. The stamp was coloured with promarkers, the scalloped oval was cut using the Big Shot and the PPs are from Crate Paper's ' Blue Hill Collection'.

For this week's challenge, over on UKS, we had to use chipboard. That was the easy part, as I've got loads of it gathering dust LOL. The hard part was tying to produce a LO that wasn't Cathy Zielske style. I've produced so many 'clean and simple' LOs for her class, that it was a real struggle to use lots of PP and embellishments. I have used Crate Paper 'Blue Hill Collection' PPs, K&Co 'Roam' rub ons and the Stampin' Up tab punch. Can't remember who makes the chipboard alphabet - it's been lurking in my stash for ages.

This week's challenge was to use something that you had got for Christmas on your card. I have used my Cricut (Christmas pressie) to cut the card, cut the mat and cut the 'Happy Birthday'. The mat has been stamped with stamps from the SU 'Season of Joy' set and the image is Penny Black's 'Daisy Surprise, which has been coloured using Prismacolors.

This week's challenge was to make a Thank You card, following a sketch. I think I'm finally coming to the end of my Scenic Route 'Sonama' papers. The 'Reflective' stamp is coloured using Promarkers and the embellishments are cut with the Cricut, except for the scallop circle, which was punched using a 'Stampin' Up' punch.
The final week's assignments were to use two of our favourite sketches from the class, to create two new LOs. I have again combined this assignment with the scrap like you mean it' challenge over on UKS. This week's theme was to use hearts or stars. I have used Cloud 9 Design 'Sweetheart' collection PPs and embellishments.

This week's Penny Black challenge was to use embossing on your card. I have used Penny Black's 'guess' and sentiment stamp. The image was coloured using Prismacolor pencils and Sansador and I have managed to use some more of my Scenic Route 'Sonama' paper. The embossing was done using the cuttlebug folders and the other bits and pieces were cut using the Cricut.
I love this sketch. I have used Penny Black 'Greetings' stamp, coloured with Prismacolors and Sansador. The 'hope you have a great day' stamp is also Penny Black and the PPs are Scenic Route 'Sonama'. I have cut the tags using my Cricut Expression, which was my Christmas present from my lovely hubby.
I have used 'Reflective' stamp from the Sugar Nellie range, which has been coloured using Promarkers. The PPs are from the Scenic Route 'Sonoma' range, which were from Sarah's Cards monthly scrapbooking kit. One of my New Year's resolutions is to start using some of my monthly kits, rather than keeping them in a box and 'stroking' them once in a while!

Cathy's class has now finished, but I'm playing 'catch up' with the last few assignments. I've decided to combine this assignment with the 'scrap like you mean it' challenge over on UKS, which requires you to produce a LO using your favourite colours.
