For this challenge, you had to use a tag somewhere on the front of your card. I have used a tag stamp from SU, a Sugar Nellie image, coloured with Prismacolor pencils and Sansador, and papers from Papermania.

Final card for tonight, a sketch challenge from Secret Crafter. I have used Pink Paislee 'Sweet Cakes' collection paper and a Penny Black stamp - Chic, which has been coloured using Prismacolor pencils and Sansador. The scalloped square was cut using Cricut's 'Storybook' cartridge and the photo corners were cut using a Sizzix die.
The compulsory element, this week, is punches. I have used the SU tab punch, the SU flower punch and the Martha Stewart Doilly punch. The PPs are from the Fancy Pants 'Daily Grind' collection and the scalloped circle and title have been cut with the Cricut 'Storybook' cartridge.

This week was quite a challenge. You had to 'cut' your photographs - in a different way to the usual cropping. My LO is totally alien to my usual style, but I enjoyed doing it. The journalling reads: I work Monday to Wednesday. On a Wednesday evening I come home and 'blitz' the house and do the shopping. This leaves me with Thursday and Friday to 'play' - heaven!

This week's challenge on UKS was to use ribbons on your LO. I don't often use ribbons on LOs, as I'm never quite sure what to do with them. I eventually decided on 3 strips of AMM 'Daisy yellow' ribbon, along with Paper Salon 'Enamoured' pps and a Making Memories 'Delaney' journalling note.

I haven't done any of the card challenges for last week, as I was busy preparing for, and then taking part in, the Cyber Crop over on UK Scrappers. There were some lovely classes and my friend Karen and I spent a lovely weekend doing as many of them as we could. I copied 'Wild Thing' almost exactly, as I loved it so much, but most of the others I have adapted to suit my photos/supplies/papers etc (still loved them though)
