Numbers, a Sketch and a B

Hi everyone, firstly thanks for all your well wishes and I'm pleased to say Dad is being discharged from hospital tomorrow. Lately I've been blogging 2 or 3 cards at a time and I've decided to keep on with this so that I'm not posting as often..... hopefully it will also make it better for you (time-wise) as I do appreciate your continued visits.

So here goes with the first of three cards and this is my 'B' for boy, birthday and blue card which is an Elisabeth Bell image coloured with Promarkers and die-cut with a TH die.

This is for the following challenges

Allsorts challenge 'I spy something beginning with B'

Crafty Purple Frog challenge 'time to celebrate the little people'

Cute Card Thursday challenge 'birthdays'

Now for the 'numbers' card using a decoupage image from the Joanna Sheen 'House Mouse Decoupage' CD with some die-cut numbers and letters and a paper that I found on the internet.

This is for the following challenges

Words 2 Craft By challenge 'N-U-M-B-E-R-M-O-U-S-E'

That's Crafty challenge 'outnumbered'

And finally my 'sketch' card which uses another of the decoupage images from the  Joanna Sheen 'House Mouse Decoupage' CD and magazine freebie papers with a LOTV stamped sentiment. I've got quite a few of these decoupage sheets that I made up a while ago so I'm trying to use them up!

This is the sketch I followed over at CD Sunday challenge

I'm off to have a search through the crafty cupboard as I've been seeing quite a few LOTV images around Blogland lately and I know I did buy some artpads but not sure where they've hidden themselves! Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks for your visit today.
