So Many Challenges, So Little Time!

I've had to limit myself or I'll end up with challenge-overload, and I don't want my mojo to run away and hide again.  This week (and my week starts with Mo's Digital Challenge on a Thursday!) I've managed Mo's, Raise The Bar, Little Red Wagon and now, CPS Card Sketches and Daring Cardmakers.  There's only Crazy 4 Challenges to go (and I'll post that one tomorrow) and then I start my next week, with Mo!

So, the details:

As always, CPS is a sketch challenge:

and Daring Cardmakers' theme this week is 'Winter birthday cards'.

Here's my offering:

Image: Heather Ellis, Pure Innocence 2
Papers: Cosmo Cricket, 'Jolly By Golly', mini book version.

I coloured this cutie with my copics, swiped a little pale blue chalk around her and glittered her very lightly around the edge of the mat.  A few square gems add sparkle and she's ready to deliver her 'Warm Winter Wishes'.

I used a rectangular image instead of a circular one, so it's not absolutely true to the challenge.  But I wanted this little one to be a full image, as she is being very clever balancing all those presents!

I've been working on a special project over the last couple of days and I'll post it in full when I've had a chance to photograph it.  I think you'll like it!  It has been a mini labour of love and I've had such fun, especially as I know the recipient will be soooo pleased. 

Right, I'm going to take some indigestion remedy now - I've terrible 'indi-flaming' (as my mother calls it) and I feel really nauseous.  I hope I've not picked up the latest 'yucky' going 'round, which is a nasty tummy bug.  Unfortunately, having just had a bad flare with my RA, my immune system is having trouble recovering.  Oh hum! 

Anyway, I'll be back tomorrow with my final challenge for this week and a sneaky peek at my special project.

Happy crafting.
