Good Morning Ladies,
I would like to thank our Cheryl for suggesting such a fun challenge this week.
I struggled a little bit for ideas, I just happened to come across some cute Unicorn cards on Pinterest and decided to have a go at making one, I love how it turned out .
It looks like you ladies had no problem, as you all made some fantastic cards....
Karen's first card is little Oscar's 3rd Birthday card, how can he be coming up to his 3rd Birthday? Where have those years gone, I can vividly remember you anxiously awaiting his arrival!
"Here’s a cc I made for Oscar
Not sure about this one as I don’t usually use patterned backgrounds
I cut Oscar etc on ScanNCut by welding letters together
The images are from a very old MCS CD-ROM I recoloured the image to get a blue “3” and fussy cut it and decoupaged it onto topper Also has a little bit of glossy accents on flame of candle "
"The paper is an old C&C download
The other items are from SW stuffed animals and Little Treasures I trimmed off “Welcome” and cut the elephant on the reverse so that it faced outwards"
Thanks Karen for 2 amazing cards, Oscars card is brilliant and i love that Edger die you have used on the second card too. XXX
Michele has dug back in her Archives for her Challenge card this week, its a fantastic card though.
Cheryl came up with our Challenge theme this week and she has really used it to her advantage, making 5 absolutely amazing cards for Children.
Two of the cards feature really cute bears, Cheryl has used them so cleverly, so that you can see both the back and front of the bears.
The first card in Cheryl's line up is a great football card, that any little boy would love.
The next two cards feature cute 'me to you' type bears, Cheryl has used matching background papers to compliment the cute bears.
I think you must have ticked off a good few of your 'children's' birthday cards on your list this week my lovely XXX
Margaret made two cute kids cards for this weeks challenge, the first card that Margaret has made uses papers from the £1 12×12 paper pad that 'Every cards a pound' its a great pad that has something for everyone!
Margaret's second card features the cute hedgehog from the Stampin Up 'Hedge Hugs ' stamp set.
Thank you so much for two fabulous challenge cards Margaret XXX

Maria has also made 3 cards for Cheryl's Children's card challenge.
Maria's first card is perfect for any little girl, with those cute little ballerinas, set upon a beautiful background and framed with that delicate die cut.
We loved the Hungry Caterpillar books when our children were small and its just as popular today, a clever use of circle dies Maria and googly eyes make any card fun.
Maria's 3rd card has a blended ink background and an adorable decoupaged Teddy and ball. Maria your blending is brilliant and I really like how you have coloured your sentiment to match.
Thank you so much for making time to make 3 fantastic cards. XXX
Lynda has made a fantastic challenge card despite feeling really poorly all week, trying to be creative when you are unwell is so hard, so I really appreciate you making this card Lynda.
Lynda has created a textured background by stamping with a splatter back ground stamp, she has then stamped and coloured one of Tim Holtz 'Crazy Birds' in some vibrant colours that kids would love, there is a computer game that kids love called 'angry birds', the birds look very similar to these ones, so this card would be a hit for any 5 year old.
Thanks again my lovely XXX
Another amazing display of cards, you ladies are the best!
I hope you all have a lovely Mother's Day,
Love & hugs to all of you,
