Two cards for Cute Card Thursday & A Spoonful of Sugar

I hope you're all having a wonderful Easter, my long weekend has been taken up with trying to get some cards made, only the temptation of the computer is proving hard to resist lol. I've done two cards for today so the resistance seems to be working. The first card is for A Spoonful of Sugar where you have to make a card with a persons age on it. So, I had a play with the new Whiff of Joy Medieval images and came up with this. Poor Charlotte has been well mutilated bless her, I wanted to have her sat on the horse (isn't this horse just fab!!) so had to amputate her leg! I think it's worked out quite well, seeing has she was designed to stand and not ride a horse!!

I went for my fave K&Co papers, but couldn't find something that would work with the trefoil paper and the zig zag scalloping so stamped the stripes on to the linen effect K&Co paper with a Stampin Up stripes backgrounder stamp

Kept the inside pretty plain, more or less carried the layout on the front through to the inside

Recipe:
Stamps: Whiff of Joy Charlotte's Horse, Rogue Charlotte, Stampin Up Circle of Friends sentiment, Stampin Up stripes backgrounder stamp
Papers: K&Co
Tools: Martha Stewart Zig-Zag punch, 1" circle punch, Circle nestibilities, Quickutz Alphabet
Embellies: Buttons and twine from stash

My card for Cute Card Thursday was originally intended for a different challenge as the colours fit the challenge perfectly I'm entering it there. A quick and simple card really with my favourite no fail layout that works every time for me when I am in a hurry. The flowers are punched with Retro Flower punches - no Prima flowers used on either of today's card gasp!!

More punching on the inside - I just can't leave my MSBP's alone lol

Thanks for looking,

  73. Great cards!

    I just can't believe that the summer kit is almost here. I just haven't had a chance to buy the latest stamps from WOJ. Certainly you got me inspired and I just had ordered the summer kit. Which means I'll be impatient for it to arrive and get more insp. from you. TFS!

  83. I KNEW I had seen someone on that horse someplace and figured it had to be you so came back to look and yep, it was. I'm happy to see that I ordered Rogue Charlotte so I can 'mutilate' her now too. I'm thinking I can do it to one of the knights too! Thanks for the inspiration and helping me spend my money.
