More challenges...

Two challenges for today, luckily I managed to get outside and take the photographs before it started to rain. Today is the longest day of the year, Summer Solstice and it has rained since this morning and was only 10 degrees. Can you believe that I had to get my winter boots and fleece back out of storage!

The Daring cardmakers dare this week is to make a quick card. I loved these DooleyDoo birdies by Jo Kill and this spotty paper was just perfect to go with them that I found in a drawer already printed out. The darers want to know how long it took to make the card too. My card took less than 15 minutes to make.

I've also joined in with the CPS sketch challenge and managed to use up another piece of paper that I had printed but not used.

Awesome cards, Andrea! I love your quick card with the cute little bird - the colours really pops out. I don't think I've ever made a card in 15 minutes, I'm way too slow for that... :)
