Challenge 22 - Cute

Today is the start of Challenge 22 over on Quirky Crafts Challenge blog. The challenge is sponsored by the Cutting Cafe and you can win some digital downloads of your choice.

Also if you want to apply for the Quirky Crafts design team you have until 28th Feb.

Before this challenge I hadn't really used digital downloads much though I have quite a few saved and now I think I will use them more. The beauty of them is that they are inexpensive, don't take up storage space in the home, and you can change them in size or colour.

I have used a combination of a sentiment from the Cutting Cafe Nice sheet, and stamps from the Crafty Pad (Shelley and Twitter I think) which I think go together perfectly.
 Can anyone tell me by the way why it is that I always get sick on the weekends so I lose out on my personal time? No, I don't suppose you can. I was in bed most of yesterday, and feel like going there today I am so bunged up with cold, but at least my throat is less painful, but I will have a shower, think I need it.
So without further ado (and too much more unwanted information) here are two versions of the same card layout.
Die cut shapes are all done with Nestabilities, paper is from Pocket Full Of Posies by DCWV, glitter glue on Prima blooms is Ice Stickles and is still wet in this photo, ink is Memento, images coloured with Promarkers.

Now I am looking for challenges I can enter and I didn't make my cards with any other challenges in mind but I found the following:
I hope these qualify for the green + 1 challenge on My time to Craft.
and O is for one piece of paper on ABC challenges

Lori asked how I got my sparkly signature, well someone on UK Scrappers forum was offering a long time ago, and probably still does it, and made my sig for free to use on the forum, I didn't have the blog then but I tried copying it in a a photo and it worked. There are lots of free sites where you can do your own but none are as good as my own signature below which has no links to adverts and doesn't disappear to force you back to the site.
