Challenge Me!!!

I have been creating a couple of cards this afternoon, its too cold to go outside and I have the heating on high...sod the expense, and hot chocolate in hand, makes a change from a glass of wine!!!

So the first card I have created is using my gorgeous girly Penny Black stamp, I bought her last year and I still love her this year, I have embossed the "fluffy bits" with liquid applique. This fits in nicely with the Funky Christmas challenge on the Penny Black challenge blog I stumbled across this week.
And the next card I have made combines three challenges in one, sometimes that just happens!!!
The sketch is taken from the sketch Saturday blog, The latest dare over on Daring Cardmakers is Cafe Chic...featuring coffee on your card and I have found a lovely Basic Grey challenge site and this weeks challenge is to use embossing on your card, along with a Basic Grey product, so I have used some scrummy paper and embossed the liquid applique.
Really enjoyed making these cards too, and working to the challenges!!!
Off now to find more challenge sites!!!
