3 in 1 Challenge & My First Award

Two challenges this week have lent themselves perfectly to being combined. Friday Sketchers has a fab sketch presented by Beatrix. Meanwhile Stamp with Fun wants to see cards with the dimensions 8" x 4". Not content with this I have also used the gorgeous colour combination offered at Colour Create this week of red, cream & chocolate, though the photo does not show them in all their true yumminess! So I am entering my card in all three.
FYI, the little cutie in the image is by Alota, & the DP is Melissa Frances.

And now to some exciting news, I have my first award!

It came from a lovely lady named Sarah. Some of you may know her better as Lil-Paper-Pixie. Thank you so much! Click here to see the beautiful cards she creates on her fantastic blog. One of the reasons I created my own blog was in the hope of meeting lovely, like-minded people like Sarah who share my passion for card making. We spoke on the phone the other night & it was a real pleasure. I also know of two more hugely talented ladies who are equally deserving of this award, so I am passing it on to them. They are Dena & Jenny. You should check out their work too. All three have provided me with great support & inspiration since I started my blog in February & for that I am immensely grateful.

By the way, for anyone interested, Wolverine was very good, but would have been better if Hugh Jackman didn't have a beard! There you go, a critic's verdict!! Hope you are having agood week.

Andie, whoo hoo, what a cute card for some lucky little boy. How did I miss this card? I usually see your new stuff on the side of my blog, but I don't know what happened. Anyhow, congrats on your award and thanks for giving it to me. Not sure how to do it though. Maybe you could tell me. That would be my first also! Thanks!
