Time for a few more challenge cards

I have been working away today trying to catch up on as many challenges as possible :D
This first card is for the following challenges:
Pink Elephant - I have used their great sketch.
Anyone for Anya - They wanted to see something different well I have done a couple as I only ever stamp in black normally and I have never not coloured the image but I quite like it.
Anya Ink - I have used their gorgeous colour combo of blue, grey and cream.
Cupcake craft - Want you to create something for a friend.

I have used this adorable Twinkle Tots girl from The Greetings Farm and the sentiment is also from another TGF set. I have stamped them in whispers blue ink. The stunning papers are from a free digi set by the amazing Summertime Designs called Winter wonderland.

This next card is a lot brighter and I have used this super cute freebie image from Karen's Doodles you can pick him up by signing up to follow her PCP page and trust me if you are not signed up to it already you don't know what you are missing there are even more great freebies like this to find as well as the fact getting all the news. I have coloured him with promakers and sakura star dust pens for all the confetti so that it sparkles :D I have decoupaged the mouse and some of the balloons to give it extra depth. Then added glossy accents to all the balloons. The papers are from the brilliant Designers extreme vol II.This is for the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - I have used their sketch
Crafty cardmakers - I have used a triatic colour scheme of red, blue and yellow ( you will have to check their blog to see how to work out the colour scheme.

Sorry this is a marathon post but we are half way now so well done if you have made it this far.

My third card is I know very early but it is my first Christmas card of the year. I have used this lovely elf that I fell in love with as soon as I saw him he is by Amy Young and you can get your hands on him at All That Scraps. I have again coloured him with a mix of promarkers and sakura pens to make the star sparkle. The papers are from another free set by Summertime Designs called thanks for giving and the frame is also from the same set. This is for the following challenges:
Diedrich Dare - I have used their sketch
My Time to craft - In the frame well my little elf is hanging out of his frame.
ABC - O is for one paper I have just used this one backing paper then added the frame on top of it.
Cute Card Thursday - Ribbon, I have used some gold ribbon to go diagonally across the card.
C.R.A.F.T. - Ribbon and sparkle, I have added the sakura stardust to the star so it sparkles and the gold ribbon as above.
ABC Christmas challenge - E is for Elf

It's Ok this is the last one I promise at least until tomorrow. I have used this adorable image from Karen's Doodles and again coloured them with pro markers. The papers are from Designers extreme vol II. The flowers and peel offs are from my stash.
This last card is for the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - I have used their sketch
Digital Tuesday - A card for Mum (this digi screams mothers day to me)
Secret crafter - they also wanted to see a mothers day card.

Wow I think this is my longest post ever thanks for reading through it.
