WARNING!! This is a looooong post

I have been out of the loop for way too long so I am going to do a challenge card catch up so sorry for the length of post...This first one is forPolly Craft Challenge Blog - I have used their great sketch
The super cute image is one of the new critters and cogs digi set. I have coloured him with a mix of pro markers and sakura stardust pens then added some glossy accents to the gold lights on the space ship and his eyes. The sentiment I have made using some air drying clay that you can get from Crafts and me. I am having so much fun with this clay it is really light so doesn't weigh your card down is so easy to use and I love this effect I have got by stamping into it then inking it with a couple of different coloured brilliance inks so it shines and looks a little bit metallic. The papers are from Bearly Mine.

I just could not resist this little sweetie from All That Scraps she was calling to me to be used and I have used up scraps and freebie to make this mini card. The card is from a magazine as is the sentiment strip along the bottom and the glitter card was in my scrap box. I have coloured her with pro markers and mounted her on foam pads.
I am entering her in the following challenges:
Anyone for Anya - Sweet as Sugar (As you can now use CC Design stamps too)
One Stop - Wings

I couldn't resist the Sweet pea stamps any longer and as normal I have coloured her with a mix of pro markers and sakura stardust pens so she is all sparkly. This beauty is ching-chou kuik's Fluttering-Butterflies from Crafts and me. Again I have used scraps for the papers here and not that you can tell from this pic but the layer behind her is holographic silver.
This is for the following challenges:
ABC - Sparkle
Simon says - Things with wings
Flutter by Wednesday - I have used their brilliant sketch.

How cute is this little digi from The Greetings Farm! I have coloured her with pro markers and added glossy accents to the rain drops. The paper is from Crafters Companion Girls disc. The stamp is from ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection, Sheet #6, plate #28 that you an get your hands on at Crafts and me in case you can not read it from the pic it say "Anyone who says sunshine brings you happiness has never danced in the rain" I just love that sentiment :D
I am nearly there now I promise and this card is for the following challenges:
Crazy 4 challenges - I have used their great sketch
Digital Tuesday -April showers or April flowers

This next card is for the following challenges:
Kraftin' Kimmie - For the boys
Sophisticat - So Distressing

The paper is again from Bearly Mine the image and sentiment are from Kraftin' Kimmie (see some of her range at Crafts and me). I have coloured him with promarkers then chalked around him for a touch of distressing.

Well I am hooked on these stamps at the moment from Kraftin' Kimmie so yep these are also from that set and again image coloured with promarkers. The paper is from papermania's capsule collection. The pearls are from my stash.
This card is for the following challenges:
Cupcake craft - Red and white

Thank you to anyone who managed to get all the way through this I promise I will give you a bit of a break now :D
