Busy crafting!

Well I have had a busy few days at work writing a grant application and busy evenings spent crafting! I have to confess that I have been finding both hard, not least because I got a splinter under the nail of one of my fingers which makes typing and crafting rather painful.  I did manage to complete my crafting order though which was good. I was asked to make a birthday card for a little girl who turns 11 tomorrow, so this is what I came up with (she likes pink and cute animals apparently). For this card I followed the sketch from this week's Pollycraft challenge. The card also fits with the Ooh La La 'circles', CCC 'birthdays including a number', and Delightful challenges 'stitching' challenges.
Sadly I was also asked to make a sympathy card for a colleague at work who lost her sister under tragic circumstances.  As a result I kept it simple and elegant and am entering this card into Fluorishes Timeless tuesday 'favourite flowers' and PTW 'anything goes' challenges.
Finally I made a wedding card for a couple who are getting married tomorrow morning.  This card fits with the CTT 'no designer papers' and Sew Many cards 'foil' challenges.  That is all from me for now. Have a great weekend everyone.
