Another too late for the challenge

This card is based around the sketch and stash challenge sketch but although I had it made intime it didn't get entered.
Base card is Craftwork Cards as is card I have stamped the image on, papers are all Basic Gey Gipsy,think you need a bit of brightness sometimes. Image is Lili of the Valley coloured with Promarkers and brads are Making Memories.
Thank you for looking

A bit last minute

So about 3.30 on Tuesday he comes up to me and says, I keep forgetting to ask so I'm in trouble with the other half but can you make a card for Jades birthday. Ah, you'll need that for tomorrow then says I,and I couldn't refuse because I had made a card for the other 16 year old in the family, so I put aside the tiredness and got my head around a fairly non girly card at around 9pm and this is the result.
I've used an 8x8 elegant card from Craftwork Cards along with some of their paper. I have stamped onto the base card with some stamps from the same Kanban set that the tree is from in Peacock Brilliance ink. Tied a bit of ribbon round which I had hanging around and added a Little Claire sentiment.
Thank you for looking

December already

I am really behind with my Christmas this year. I made 5 cards of this design on Sunday which brought me up to a total of 19 made so I had better get my finger out for the other 25 or so people who I want to send a handmade card to. The rest will have a bought one this year I am afraid.
This Penny Black Image belongs to one of my friends at craft group, I'm pretty sure it is Ginettes but apologies if it isn't and I have offended anyone. I coloured it in with Promarkers then followed the PBSC sketch from last week which I loved but never had time to play with.
Papers are by Dovecraft. card from my collection has been embossed with a cuttlebug folder and the snowflakes are from a sizzlit and an X cut punch cut from some glitter paper which I found in my glitter and mirri box.
The sentiment is by Hero Arts and the base card is by Craftwork Cards. The red card was bought at the november show at the NEC around 8 years ago from the Scrapbook House.!
Thank you for looking and for your comments, I'll try not to leave it so long next time.
Edited to add: Apologies and grovels Carole, but on the plus side it's not too far away when I need to borrow it again ha ha!
