Summer time,and a hybrid card

Morning guys well the weather has changed for the better the sun is out and lovely and warm too which is great,just hope it lasts.
Well over at Creative Craft Challenge,the theme this week is summer time and we have some fab sponsers this week and they are,

craft ribbons, rainbow studios,and some odd girl

So here is my card using one of the iamges,from some odd girl,

It is my first step card not brilliant I know as can never get the measurments right,but had a go,image colored with my pencils,papers,are SU and hunky dory,then added some flowers,card candy,and ribbon.
So we would love for you to join us,this week,and we want to thank you for taking the time,especially with the summer holidays for entering into our challenges,we are overwhelmed by the response,so thank you.  If you would like to enter the challenge or become a follower as we are still short of our previous target ,thanks to someone deleting our previous blog,you can add us to your followers list HERE.
Thank you.
Now as you know I am on the DT over at creatalicious,and Cheryl has this friend who is seriously ill,it really is a sad story,and my heart goes out to her,I made her this card,with permission to use the photo which is on the blog along with the full story.
So here it is,my first Hybrid card,

Does look better in real life so to speak just wanted to keep it plain,and simple not too fussy.
If you would like to read more the link to Cheryls blog is HERE

Next is my card for less is more,now its fruity this week and I have no stamps with fruit on so I used my SK image of her picking apples,now girls if this is not appropriate,that is fine,I just did not want to miss the challenge so here it is.
Colored with my,polychrome pencils.
Challenge less is more fruity

Fabulous cards friend. Stair step cards are hard, I don't like making them because measuring never comes out right no matter how hard you try. I'm sorry about the ill friend, you did a beautiful job on the Hybrid card. Love the image for the LIM card. Beautifully colored.

Sue said...
