Happy World Cardmaking Day!!

It was a tough job to accomplish the task that I've been given to myself today - to celebrate my first World Cardmaking Day with at least three cards. My little bundle of joy was a bit cranky and occupied a great deal of my time, and we had unexpected visitors, so I had little time to devote to my addiction ;)
Considering the circumstances, I must admit that I did quite well though - I'm satisfied with all three cards that I managed to put together. Be prepared for a long line up of challenges that they're going to be entered for! :P

The first card is an answer to the Girly Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp. The team asks the participants to make a cheerful card for a 13yo girl that suffered from a severe injury. I hope many will take part in this challenge and send the card over to the girl!
The sketch for this one comes from The Friday Sketchers.

The sentiment (around the stamped flower) says "friends forever". It's quite a small lettering, and the photo turned out a bit blurry, hence it's hard to decipher. The stamped flowers were coloured with watercolour pens and partly blended (the colours that I wanted to stay sharp I did not blend)

Next card uses the sketch from Card Patterns. It's also my second entry for "We're Folding" challenge at Daring Cardmakers, and again I folded the ribbon. I wanted to make a tri-fold card for this occasion (and maybe I still will), but it takes extra time which I haven't got yet :)

My last card is packed with challenges :P
The sketch is taken from 2 Sketches 4 You, and the colours come from the current inspiration challenge at Our Creative Corner. The card has an autumny feel to it, which is my response to "Autumn Inspiration" at One Stop Craft. Finally, the included tree makes the card eligible for an entry in a tree-themed challenge over at Scrappy Frogs. And here's the card:

Hope you all found some time for cardmaking in this special day!
See you tomorrow, happy crafting!
