Cards, cards and even more cards!!

Well just as the title says I have loads to show this morning so this will be a long post!
First of all I have to tell you about a Fred She Said challenge! Tracey has some fab new releases some of which I have used on my card.
Here's a list of the new releases
Dancing Daisy Corner
Flutterbies for your Flowers 1
Fred's Flowers Set v5- A Lovely Blossom - (this one has the tiny butterfly)
Miss Bitty Set 1

And to celebrate this fab new digi sets we have a challenge for ya! Tracey has a lovely FREEBIE image for you on her blog here and all you have to do is make a card with it, simple as that. And... the winner of the challenge which will run for a week will win all of the new releases AND a $20 gift certificate to spend in the Fred She Said store! How cool is that?
So hop on over there and grab that freebie, but first please do look at my cards in this post lol.
So here is my card using Miss Bitty (which by the way is only 1 of loads of different versions of her in the set, and one of the new Flutterbies.Isn't she just the sweetest? I have used some Basic Grey and K&Co glittered paper. Coloured Miss Bitty and the Flutterbies with copics and some stickles just because I can't resist sparkle on wings lol.

Right my next card is for my first guest DT spot at Sketch and Stash. They have another great sketch this fortnight and an optional extra to use your neglected scraps so I did just that.

I am really not happy with this card. I made it late at night, can you tell lol. The stitching is all over the place! But I had already sent it to Becky to use for the challenge then looked at it in the morning and seen how bad it really was!
I do like the flowers though lol. They are from Aries Crafts.

So because I really wasn't pleased with this card, I made another one lol.

I have used some scraps of Basic Grey and also some paper by Summer Driggs that I had left over from another card. The flowers and bubble stickers are from Aries Crafts.

My next card is for Squigglefly. Kim set the challenge to make a baby card, gender neutral and any shade of purple.
Here's my take. Don't know if it's maybe a bit girly but it's done now lol.
These papers are all downloads but I have no idea where from except the dark one which was in the digi set I won on the Kaboodle challenge.

And if you haven't fell asleep yet! My final card is for Cute Daisy May. It's a fab sketch challenge this week.
Here's my take on the sketch

I loved this CDM image as soon as I saw it so I just had to use it :)
papers are Basic Grey and all the flowers are from Aries Crafts and the sentiment is from Stampin Up!

Right that is me for the day I think lol. Do let me know what you think of this lot :)
