By The Cute and Girly and Cute Daisy May

I can't believe it's March already!! This months are just flying by. I just wish the cold weather would fly by just as quick!
As it's a new month, it's time for a new challenge over at By The Cute and Girly and our theme this month is "Spring". We have some fab sponsors again this month so why don't you hop over and check out what's up for grabs this month and you can see what the other girls have made too.

I have just made 2 cards this month as I have been really busy with other stuff regarding by the cute and girly which I will tell you about at the end of the post, but first here's my cards.

This is an unusual colour combo for me and I'm not sure if I like it but it's done now.
I followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday
I coloured Anya with a mix of Polychromos and Karisma pencils and OMS. The papers are Papermania and Bo Bunny. The ribbon is also Bo Bunny and the sentiment was done on the computer. Can you believe I didn't use any flowers!!

I got this cute Penny Black duck image from a blogging friend (thanks hun) and I just had to colour it straight's sooo cute. I coloured this one with Polychromos pencils and oms.
I followed the sketch over at Penny Black for this one. The papers are all freebies from a magazine except the yellow cardstock. I used my Fiskars border punch on the yellow paper and also punched a butterfly with an Anna Griffin punch.
The tiny yellow flowers are Primas and the pink ones are faux suede ones but I can't remember who makes them. The yellow and green pearls are some I got off Ebay.

Now I have another card to show and this one is my DT card for Cute Daisy May where there is a fab sketch by Pinky.

Isn't this image cute? I printed it out twice and cut just the dogs from the second one so I could layer them on top. I have used Polychromos and Karisma pencils and OMS to colour.
The papers are by Paper Cellar, ribbon is from my local haberdashery, the white baby's breath flower is from my stash and the other is a Prima, and the swirls were done with an All Night Media punch.

Now for the news on BTC&G. Some of you may already know that I have taken over the running of the challenge blog as Jane has decided that she no longer wants to run the blog. Also some of the other girls have stepped down from the design team so we will have some new members for next months challenge.
The challenge blog is still running as normal though and there will still be fab sponsors and lots of inspiration every month :)

Thanks for stopping by today.
