A lot of candy posts a little crafting time

Haven't had that much time to craft lately, with all the time I spend comuting (3 hours a day), taking care of my home (well bf is doing most of it), taking care of our summer house(still bf does most...), getting the boat ready for the sea(bf too me just a little) and taking care of our pets(kitty and doggy). That really doesn't leave that much time for crafting. Will try to get some done this weekend, in bad need of some birthday cards. Hopefully these pages will be full with creations soon :)
Well during this time I gotten som reading done(no crafting on busses so what else is there), have been reading the Twilight serie and I just fell in love with it. When I was younger I did some live roleplaying, actually as a vampire so they gets me to remember the good old days. Well I'm of to work some more (having a lunch break)

Challanges x 2

My sisters son is celebrating his 4th birthday today and I really needed a card, my insperation was in a rot. So I jumped between all the challanges that I follow and found two that would work great for this card. The sketch and theme "Card for a child" is from Truly Scrumptious Challange #5. The color combination Orange, Green and Brown is from Colour Create Challange Week 13. So this is my first challange combination.

Here are my entry:

Truly Scrumptious Challange 4 - Flower Power

Over at Truly Scrumptious they have a great sketch with a theme. The theme is flower power.

You must be a little bored of the stampavie dragon with flower stamp by now, but he SOO fits this challange (and I do not have that many stamps). But I really love this card, you can't see it on the pic that much but all the papers got some texture.
For the flower bit I overloaded on them :), on both the background and the small green scallop circles I have heat embossed flowers in clear, the cute dragon has a flower and then the flowers in the corner :)
