My Spidey Sense is tingling!

Yes, Its a second blog post from me today, but I just had to get these two cards made and posted in time for their challenges! I have had these two cards on my 'to do' list literally for weeks - they are monthly challenges, so have been on the list nearly a month!!!

Without further a do, here is the first! Challenge #6 over at the Movie Magic Monthly blog is all about Marvel and the brief being to make a project with a Marvel Action Hero on it. We are all big Marvel fans in this house - hard not to be with 3 boys - so I knew right away I would make a card for my youngest who wil be 2 in a few months. I have used an image from the back of my other young son's Spiderman colouring book and a Sizzix Halloween embossing folder for the web - I coloured the inside of the folder with a blue dye ink pad before running it through the cuttlebug for the effect shown. I finished the card with his name on some red card candi, a number 2 die cut and some birthday ribbon.

This card will be entered into the following challenges -
Movie Magic Monthly - Marvel Action Hero
My Craft Creations - Die Cut Shapes (number)
Here Come the Boys - Anything Goes for man/boy

My second card here is for the Cards Galore Challenge for July entitled 'Copy That'. I have been inspired by Isobel Hunter's card and used the same layout but have used a Craftwork Cards chandelier stamp and sentiment. I have added two black seam binding bows instead of a flower and white bow.

I will enter this card into the following challenges -
Cards Galore Challenge - Copy That
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes Birthday Celebration

Thanks for looking!
