Friday Sketchers etc

I think these might actually be the last of my card orders, I just need to put the sentiments on - I wanted to get them on here though because I followed the sketch at Friday Sketchers and I'm not sure what time they have to be entered by. Now that I've seen the pictures, I'm not all that happy with my colouring - I've not blended very well! But in my defense, the light has been particularly bad today. It's snowed a little and we're meant to have more overnight - Morgan will be pleased if we do! Dex hated the snow last year, I wonder if he'll like it more now. Anyway, onto the cards....

1st card - The image is a Stampavie stamp that I was very tempted by, but my lovely blogging friend Squirrel kindly offered to stamp a few for me. I've coloured it with promarkers. The papers are Sandylion, with some shimmery gold cardstock from my stash. The pinwheel flower thingies are cut with a sizzix die, with card candy centres. The snowflake is the cuttlebug icicle die with a flat back pearl centre.

2nd card - same image as before. I'm not sure what the papers are, I bought them in a local craft shop - I bought the shimmery pink cardstock at the same time. The little snowflakes were freebies in with an order from Dies To Die For, with some glamour dust and gems added. Big snowflake is the cuttlebug icicle die with a flat back pearl centre.

3rd card - same image again. DCWV papers and cardstock. The snowflake/ flower thingies are large cuttlebug icicle snowflakes that I've cut down and coated in glamour dust, with some felt flowers and brad centres. Large snowflake is the cuttlebug icicle die again, with a big gem centre.
Now I just need to get on with a couple of family birthday cards, and then get the last of our Christmas cards done - most of mine had to wait until my orders were all done, and as I'm running out of time, I've been panicking slightly!
I'm also entering the following challenges:
