Come here, there's more...

Do any of you remember Jimmy Cricket? lol
Jimmy is an Irish comedian & "Come here, there's more", was a catch phrase of his, and that is exactly what I want to say to you too.... because I have made 2 more cards this afternoon! (perhaps having a cold isn't such a bad thing after all eh?)
Ok perhaps reserve judgement until you see the cards! LOL!

Well actually I can only show you one today because the other is my DT card for Sketch Saturday this coming Saturday.
So here's the card that I can show you...

and the inside...

I've made this thank you card, to give to someone after they have given a gift.
The theme at Whiff of Joy Challenge this week is "Thank You"
WoJC are celebrating their 2 year anniversary too! congrats ladies! xx
I started by colouring the adorable Henry Mouse hugging heart from Whiff of Joy with ProMarkers, adding SU dazzling diamonds to the heart.
I used the beautiful sketch designed by my pal Lena from this weeks challenge at Sketchy Colors, hope it's ok to use artisitc licence and not put the image in a box in the centre circle.
The sketch suits a gatefold card perfectly and once the scalloped edges were punched (SU eyelet border punch) it left a strip of the inside of the card showing which I added a complimenting paper to the outside design so that it would show through, then I wrote the words "Thanks I Love it!" inside.
The paper on the outside of the card is from the same collection as the inside - Paper Cellar's Wedding paper stack, I love the grid-like harlequin pattern in these muted colours,
and GRID is the theme this week at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, I just found this challenge blog & it's my first time entering, hope they like my card.

Well the heavens have opened here, and we have thunder/lightning too so I think i'll go back to my desk and see if I can find any more challenges to make cards for ;)
I've really enjoyed getting my fingers inky today :)
