365 Cards Days 86, 87 & 88

Wow, this week has been a wee bit busy around my house. The good part is that the weather outside has been mostly fantastic and I was even able to enjoy some of it. In this post, I have 3 cards to upload for this week's challenges over at 365 Cards. I have fallen way behind this week and I still have 3 more cards to tell you about after these ones, but those will have to wait till later. On to Monday's challenge at 365.
Day 86 - Grape Fun
The challenge: use purple as the primary colour and incorporate atleast 5 circles on the card. This is what I came up with.

Hot Off The Press purple paper
Crafts ribbon & DMC floss
Maya Roads chipboard tree
Creative Memories pen
CTMH buttons & inks
Unknown cardstock, green paper & dragonfly

Day 87 - The "Eyes" Have It
This challenge was to use the word "eye" somewhere on your card. After a ton of thinking, I decided to look on the computer under clip art images for a colouring book style picture of a cyclops. When I came across this image of Cyclops from the X-men, I knew I had found my theme for this challenge.

CTMH inks & watercolour pencils
Crafts Birthday Cake charm
Stikopotamus sticker letters
"Cyclops" X-Men picture from Computer
Unknown cardstock & ribbon

Day 88 - Quite A Pair
Today's challenge was to "design an anniversary or engagement card; no wedding cards." For this challenge, I decided to emboss plain navy blue cardstock instead of using a patterned paper. I also used a blending pen to blend in the watercolour pencils so that it would have the "look" of being painted with actual watercolour paints. I don't think you can read the charm I attached to the bow, but it says "Cherish".

Unknown cardstock & Versa Mark ink pad
Sheer Creations ribbon
Prima flowers & Queen & Company brads
CTMH inks, watercolour pencils, blending pen, "Say It In Style" stamp set, embossing powder & "Cherish" word charm
Stampin' Up "Baroque" stamping wheel & "Summer By The Sea" stamp set

Thanks for stopping by to have a look, and I hope to be back today with the other 3 card challenges for this week. I still have 2 I have to make yet. Here's hoping I make!
