Bugaboo catch the bug week of mini challenges

Over at Bugaboo it is their first birthday and to celebrate as well as their weekly challenge which is birthdays see my earlier post here, they are having a mini challenge each day for monday to friday and you have till 22nd ( I think) to enter them. I have decided to stop me getting too confused( need all the help I can get) I am going to put them all, well those I manage to do on one post, this one and just add them as I manage the cards etc. Hopefully it won't become too long winded and I'll try and cut out some of the waffle I would usually type, so shout shut up Julye and get on with it PLEAASE!

Here is Monday's blue and white challenge.

This gate fold card I made with a fab old friday freebie from the clever and talented chappets at Bugaboo and as a non practicing nurse myself it really appealed to my sense of humour, believe me there are still quite a few of these nurses around and I suspect at least one in every department too. Its fun trying to spot them when you have to visit a hospital for any reason and can help with the boredom of waiting rooms too.

I used promarkers to colour in using various shades of blue, I even gave her a blue hair rinse, but hope you don't mind I stuck with more usual skin tones. The papers are all form my scraps stash so various makes, got to use them up somehow. I decided not to ad too many embellishments so as not to detract from the fab image and sentiment, well what more does it really need.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:-
Crafts and me- monochrome
The shabby tearoom- white plus one and bright and cheerful
crafts for eternity-colour challenge
Digi doodles-anything goes

This next card is for the sketch challenge, I know I've done them out of order but as I said I've not had time to print off the clown to do the bling card as I didn't realise thats what I had to do , and I'd got all organised and done another image for the bling challenge before seeing we had to use the clown, confused yet? I'll soon have you all as confused as me.

Well the sketch challenge was wednesdays mini challenge and I decided initially I'd do a passing your driving test card but it sort of changed to become either a passing your driving test or a good luck card for a driving test or I suppose a bon voyage card too as I used the LOTV believe in your dreams sentiment. The image is a cute monkey driving their car and as most of my sons friends who seem to be doing driving lessons seem to be girls I decided to do it in pinl with a british racing green car, although my son then corrected me and said it was actually Irish racing green first, either way it's dark green.

I was dubious at first about my colour scheme but when I used the leather embossed pink card for the base it all seemed to come together especially with the flowers that just seemed to balance the card.

The image was coloured with Promarkers and I added brads to the wheel hubs, and used craftworks candy for the flower centres.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

The ribbon girl-pink and green
Catch the bug mini challenge-sketch
Tanda-pink and brown
Truely scrumptious-pink,brown and green
Simon says-bingo, brads,flowers and ribbon
Cooking it up with Katie-use green brads
Cute card Thursday-recipe 1image or ribbon, 2 brads, 3 faux brads or flowers your choice

My next card is for the Thursday challenge and that was birthday. I decided to use this flowers image as not everyone likes girly cards but this is still sort of girly. I coloured with Sakura pens and stuck to 3 main colours, teal, turquoise and brown and oops can't count 4 colours green for the stalks. I wanted it to be bright and cheerful and the flowers sort of reminded me of art deco and enammelling hence the sakura pens. I added brown and turquoise ribbons and recoloured a silver peel off with promarkers so it stayed with the colour scheme. The base card I dry embossed with a fiskars board and the layer is white glitter card for added sparkle.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Sarah Hurley-birthday girl
Paperstar-use 2 of ribbon,stamped image embossing or die cut and some or all of colours turquoise, teal,brown and deep pink
MAWTT-layout and option flowers

This card is for todays challenge and todays mini challenge is anything goes. I decided I'd make a get well card using this cute ladybird in the jam jar. I wanted to make it bright and cheerful so stuck to red, yellow and green for the colour scheme. I kept it simple and used polka dot paper for the cross band. I wrote the sentiment to keep the colours matching, never sure how true colours are on my printer.
This card I would like to enter into the following challenges:-

Claudia and co.- red,green and yellow
Crafty creations-polka dots and a bird(not sure if my ladybird will count?if not never mind)
wild orchid crafts-lets be sentimental

Saturday hope I'm not too late?

Here is my last card for the catch th bug mini challenges, I finally got around to printing it in between taking my son to the dental hospital, his mouth is too small for all the teeth he has and he has to have 2 out, one top and one bottom, we went to the Dental hospital as as he has never had anything done other than check-ups out dentist though as he still gets hyped up at 16 it would be best done at the hospital. Anyway managed to print this cute clown whilst cooking dinner and got around to blinging him up this morning, so now just got to post and link and hope I'm not too late. 
I decided glitter was the best thing for bling and though I'm sure I will have forgotten about this card come september when my nephew is 5 thought I'd work on a card for him. He is autistic so thought he might like the bright glitter and big number 5, now just to remember and put it somewhere safe?!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Cards for men-lets party
Creative Cowgirls-turquiose and brown
Stamp something-cute things
Papercutz-anything goes
Charisma cardz-magic numbers
creative cottage-shaped cards
