A Tasty Twosome!! And a little Redemption!!!

Good Afternoon all!
I never quite know when I get 2 DT challenges on the same day whether to do 2 posts or a double! 
so Today I have gone with a double! 
Well after lasts week's poor attemp at a card, I think my mojo is returning!  I actually really like both my cards today!! Woo Hooo!!! so hopefully a little redemption for my last effort!
Firstly over at Basic Grey challenges we have gone for the theme of Bright and Bold colours!!!
Hmmmm think I got that theme covered!! Lol!! I love the way this card turned out!! and I am really chuffed with my colouring for once! 

this is Krista smith/ Saturated canary image Circus Trixie, she is coloured with my copics, and the papers are Basic grey June bug, I added the little tartan corner because Logan loved the paper and I think it goes great!! the flowers are WOC and the mat is a spellbinders die!
The challenges I would like to enter this wee lass into are:
Card Makin Mamas - 1 image 2 papers 3 embellishments(flowers, lace and gems!)
Stamptacular sunday challenge - patterns Galore!
Mariannes Divas - Anything goes and Dt call!
deep ocean - anything goes
My Second DT challenge today is for Craft Your Days away Challenge! our challenge this fortnight is Olympic Dreams, but any sport is ok!
I made this card for one of my hubbies golfing buddies who turned 50!!  And proudly Bugaboo have featured this card on their blog here!! Yaaay me!!! the image is of course bugaboo as is the sentiment! And look silly gus his ball is by his foot!!! Lol!! I have coloured the image with my copics, and the papers are again Basic grey, this time Oxford! I have used glossy accents on his glasses!
The challenges I would like to enter this card into are:
Cute card Thursday - clean and simple
cupcake crafts challenge - Great outdoors 
crafts for etenrity - summer sun
Catch the bug challenge - anything goes (hope I am eligible?)
Well I am off to bed! woke up with a cracking headache today! have been a wet lettuce since mammoth washing challenge last week!! (maybe it was the noxious gasses!!!! ROFL!!)
Have a great Saturday!
Biggest hugs
