Hi Mum – pick one !!

These are the cards I’ve done for img125img126the diamond wedding.

The first one hasn’t scanned well – it has this sentiment on a sparkly acetate border on a plain white card. Much prettier than it sounds. Or there’s the one on right ->

You choose, I’ll write in the other and post them both to you.

Hope you had a good day despite Dad’s leg. Give him my love xx

Oooh ! Oooh! Watch me enter my first competition!!

img124This card has been brewing for a while and I was given the kick I needed from a post by Claire Brennan from Waltzing Mouse. So….

The rules are 1.Use green (think I scored that one …!) and 2. Use your favourite stamp. This was the tricky bit as I don’t have a favourite stamp. Honest. However, this Papertrey Ink set was uninked and had been drooled over for several months before I bought it (and then, because I went back to school, couldn’t play with!) so I figured that would count. I bought this set becasue I knew I could use it to make card sets to gift to people. I’m pretty much on my own as a stamper, but have lots of people who like what I do, so I often give out card sets as gifts – cheap and easy !! ;D I do love this set though and I’m looking forward to seeing how many combos I can come up with – roll on the tattie-picking holidays !!

Fingers crossed that I win – the prize is FABULOUS!!! I have drooled over each and every set that Claire has sneakie peeked over the last few days and I would so love to win them all! It would certainly add a few more well loved sets to my collection – and solve a few more card set problems !! XX

Another Oz-somestamps sketch

This is no. 88. I love the fact there are measurements – saves that second guessing. I also love these stamps by Claire Brennan http://waltzingmouse.blogspot.com/ This is the Earth Angel set and she has some pretty fabby ones to come. Paper is a Sarah Lugg from years ago. This was fun  –  img123thanks ladies for your inspiration !

My interpretation of Oz-somestamps sketch

A wee bit different cos we have different size base cards in UK and it just didn’t look right when spaced as sketch. Good opportunity to use scraps !!! Stamps used were Papermanis and Hero Arts.
