I’m dating this to publish after Mother’s Day – she may be back to checking my blog !!
I am really pleased with this – lots of o-o-o-o-o-ld techniques and stamps that I used at the start of my stamping journey, and you forget how gorgeous they can be ! I was completely inspired by Jacqueline from Jacqueline’s Craft Nest, although I can’t find the card I was specifically inspired by – sorry ! But her site is a gorgeous way to get some inspiration !
So my old techniques – alcohol ink on glossy card (then couldn’t remember what ink you needed to stamp with on glossy !) and versamark ‘shadowing’ on the base card
* images – floral ones are all old Hero Arts ( from over 10 yrs ago probably !)
* sentiment ? – one of the first I ever bought as just rubber, when that option wasnt even really available in the UK !
I hope Mum likes it !

Okay, maybe not my version but this one I CASEd certainly hits the button ! Neutral enough to give to any male !
I’ve used it to make 3 cards, 1 birthday and 2 thank-yous. The thank-you cards are going to my Pastor and the chairman of our church as they were both very supportive last week when I got baptised.
Anyhow, trying to fit some inking into pauses of frantic cleaning and organising – back to school on Monday !
Stamps: Tree – Lovely As A Tree, Stampin’Up – birds ?
Sentiments : Thanks – Hero Arts (retired), Birthday Wishes – Teeny Trees, Waltzing Mouse, Bible Text – SmARTworks ( I think – company gone now )

This is a card for my boss who retires this week. She has been amazingly supportive over the seven years I have worked with her and will be a very hard act to follow. Here’s the card;
I CASE’d it from Janet over at Swanlady Impressions – such a beautiful card just called to me !
The main sentiment stamp on this is one that I love. It was possibly the first sentiment stamp I ever bought and it is surprisingly useful – I have made thank-you cards, retirement and sympathy cards with it. The one problem with it is that the rubber was mounted slighty off on the wood, making it a nightmare to stamp straight ! I recently bought a stamp positioner and that made ALL the difference ! No more wasted card !
Ummm….the other problem with this card is that I have no idea what the stamp company is – there is no info on the label – sorry !
* close text script is Hero Arts, as are the flowers.
* white embossed leavy vines is Judikins cube

But fighting it 😦
Here’s a card that I am entering for two challenges, the A Passion For Papertrey – Inky Love Required, and – a new site for me – Tuesday Morning Sketches. Deets below;
Images: Cling Dots are by Hero Arts, last circle is all Tags-Its #10 from Papertrey Ink, a set I have never used before, so it qualifies for APFP challenge !
This card is based on this week’s challenge in Tuesday Morning Sketches #171 so I am entering it there too !
