Another family birthday, this time my lovely great-niece, Eve, who will be three soon.  I've not used my Magnolia stamps for a little while, but thought this would be perfect for her.  It also gave me an excuse to use my new Sheena Douglass 'Water Ripple' embossing folder.  The image was coloured using Promarkers and I punched little shells to finish off the card.

A Touch of Pink

I had lots of lovely, positive comments about the cards I made for the Vintage and Handmade Crafts Fair at school today.  The cards using the Lavinia stamps are always popular and I even had someone who was also selling cards on their stall come over to ask me what stamps I'd used and how I'd done the backgrounds. I think she may soon be a new Lavinia customer! I had a lovely day talking to many of my past pupils, many I'd not seen for quite a few years!
Here is one of the cards I sold today.

I'd like to enter this card for the following challenges:

I've found another way to use my Stampin' Up owl punch.  Minions!

Cards for Craft Fair

What a busy few days, making cards for my craft stall at the Vintage and Handmade Craft fair coming up.  Here are a couple of examples of cards I made for Mothering Sunday.

I love these stamps for making cards for children. The first one so perfect for Harry Potter fans.  The stamped images were coloured with Promarkers.

I was so pleased to find a girl football stamp.  Girls like football too!  There are two football teams where I live, so I've made cards showing both kits.
