A new post at last

Well I'm not sure where the time is going, I'm half way through my Summer holidays already. I've done some crafting since my last post - but didn't manage to get my projects photographed before they were dispatched. Lots of birthdays and Anniversarys coming - so hopefully a few more posts before I head off to Cornwall for two weeks in a tent. Lets hope that the sun shines.

Two cards, I seem to be going through a brown phase, it's just because I'm loving my new Distress inks and foam pads. The anniversary card is for my brother and sister-in-law for their 21st wedding anniversary, I never forget it because it is the day after my own. We have been married 15 years tomorrow, will post hubbies card later. The image is from LOTV, I've had it for ages but I don't think I've used it before - it is beautiful though. The 80th birthday card is for my Aunt who will be celebrating this landmark birthday while we are away. I haven't quite got the layout right and I spent ages moving things around before I got the glue out. Not sure about the Tilda either - hey ho - that's just how it goes sometimes. The flowers I made with my new Tim Holtz dies, I think that is why it didn't quite work out as I hoped, trying to play with all my new stuff at once! The stamps I used are from Kanban, the Tilda is coloured with distress inks and Stampin up watercolours.

Thanks for stopping by.
