In the last couple of weeks, my head has been about 3 days behind real life I guess. I've been caught on the hop twice this week with cards that I should have made and left till the last minute. One of those cards was for a rather special birthday girl who you might have heard of, young Sarah at S J Crafts. In celebration of her birthday week there have been / are various offers on at the shop and if you are quick you might just catch one. Don't forget to have a look at the challenge which closes soon too.
I used the Papermania Linen capsule collection and went for feminine but simple and elegant.
This next one was for my Step-Dad. The monkey stamp was one of the many 99p ones that I've picked up from Hobbycraft recently. I got this one for little boy cards and a simple outline of a princess castle for little girl cards. I thought I would try it out on this rather hurried affair for my Dad - I stamped it, coloured it with Promarkers, then thought, now what? I rifled through my scraps box and found this ancient piece of handmade paper from the days when I bought any pack of paper under £5. The aqua circles matched the aqua in the monkey's hat and so it all turned out okay in the end.
Bye for now
