Another couple of cards which have been keeping me busy, this one is a birthday card for a friend. The image is from hero arts, coloured with pro markers and decoupaged. The patterned papers are from CCSR and the sentiment is computer generated.

This second card is for Clare Curds sketch challenge on the docrafts site. I ended up using a stamp and papers from CCSR although I had intended to use one or the other. Again it was coloured using pro markers (which i am still struggling with). I was checking dawns stamping thoughts today and watched her tutorial on this kind of card and just had to give it a go. Her tutorial gives great instructions - although I did attach it to a card blank to make it more of a "secret message" card

Sorry its been a while since I've posted. With one thing or another I havent had five minutes. I did get my cards completed for Scotland but, unfortunately as I was literally working on them up until the last minute I didnt get to photograph many of them. I have a couple of pics though - the cards are pretty simple, made using my beloved cuttlebug and nesties.

This is the first of hopefully many Mothers Days Cards I am making. They are going to an art gallery in Scotland and I have to have them ready by Friday morning. I'll keep posting as they are ready. This one is made with Laura Ashley products. The main image is decoupaged with ribbons and buttons added for interest.
