Big Adventure

I've had this image for ages, and it keeps getting squashed in the little bag I keep my "ready-to-go" images in, so I thought I'd use it. I was going to use it as a birthday card, but then found the perfect sentiment!

Sentiment: "If life were easy" by Create with TLC
Paper: Brown with white polkadots - Daisy & Dandelion paper pack
Embellishment: Green/blue/white ribbon

Rock Star!

Here's a card I've made for my godson who will be 6 years old at the weekend. I always struggle to find boy images as I don't have many stamps that aren't cute or girly!! But I had some images stamped for me, and decided that this was perfect!

Image: "Rock Idol" from Sugar Nellie Manga collection, coloured with Promarkers
Papers: Dovecraft "Masculine" paper pack
Embellishments: Star eyelet, die-cut sentiment, inking around the edge of the card.

Mum & Dad Inky Impressions Anniversary!

Papers: Papermania "Love" paper pack - spotted and stripy paper

Black & White Forever Friends

Well, I'm finally getting round to posting some of the cards I made before we went to Cornwall last week! I had a sudden rush of cards to do, and thought it would be a good time to try out some of the monochrome images I'd coloured!
This card is for my male cousin - I think black & white monochrome cards are pretty good for boy cards!
