Double Trouble

This is the card I made for my daughter, for her twin daughters' childminder.
I stamped the images with versafine and then coloured them using promarkers. I then mounted them on a pink square card which I had prepared with cut out buntings from freebie papers and a tiny rosebud paper. The sentiment was computer generated as I hadn't got a suitable text stamp.
Inside the card it read: It takes someone special to be a good childminder, thank you for looking after us.
The images did resemble the girls a bit too as one twin has slightly darker hair than the other, although her hair is NEVER neat as she pulls out her hair bobbles just as soon as they are put in!

Once upon a fairytale

I made this gatefold ATC using versafine ink, a 'big and juicy' inkpad and some of my favourite Lavinia stamps, along with many others from my stamp boxes. I love building the picture as I stamp away, it is so therapeutic.

First Communion Card

My daughter asked me to make a First Communion card for her friend's little one. Not being entirely sure what she wanted I made two for her to choose from. She loved them both but chose the blue one.
I would like to enter the mauve one into the Scrappy Frogs Challenge
and the Stampin' Sisters CAS Challenge please.

' Mother and foal'.

This is the 40th birthday card I made for my best friend's hubby, who also just happens to be our local vicar.

I used stamps from one of my favourite suppliers, Lavinia Stamps, black versafine ink and one of my much loved big and juicy inkpads for sponge colouring. I hope you like it.

Hello everyone- at last I'm posting something -I hope!!

Well, I don't know what I'm doing but having a go anyway. Hope that this might be the beginning of my blogging, as up till now haven't really had a clue what to do (still don't LOL).
I've been making some ATCs tonight using my encaustic waste for backgrounds and some faux postage stamps I've made. I hope you like them.
