A productive Day!

Pam came over yesterday and we had a great old time.

I managed to make three cards which, considering all the cups of tea,

the bacon butties, curry hubby made for us and trip to Craft Central in Congleton, was pretty good going.

This is my favourite. It uses the stamp set and papers I got from Jennifer. (I will end up wearing it out)!!! The CS is Bazzil naturally. I LOVE this card. :0)

This one is another for the Friday Sketchers latest challenge.......No 9

It's slightly larger than the previous one. 6" x 6" against a 5"x 5"
I wanted to play with my newest Magnolia stamp, the fence.
Not 100% sure I should have used both these stamps together without masking,
but hey ho, I did. What do you think?
The papers are from the same pad as the other challenge card.
Each element is the same. It's just a change of colourway.
Oh! Except for the sentiment. That's a Hero Arts stamp.

The next one is a bit of whimsy..........

I did this at the Derby Dabbler's stamping day last Sunday.
The theme was Children, babies or teens.

I HAD to use my adorable Whipper Snapper li'l Ballerina. I used my Crop-a-dile to make the holes and just threaded two oddments of ribbon through them. I stamped the sentiment with Brilliance ink .... 'Pearlescent Orchid'. The sentiment is by Penny Black. The card is A6 size. 10.5cm x 14cm.

This one is a 'just felt like it' card. LOL

I got some Studio G little sroll stamps at Craft Central and wanted to try them out. The sentiments are from a boxed set that I forgot I had!!! They are from Hero Arts. The DP is from the K & Co Hopscotch paper pad. The ribbon through the eyelets is a bit of a feature I just kind of 'did'!
