The same only different

I did these two cards yesterday.
I think it was carry over from the OCC challenge of two colours.
Anyway, onwards and upwards as the saying goes.
This one is done on a base of Bazzil bling CS.
(Not the best idea I've had, as, no matter how careful I am,
the crease splits when it's folded).
The paper is SU's Patterns DP in bashful Blue. The Image is one I took from my millions of neglected Hug Bug collections. This one is from 'Love Birds'.
The ribbon is from my stash and the swirls are punched out with my Paper Shapers Swirl punch. (Great punch but a bit moody). Mounted on a Nestie scalloped oval and I distressed the outside of the image with a Color Box 'Queue' Cat's Eyes ink pad, in 'Creamy Brown'.

This one has a base of Bazzil Bling again. (I don't learn do I LOL). The blue matt is SU's Bashful Blue CS. I stamped the message (Penny Black), on white Bazzil Bling CS. Then mounted it on a spare piece of the Blue Bazzil cut with a Nestie Scalloped circle. The corners are cut from my Sizzix Architectural Accents #4 The flowers were two step stamped from the Delight in Life set from SU. Cut out and mounted on foam pads for a bit of dimention.

Pam and I are off to Derby for the day tomorrow. We have a get together every so often. We craft , chatter, eat and generally have pretty fabulous day. We usually take turns in who's house we congregate in and it works out well. We all get a change of scene and have a great day out. I may even make a card or two! Thanks for stopping by, I love to see you. Viv xx
