Just a couple

With family problems my mojo has totally disappeared but I managed to make a couple in the last few weeks.

The OSAAT challenge blog featured the following card as my design team entry for the 'Back to School' challenge.  The digital stamp is called 'Miss Whiplash' by Ike and it's available from the  Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps store.  I'm sure I'll use her again.

Something I made for my mother-in-law.

A card for a lovely friend.

White plus one other color

It's that time again at the One Stitch At A Time challenge blog and our theme this week is "white plus one other colour".  Our fab sponsor this week is Bunny Zoe's Crafts and you could win a £10 gift voucher if you use one of the hundreds of brilliant Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps found right here.

Entries using a non SBDS image will be entered into a draw for a gift voucher of $3 to spend in the store.  There's lots of brand new stamps on show so hurry on over.

I chose purple as my other colour and coloured this gorgeous image from Ike at SBDS and you can find it here.  The leaves and flowers are a mix of Memory Box (for the border and rolled flowers) and Marianne and Spellbinders dies for the leaves.  I've coloured the image with a mix of Copics and Promarkers.

I would like to enter the following:-

First Birthday in August

It's one of our chapter member's birthday tomorrow and one of several this month.  This is the little card I've sent.  I am loving these Kanban Steampunk stamps, they go so when with some of the other vintage items I've been buying recently.

The other two stamps I've used are form Crafty Individuals and a lovely flourish from Memory Box.
