Thank You

Afternoon folks. The card for today is this little thank you card made using the Poppy stamp set from Hobby Art. I was lucky enough to see Jenny from Hobby Art at the Newbury show and she demonstrated this set and let me take away the sample which was a great help. I have coloured the image using Brush Markers and a water brush then mounted the image onto blue card. The red panel was embossed using the Cuttlebug and the Thank you was a stamp from Clarity. Seemples.... and when a card is needed in a hurry like this one was then very quick as well!

1 Today

Just a quickie to show today. I made this cute frog card for our friend's little daughter's first birthday. I think the frog stamp was from Funstamps which I stamped in memento ink and coloured with Promarkers. The 1 today was stamped with memento ink and again coloured with Promarkers. Both the stamps were from Crafters Companion.  I added green gingham paper to the top left corner and finished the card off by adding a stamped happy birthday banner to run diagonally across the card.
Told you it was quick.....thanks for looking and see you again soon.

Evening all....Hope you are all surviving the lovely summer weather. We are currently in a lovely cottage in Devon dodging showers and enjoying fun walks with Ellis. Today was brilliant. Katie and myself went out to explore with Ellis and ended up walking up and down hills that had turned themselves into mini streams. ( Trev was conveniently parked in front of the telly watching the beach volley ball) We asked  some locals if they really were streams and they said "oh no you mean the flood!"lol. Anyway back to the card I have to show. This was a super quick card that I made the other day.I started off by stamping the mini and then covering with a mask. Then I stencilled the union jack from Stamps Away and then added the 13 and birthday boy on spellbinders dies. This card took minutes, can you tell.......
