A couple of cards

It's been a while since work and real life seem to have taken over at the moment so sadly not been much time for crafting or blogging. Here are a couple of cards that have been made in a hurry in the meantime. Much of the inspiration for all of these was from combining my favourite "bits" from the most recent Stampers' Sampler so thanks to all of those artists (well worth a look if you haven't already seen it - you can order from http://www.stampington.com/ if you are struggling to get a copy)

First the card for my father-in-law in California. Unsurprisingly it will be late, Bill but we were thinking of you all the same ;o)


Next was the tag I made for my friend Ann. And again not exactly posted in a timely manner.


Lastly is the card for my lovely sister-in-law Sheila - now this might arrive on time and the shock might be too much for her - have a great birthday!

I've got to get that stamp you've used in the first card love the shades you've used to create the mottled effect.
Ann is bound to love that tag it's gorgeous.

Hello Seona - I hopped over here from your knitblog. These cards are fantastic - like walking into a dusty antique shop in some foreign city & finding something more magical than you ever expected. Cheers - Lisa
