Jean Luc playing with Claude - Sarah Kay

This was the card I made for Henry's 5th Birthday, I forgot to photo it before I gave it to him hence why it is photographed on the mantlepiece!

It is an old Sarah Kay image coloured in copics, but I think it looks just like H pleaying with my Dad's puppy! The papers are new in to Stamp and Create called MME Nostalgia.

I have matched it up with another PTW sketch - these are so fab when you have alot of cards to make at once, this is number #67.

Lola Lollipop - Kraftin Kimmie

Hello, happy saturday to you all.

This is one of my latest stamps, which I have used for the birthday card of one of my youngest sons friend.

The papers are a very old basic grey pad called Porcelain which I have odd sheets of left out of the three pads I had originally of it.  I have matched it up with kaisercraft pearls from Stamp and Create, the brads are an old purchase fromhobby house and the flowers are a very old selection from Prima (yes I am slowly trying to use up all of my stash as monies are tight). The lace I think was a ribbon girls purchase.

I have used PTW sketch #68. (I must admit I love using old sketches of Dawny P's to help get the mojo going after such a crafting absence)

A little bit of country - Sarah Kay

Hello, feeling better today and as both boys are now full time I am able to hopefully get into my craftroom more.

This is made for my sisters wedding anniversary tomorrow she will be married 5 years, they got married in the USA hence my choice of image, it was fun trying to get hold of them to say I had my son early, thankfully one of their best friends lived out there and she kindly got them to call me.

Image is a little bit of country got from Stamp and Create. Paper is kaisercraft vintage timeless, the flowers are woc, pearls are a rak of Heather, the lace is a scrap, the ribbon is again woc, and the sparkles on the flowers are from Stamp and Create.

I have followed PTW #72 sketch.
