Your'e too kind

Todays card was made using Mercy's Tuesday sketch MTSC82 from a few weeks ago. I made this card as a thankyou card for the sponsor of a golf day, the club colours are green & white. The argyle embossing folder is great to use with golf themed cards.

Ride the wave

I made todays card for the CCEE Stampers sketch CCEE1030, somewhere in my notes I forgot to write the floral theme. I needed a card for a young male birthday and it was a bit hard to put flowers on it. I guess I will probably be like Tosh and get buzzed for the missing flowers, so I will have to try and make another one soon, it is a great sketch.

You light the way

I volunteer for Red Cross in the kiosk at the local hospital, this card was made for our convener. Happy Birthday Neil. I love this image ( I use it quite a lot for male cards) it is so easy to use watercolours. This time I have use water colour crayons instead of my pencils, I think they give the image a softer effect. The I have used is TESC117.

Stamps: PSX , Verse - Penny Black
Paper: Chocolate,blue,white card

Going golfing

Ahh it is good to be able to have something to post at last. The last few months I have been rather lazy only making the odd card, when it was necessary. I even made a card for my niece on the birth of her twins after I gave it to her I realized that I had fogotten to take a photo, a mistake I hope not to make again.
July is a busy month with some birthdays, births and a graduation so come back again and you may just see something new.
Todays card was the last one I made just on Thursday in fact. It was for my husband's 50th birthday not something that he like to be reminded of. I knew what stamp I wanted to use, as he is a very keen golfer, just like me, but it was not until I saw Mercy's tuesday sketch challenge MTSC83 this week that I knew I had the right layout. I love the way it looks like this guy has just hit the golf ball out of sight. I used my cuttlebug folder to make the dimples on the ball and layered the nestabilities circle dies for the shapes.
