Hurray, its all gone!

At last the snow has gone!  I was beginning to think it never would. 

I've been off work these last few days with the dreaded gastric 'bug'.  Yuk!  Luckily its not been so bad I couldn't do any crafting and the bathroom is next door to my craft room!

Here's a couple of cards I've made - I've got a couple of friends whose birthdays are coming up so I'm pleased I've had the time to make some.

I was quite pleased with this one as it didn't start out like this at all.  The card gradually evolved as I went along.  I used the Kanban papers and stamps, together with the Red Hot Bed card template.  I decoupaged the little teddies behind the characters and also the little owls, which you can't see properly.  I coloured in the characters with my water colour pencils.

Now this one is a bit of a cheat.  I was looking at Joanna Sheen's gallery using the RHS Horticultural CD cos I can't make up my mind whether to buy it or not, and this layout caught my eye.  So using my Jayne Netley CD I printed off various bits and copied her card.  I'm really pleased with how this came out, so I used the same layout but different colour ways and the dandelion head papers and came up with this card.

I've made quite a few more, but I'll get back to you later.  Enjoy your day. x
