Evening everyone!well i hope you're all enjoying your's?I mojo has returned and i have been a busy bee,made another 3 card's tonight will post them tommorrow as got to wait for glue to dry before can take pics.Anyway onto these card's...
This first card was made using a gorgeous sarah kay stamp which i coloured with whispers pens,the paper's are papermania,craftwork card's sentiment,x-cut retro flower punch,craftwork card's jelly tots,brown dmc thread,dovecraft brown sheer ribbon.I added a doodled border to frame the image.
This is the inside...i have used matching paper's and notelet,felt flower cut with a cuttlebug die,x-cut flower punch and jelly tot centre.I inked all the edgeds with brown versa color ink.

The second was made using the new 'SMIRK' paper's and stamps.I really do love this range it's just so fun,however many of the paper's are like this and don't leave much room for you to make your mark and as the girls are just so cute i did'nt want to cover them up so i hand stitched a border to add a frame and some interest.I kept the card simple as i think the paper is busy enough.I used one of the images from the stamp sets and coloured her with whispers pens,i handstitched another border...i can't seem to make card's without stitching lately lol.I added some gems to add a bit of sparkle and finished it with a craftwork card's sentiment which i inked with a pink versa color inkpad.

I have picked up a couple of awards which i havent got round to posting yet so i'd just like to say thankyou to michelle and lyndsey for thinking of means alot.thanks for looking.hugs amanda xx
