By gum...

... I'm getting a few posts in at the moment!!! Just about to start making a shepherds pie, but before I do just wanted to blog a couple of makes:

This is for Ians dad whose birthday is in a couple of weeks:

Quite plain and simple and pre-coloured LOTV square put onto kraft card, some of my new paper from Echo park, then added twine and a button.

I would like to enter this into:
4 crafty chicks - twine
cute card thursday - c&s
Pixie dust - boys will be boys.
Freshly brewed - c&s (less than 3 embelishments)

Next card is a bit different for me trying to get adventurous with my colouring again!! erm... see what you think...

She is coloured with promarkers and matted onto black card and striped paper - then I have die cut a circle from some flocked card I had - then added ribbon and flower and card candy from my stash.

I would like to enter this into

Crafty Sentiments - punches/diecuts.
Craft us crazy - anything goes
Meljens designs - use black

Thanks for looking
