A few thank you cards

Hello All

Well I have been creating, finally I hear you say, I returned to the scene of the crime though lol. When I first started crafting I loved decoupage and would sit for hours cutting and sticking them together, that didn't change until I found my copics and my love of digi and now real stamps began.

Like most my first stamps were penny black but I could never colour them in so they got resigned to the back of the drawer and I had forgotten I had them until I was looking for a sentiment stamp and found a pile of them. So the first of my cards today is using a penny black clear stamp, not sure which set but it is too cute. The papers were in my snippet drawer so I am entering Di's snippet challenge with it. Sorry about the really bad picture i hadn't realised how much the colours were out but it is too late now as it is already in the post.

My second card is using the Forever Friends Black and Gold CD (unbelievably free with a magazine) I used the decoupage and papers from the cd for this. I have never really been a fan of cd crafting, too much faffing for me but this cd is so easy to use it practically uses itself.

Thanks for looking

Wow this year is whizzing past

Hello everyone, this year is certainly spinning by. I seemed to have blinked and it is almost the end of February lol. I have been making a few cards but not many, so this week I decided to enter a challenge to see if this got me out of my creative rut.

I used an image from my new CD "The Next Big Thing" from Just Inklined. I am not normally a fan of CD's especially as I have a mac and most don't work on it, but this is the exception. It doesn't run automatically on my mac but I have to say it is well worth the money. Full of digi stamps, decoupage and coloured digis I think i will have enough to keep me going for a while.

So onto the card, I used the football image form the digi prints section (also printed the rugby one and cant wait to use it too) coloured with my copics and no glossy accents in sight.

Papers: Summer Driggs "Freedom ain't Free"
Cardstock: "Cherry Cobbler" Stampin Up and Papermill "Navy"
