Swap Card

This card has been made in monotone sepia, i love using  just one colour, it can be quite effective.

Rainbow Ladys Faux Postage Challenge

This is the first time i've ever done a challenge.I used a Artemio stamp set and distress inks, on a A5 card. I inked all over with 3different shades of ink and then stamped over the top, decoupaged the butterfly and dragon fly, then splashed a bit of h20 over,lol. Hope you like it.

Good Morning all from a sunny Worcester. I have a few Christmas cards to show you. Nothing complicated or special, just easy. I have made a lot of these to send to friends and relatives. No embellishments at all, as i want to cut down the cost of the post when the time arrives.I have embossed the centre of card with a small circular nestie and cut out the same size circle. I have stamped around the edges with a LOTV stamp and coloured with pro markers. I also went round edges of card with a distress ink-I have used old stamps that haven't seen the light of day for quite a while, for the centre images.
I will try and put some more on at a later date,it has taken me ages to do this with O/H aid-lol-
Maybe one day i will pick it all up, but at mo it is all just sailing right over my head. I think it must be an age thing.!!
Enjoy your day

Good Sunday morning every one, I am still in shock at starting a blog. I will persist. I am a bit of a technophobe, so this is a bit like abseiling down Mount Everest for me. Now dont get laughing, but actually finding my blog was a mammoth task, it is now in 'my favorits'. Getting a picture on here will be something else, i have taken some piccies of xmas cards that i have been making over the last few weeks. I will get hubby to help and show me what to do, remembering is the problem.!!

Well, i did it, i got a blog.

Good grief, i did it, i got a blog. I never thought i would, see, i only needed a little push Cynthia. Now all i need to do is take piccies of work in progress, when finished of course and way we goo.......
