A Couple of Cards

It's been one hectic month with the Cheltenham show and workshops. The Create & Stitch Show at Cheltenham Racecourse earlier in the month was great. I shared a stand with a fellow demo, Ronnie from Swindon and it went really well. We had lots of interest, loads of workshop bookings and several demo leads. People were really 'wow'ed by the demos! So all in all, it was lots of fun, we met loads of great ladies and it was very worthwhile! But a lot of work and effort - as evidenced by my lack of blogging lately, sorry!

So here are a couple of recent cards for you:

- after seeing Ronnie demo the Bold Butterfly set, I just had to get it and this is my first, fast and furious card made with the set. I just used the 2-step stampin' technique with pixie pink, stampin off the bold image first to give a lighter inked image and then stamped the outline in the same ink colour.

This second card was made with a Sizzix Bigz 'J' letter die - for my nephew Joel's birthday.

I cheated with a patterned card blank, stamped a happy birthday sentiment, wrapped some ribbon around the J and stuck it on with 3D foam. Most of the Bigz letters are too big to fit on an A6 card - but the J was a perfect fit.
BFN - I will be back soon, I promise!
