The card I have made for my mum...

Orange and yellow are her favourite colours, so I decided to base the card around these colours which I havent tried before. I am quite pleased with the result actually, although the tags are a bit streaky from my printer, but I still think it looks great (Ok, so I am bigging myself up but I am impressed :D)

Once again everything that is on the card (Minus the green piece of ribbon and Magnolia Stamp) are printed from Creative Park. I have coloured Tilda in using Reeves watercolour pencils and used a tiny bit of glitter for the candle. For the insert, I have printed the 3 presents at the bottom right hand corner and put this - When it comes to mothers, there are lots of them about, but you are the very very best, of that there is no doubt!

I printed the background paper, flower, ribbon borders and tags from Creative Park for free (They are actually scrapbook papers, but they have some lovely stuff on there!). I Used a piece of hammer effect A5 card folded in half for the actual card itself, and coloured the Magnolia image in using watercolour pencils. Tah Dah, One card! Im quite impressed with it actually!

A week has passed...

And I have managed to do quite a bit this week!

I got a lovely parcel from Lynn from Stamping Mad forum - I cant thank her enough! :)

I want to 'Big Up' Creative Park and Freecycle! I needed a printer, and put an advert on Freecycle, and the following evening I picked up a Lexmark All in one Printer/Scanner/Copier/Fax! Well impressed (Apart from the ink costing a fortune!) Then, to test my printer, I found the Canon Scrapbook website, which has some FAB background papers and tags!

Alex has been out tonight, and I have managed to get these done:

They are both on white 'Hammered' card, and all the embelleshments are from Creative Park. I have added a bit of glitter on both cards, and stamped some little shiny stars on the second card using a whiskars stamp. The images are both coloured in using Reeves watercolour pencils.
