I hope your week is going well so far...I have started the week behind on my 'to do' list and it doesn't look like I am going to catch up!
I have a few cards to share today. First up is a card for the Thinking of You theme at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge:
I have also had a play with watercolouring to join in with the current challenge at the AAA Card Challenge:
I used inktense pencils with this lovely Hero Arts poppy stamp which is one of my all time favourites. I stamped the sentiment from Avery Elle on to vellum and splattered some pale blue on the card base. Given this is a Hero Arts image I will also link up at the Anything Goes Challenge over at A2Z Scrapbooking.
There you go - a whole post without a Christmas card....quite out of character!
I hope you like today's cards. Thanks for stopping by - I do appreciate your comments :)
Bye for now,
Great cards again! Love the beautiful coloured poppies and the sentiment on the first is super! Hope you catch up on your to-do list by the end of the week... xReplyDelete

What...no Christmas cards???!!! I can't stop making them either, is going to be quite a shock to the system when January comes around and Christmas has finished! Love your one-layer wonder, the sentiment is beautiful. And those look incredible, especially with the blue, would never have thought to put those colours together. Your so clever!ReplyDelete
