A couple more new cards

I had decided last night that I'd make some cards today as we had been told that we wouldn't have an electricity today. That never eventuated, but I did make some cards.  I'm in love with what I've done with this first one, and am reluctant to let anyone else have it. It is an invitation to go out to our families for dd's 9th birthday in December.

Card stock and patterened papers are Stampin up. I've coloured Butterfly Tilda with copics. I've always wanted to try making an easel card, and now I've made 3 of this card, its not hard to do at all. The rose I found instructions for in the Magnolia magazine.

This next card was whipped up for dh's brother who is going into hospital on Tuesday to have his tonsils out. I used some scraps from the other cards to make it.

The stamp is from House of Mouse. Coloured with copics again.

A work in progress

I'm working on a card at the moment and need some input from my favourite internet friends. Tell me: Do you think its balanced? Is it too much, not enough? etc etc.

A new project

I decided I'd make something pretty for dd for her birthday next month. She is turning 9 and is getting past the age of toys, making it harder to find things for her. So after seeing a project on the Lime Tart blog, I decided to do something similar. Using Tilda stamps I made a set of 4 co-ordinating pictures all nicely framed.

The paper and cardstock is all from Stampin Up, and the punch is Martha Stewart. Some of the ribbon is Stampin Up, the ribbon in the first picture was wrapped around an order from Lime Tart. :) The images are all coloured in with copics (my favourite colouring medium).
