Very pleased with what I've made today. This being a card for the sugar nellie challenge blog (see link on the left) you have to use any nellie stamp and it had to have the coloure orange somewhere on the card. For this I used my latest nellie stamp 'Lola with bunny'
The 2nd is also using another of my new nellie's this time it's 'Duck in boots' I bought this one thinking if I coloured the bib/boots and flower in either blue or pink it could be used as a 'new baby' card. My bestest buddy is pregnant at the moment so thought I'd use the stamp to practise on some baby cards! Only made a blue one today as I'd already got the papers laying on my desk, hope it's not an omen as she would really really love a little girl this time as she already has 2 boys!!
Last card and yep you guessed it, another of my new nellie's (only got the 'bunny' left to play with, so watch this space!) this is the oh so cute 'Simon and Lola' and I decided to make make Matthew another valentine's card, I always tuck one away in his dinner tin along with choccie hearts or something similar, this year it's a jelly rose thing on a stick!! Still very unsure about my watercolouring on these images, I have no idea how to do the shading properly or nicely, I've been lucky with the penny black images as I can go onto a website that sells them and they show the image coloured!!!! anyhow here's my lovey card for hubs
