A few makes to show!

I liked the card I made for the Stamp Something challenge so much that I made another card using the sketch, this time using a different colour scheme and image. This is my sisters favourite of the 2 but I still like my pink 1! I came accross the next card 1/2 done in my storage box a few days ago, I hadn't coloured the image at all! I just couldn't get the colouring right especially on the rabbits face though, could be the fact that it was an image I stamped before I started using watercolour papers!? Still it'll be given to someone, maybe one of the girls friends!The followning is my entry for the Tilda & Co challenge which is to make a 'non card' item, so I have made a cover for my post-it note pad, and I must admit to really really liking it a lot, I think it's just how well the papers, image, colours all work so well together.I've mounted Tilda on foam pads to give a bit of dimension and also added foam lettering and some gems to finish it off.
My final card for this post is a request from hubby for a card for his nephew who turns 16 today, he's a bit like the Harry Enfield character Kevin the teenager, not really into much except drinking and smoking with his mates (yes under age I'm afraid, but that's the case with a lot of teens these days). Crikey when I think back to the sweet little boy who used to want to play or wrestle with Matthew when I first met him 8 years ago, it makes you realize how fast time passes by!


Well it was back to school today, YIPPEE!! and NO problems with either of the girls! I am so proud of Hollie (3 1/2) bless her, I know I wrote of all of the tears and trouble getting her to stay when she first started, and she was up first and dressed first this morning, I asked her what she wanted to wear for Nursery last night and after a bit of thought said her school dress, bless her, they don't have to wear uniform but that is what she chooses!

Back tomorrow with my 2nd DT card for A Spoon Full of Sugar (link on the right >) hope you can pop along and join our challenge and be in with a chance of winning another lovely stamp!
