Rushing In....

Morning!

Just a quick post as the boys and I are getting ready to go away.

As you know Andy was away this weekend and I made the most of having some crafty time and made 4 cards. I know that's not a lot but when I go from one crafty night to the next having done nothing (not even unpacked my bags), it's really quite impressive!

Anyway, I used sketches for two of them, the challenges for which will close while we're away and I'm not sure if we'll have wifi so wanted to get them posted now.

These are both made using stamps I bought at the SECC in March and up till now have been unloved.... oops!

Hi Susan - have a lovely break...
Two totally gorgeous cards, I love your colouring of that sweet fairy and the sentiment on the second card is beautiful. PS - (I am fairly certain any colouring you did with pastel colours would look wonderful)!
