And oh so still, it is the children's first day back to school, and the house seems so still and empty, still it's only 30 minutes and I have to leave to go and collect them, I wonder if dd's new shoes have lasted all day with out any scuffs, probably not.
It has given me a bit of time to make some cards though, the first one is for a friend who had invited us to his birthday barbecue this morning.
The stamp is from papermania its a mans world couch potato stamp set, the ribbon is from stash the patterned paper is from dovecraft funky vintage collection and the shapes were cut using a shape cutter and sixxiz button die. Cards for men are really hard to visualise, but I think I'm slowly getting there.
This next card had been made using a Sarah Kay colouring page, I have coloured it in using prismacolour pencils, and layered it on 2 nellie seddon( I think thats what they are called ) nesting dies, the paper was from a free set with a card making magazine this month.,and I have embellished it with a bit of pink ribbon and some purple hearts on the corners, and an especially for you sentiment.
Thanks for popping by Jo
