Birthday cards for stock

Look out........... my mojo came back and gave me a kick last night! It may not be as good as some card makers I see, but I enjoyed making them and the trouble is I now want to do other colours, may be I should look at another stamp to use, I have purchased a lot from a recent show and may be getting some more this weekend from Doncaster race course show!

Think I like the brown one best so far, but I do like the smaller card for the image as used in the pink one.

Some bits and bobs from June.

Not been very crafty just lately, but here are a few of my latest creations. I wanted some where to clip ATCs that I receive that give me ideas, so I thought I would decorate a peg, her name is Purple Peggy! Metallic purple paint on the peg, some of those folt art ones. Then I also painted a squashed bottle cap. Inside the bottle cap I stuck some sequins with glossy accents, I then added the painted head. She has some beaded locks of hair to finish.

I then thought I would like to try one of those grunge paper roses. You stamp the flower a number of times on to a distressed piece of grunge paper, and then I followed instructions from a you tube video, on how to cut and fold and glue them, I am very pleased with it, just have not got any where to use it yet. Will make a couple more soon so a set of three with leaves will go on a project of some sort.
