Josies card and my fishy tutorial card.

Good morning lovelies - how are you today? Good I hope. Things here are good. I went to a meeting last night after Lucy had been to Brownies - it was the final meeting before a Brownie holiday - not this weekend - but the weekend after. She's so excited bless her - 2 nights away from home with her friends - for the first time without mum!!!! She's growing fast.

Today I've got the 18th birthday card I made for my niece Josie who lives in Germany. She wants to be an actress and is very arty.



The stamp is from Lavinia and the paper - omgosh - I can't remember - I was going to say basic gray but thats not right - sorry! The flowers were made using the tattered florals die and the card shape was cut using an arch shaped die in centura pearl card. I've distressed the edges with bundled sage on the papers and the image.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Sunday stamperpinkleart: Keys
MAWTTmovingalongwiththetimes: AG
Penny'spennyschallenges : AG
Inky Chicks:inkychicks 2 different die cuts - the card shape and the topper
Glitternsparkleglitternsparklechallengeblog: add metal

I've got yesterdays card to show you that I made from the tutorial on the sheena cd - me and my mum had such fun and I adore the card we made - here it is:




Its done exactly as detailed on the CD except I made the background as I haven't yet bought the papers. That was just done by stamping in versamark and embossing in clear powder the small fish image - then using faded jeans DI to rub all over the image which resists.

Hope you have a great Friday - I'm busy - when am I not - but tomorrow is a fun day with my mum again - we're off to Harrogate - can't wait!!!

Before I go - must just tell you about the new Harriet stamp from Crafty Sentiments called Witchy's ride. She's fab and is on special price until next Wednesday at Crafty Sentiments shop here.
