Two cards

Hello there! How are you? I hope you are well and happy. We had a lovely day in the sunshine yesterday at Blackpool Zoo - we even went to the creepy crawlies talk and got to meet some scary creatures....


This was the giant land snail -

             
and then there was geoff the snake and a hissing cockroach!!! Great fun and we all enjoyed it!

Today is the first Monday of half term - we're off to do a workshop on rebellious Jacobites at the Museum today followed by crafting this afternoon. Looking forward to both of them!

I've got two cards to share with you today - the first is using a stamp from Penny Black and the second is the card I gave to Shaun on Friday.



A very simple card - I coloured the image with spectrum noirs and then cut using a spellbinders die - I threaded the flowers and curled the wires and cut the banner using a die from La la land crafts. The sentiment is from LOTV. 

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Penny Black Saturday Challengepennybfriendssaturdaychallenge: For Someone Special

The second card I want to share with you is the one I made for Shaun on Valentines day:



The image is from The Paper Shelter and I coloured it using promarkers. The papers are from the LOTV pad Always and Forever. The bow is from Creative Expressions.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Polkadoodlespolkadoodles: Love is in the air
PCJpaper-craftingjourney: Love is in the air
rhedd and rosieslove-is-in-air: love is in the air
TPSthepapershelter: Be my valentine
PTWpapertakeweekly: have a heart
Bunny Zoebunnyzoescrafts: Hearts/love

Thats all for today! Back tomorrow with more - hope to see you then and thanks for dropping by today!

Hugs

Rachel xx
