What a weekend. I finally managed to get some time to post my cards. I have made these cards to celebrate the first anniversary of the Cute-card-thursday. They have a lovely sketch to follow created by Katharina.
Over on a-spoonful-of-sugar they would like to see gems on your card. I am probably guilty of that on most of my cards I think lol. So I am joining them with this first card as the second has faux pearls.
On this first card I have gone for a pink and black theme which is just so now, at the moment. Simple layering of papers which I got from the SECC. The Gorjuss girl is coloured with the inkadinks from imagination-crafts. These stamps are so nice to work with, they always look great can't wait for the second set.
For this second card I have used a couple of magnolia stamps. As soon as I had seen these stamps I wanted them. They can cover so many special occassions in life. I have used them for an anniversary card. Maybe a pearl anniversary with all the faux pearls on.
I have created the tag by using a plan brown tag and a couple of the smaller rollagraphs and mica powders from imagination-crafts. I can't get enough of these and wish I could afford them all as they have some stunning designs. I used a different roller to give the detail to the circle alsoThis time the couple are coloured with my copic pens. The papers are from K&co . I just love the earthy tones, another hit with the DH.

  • Thank you for stopping by.
  • I love reading the lovely comments that you leave and visiting your blogs.
  • I have been struggling lately with my internet as it takes forever for the pages to come up. Rather than blog hopping its more like blog crawling with a hangover on the Monday after a big weekend, lol.

Love both of your cards but that little Gorjuss girl is just right for sitting in the corner like that. Can't wait for them to be sold individually and then I'm going to treat myself.
