AWOL again

I don't know what's wrong with me at the moment, I just can't seem to get my act into gear. I've gone another week without posting anything on here, so today I'm going to post two cards. The first is for the Stamping Sensations challenge this month which is Close To Nature. This was a perfect excuse for me to get the Stampscape stamps out and inked up. Below is the result, I coloured the scene with pencils and added a little clear sparkle over the water (it doesn't show in the photo I'm afraid). I've not added a sentiment yet as I'm not sure who is going to receive it.



Next up is my card for the Allsorts challenge which is Fancy Folds this week. It's not a very fancy fold as I just folded back the front of the card. I had a lot of off cuts left over from a Graphic 45 project I made earlier this year which were calling out to be used. So after rummaging through the off cuts this is what I came up with. As it was using off cuts it also qualifies for Pixies Snippets Playground challenge, which is to use snippets/off cuts somewhere on your card. I added some clear sparkle pen to the fairy wings, a little glitter on the borders and a few gems on the front as well.


Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
I promise to try harder and blog more often too.

Hi Sue

Two beautiful cards. Loving the beautiful scene you created for the first one and the second has used up lots of your beautiful snippets.

Beautiful scene on your first card, Sue. It is so lovely and peaceful looking. Those are amazing stamps!

The second card is so lovely using that bits and bobs of Graphic 45. Now this card is why we should save our snippets!
