Quick Cards...

YIKES, yesterday morning I suddenly remembered it was my cousin's little girls first birthday today, as well as Father's Day...

So I quickly stamped out a few images, then during the day managed to colour then in using colouring pencils... and after Steven went to bed, made them into cards...

They were both made using clear stamps from a Kanban 'Simba & Bamboo' kit...

Charli's was finished off with the Fiskars punch 'Lace' in the corners, and 'Rose Petals' Queue chalk ink round the edge of the white card, which was put onto the pink gloss card using 3d foam pads, the name was done using peel offs from my stash...



and with the Father's Day card I used the woodware punch for the corners and 'creamy brown' Queue chalk ink round the edges, which again was put on top of the backing paper from my stash using 3d foam pads and a father's day peel off...



I hope you're all having a lovely Father's Day today and to those that may not have their dad's still around, hope you're remembering the good times you had with them, like I am...

Have a good weekend...

Lovely cards Maria. I really like the punched corners - that is the sort of thing I always forget to do.
Hope Father's Day hasn't been too sad for you. Graham always says he doesn't need a 'special' day to miss his dad because he misses him all the time (but obviously today and his birthday etc are a bit harder than normal days).

Thanks carole, val and susan...xx

and susan totally agree with graham, I think of dad daily, especially when steven chases men in light blue jackets, lol...

no seriously, they're is always something that reminds me of him, we still talk about him, as he was a big part of our lives and always will be...
