Just Two Cards Today ;0)

Hi Everyone!!

Just the 2 cards to share today he he!! I made these before I went to work yesterday but I did make some more when I got home!!

My first card is for 2 challenges... the sketch is from Friday Sketchers and the theme is from Simon Says Stamp where they would like to see a card for a child...

I have used one of my cute little Stampavie stamps from Rachelle Anne Miller and this time I have coloured it with Lyra Aquacolours and then highlighted with some normal pencils for a change from ProMarkers! The bits of paper were again from my scrap folder (it was a scrap bag but I'm now organised he he!!) I punched down both sides of the card with my Fiskars Threading Water Punch (I did worry I was going to break it at one point though lol!!)

And my 2nd card is again for 2 challenges... the theme at Just Magnolia is 'Punch it Out' and the theme at Totally Papercrafts is 'Distressing'. So here is my card...


I have coloured Tilda again in the same way as the first card and I have used my Threading Water Fiskars punch again down the side. The distressing was done using some of the core-dinations cardstock, ran through an embossing folder and then sanded down, I have also ran some ink around all the edges too...

I hope you're all enjoying the warm weather... it's so nice to have such bright mornings and light nights isn't it!!

Love Becky xx
