Finally...a couple of new cards!

Ok, I admit it, I've been a bad blogger recently. I just haven't had much time to craft, and then of course I messed up my blog etc (won't bore you with all the details). I've missed visiting all your blogs so seeing as the weather has been rubbish today, I finally had time to get in a bit of crafting! It seems like ages since I did a card! So now I have something to put on my blog! It took me ages to find some inspiration for my cards, I must be out of practice. The first one is for the New Magnolia Vs Stampavie Blog, it's a sketch which is cool! I've used one of my new Tildas, Nostalgia Warm paper pack from Papermania...



I coloured the image using Distress Inks, but I put some sparkly paint on it too. You can just about make it out on the detail pic...



The second card is for Friday Sketchers blog, sketch #26 by Jacqueline. The image is a RAK, it's from Sugar Nellie. Rest is from stash. I don't do very many bright cards, I'm not sure about this one, maybe just a bit too much colour for me...


Thanks for being patient, I know my blog hasn't been very interesting lately!
