Furry Friends!


  I made these cards a couple of weeks ago using a stamp and embossing folder which were freebies with a magazine.  I water coloured the images and coloured the insides of the embossed daisies with a yellow Sakura gel pen.  The yellow and orange card and pieces of lace and ribbon are all snippets and the flowers are some that happened to match from my bits jar.

I am taking my cards over to Di's Snippets Playground Week 229.   I hope it won't matter that it's two cards but I photographed them together and as they've already been posted I couldn't take another.      I would also like to enter my card into the Alphabet Challenge F for Furry Friends.

  23. Cute plus dear Barb, well done on the two for one, I say! and it really is a great folder with nice deep embossing, well done never bought one with folder or actually bought a magasine, full stop. I am such a bad reader doer when comes to few mags Iv been given I find it hard to justify getting them. Think it is just me.
    .. one day I might if ever see one that I really like.
    Thanks so much for the inspiration.
