Get Well Soon card (CC Designs image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

CC Designs have some of my favourite images, they were one of the first digi/stamp companies I started using, I loved that their hair was in sections, it made it easier to figure out how to shade hair. I love this little fairy nurse, I did actually colour this image a while ago and only now got around to creating a card for it. I love using black, red and white, it's a really striking colour combination isn't it? I used a tiny flower punch to make the flowers and just added a red pearl to their centres. The hearts are from the Lala Land heart banner die.

Super Dad Father's Day card (Kenny K sentiment)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I made this card for my hubby for Father's Day from our kids, yes they should have made one themselves but I guess because it's my hobby they always leave it to me! I used a gorgeous sentiment stamp from Kenny K but I think they may have closed down now sadly. I used black cardstock and die cut some stars out of it and then glued in yellow and red stars so some are flat on the card and some are stuck on top of the black cardstock (if that makes sense hehe??) I coloured in the image and I printed it out in blue.



I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafter's Cafe - boys will be boys
Fairytale Challenges - men only
Glitter & Sparkle - anything goes  
Incy Wincy Designs - photo inspiration - inspired by the yellow and red
