foral for a change

Hi everyone, needed to make some birthday cards for stock, so tried this stamp from Magenta, I love it!!! (it's Kim Fees' fault I bought it) ha ha ha, so easy to work with, for the main image on the first one I masked a bit of it off, on the other card I have used a Penny Black stamp too on shrink plastic. Hope you all have a fab weekend.....

Gift Bags

Hi everyone, Hope you're all having a good week..... I'm NOT!!!!!!!!! anyway, enough of that........
I got these blank paper gift bags from Crafts U Love, a real bargain, £1.00 for 10 I think it was!! anyway the first one, I stamped with my Stampin' Up! roller thingy, Jolly Holly, in Green Ivy Pearlescent ink, then edged with Dovecraft sticky ribbons, added red Stickles to the berries. the topper is just a Hero Arts stamp backed onto a few layers and added some ribbon from stash. The second is pretty self explanatory I think..... I hope you like..
