Back to School

Hello Guys

Our Kiddies went back to school last Wednesday ( Hooray!) 
and the oldest of my friends children started High School. 
So I made a card to wish him well.

It's not a great pic.
I used the school tie colours and the letters are computer generated using Paper-Mache font.
I cut them out and inked them.

My Girl's Birthday Card

Evening All.

If you pop by regularly you'll know that it was my little girls birthday earlier this month.
Unfortunately it came at the end of The Vomiting Week so she didn't get a personalised card but one which I'd started for a Shabby Chic challenge but decided was going to be Vintage rather than Shabby so left off. It got stuck together the eve of her birthday. 

The image is Saturated Canary - Violet Vintage.
Coloured with Promarkers 

The paper is My Minds Eye - Blush
Ribbon and lace from The Ribbon Girl
Sentiment is computer generated.
Pearls from stash

I'd like to enter her at 

Saturated Canary Challenge - Set your creativity free
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

before you go here is a pic of one of her pressies.
Zoom the gecko

She's completely different from poor deceased Mookie.
She jumps about all over the place, hence the name.
