Monday and another week begins!

Hi and Happy Monday to you all,
 
It's dawned dull and grey here again today and the forecast is for more rain as the day goes on but hey ...... nothing new there and the garden COULD use the rain!
 
I bought some new pens over the last few days, Spectrum Noirs, and I haven't been able to stop "colouring in" with them - my first card to share is proof that I am in my YELLOW phase!! .....
 
 
 
Materials used:
  • 300 gsm white, scallop edged C6 card and matching sized envelope
  • Pre cut scallop edged panel in kraft card
  • Pre cut gold pearlised oval
  • Penny Black cling image stamped using Memento sweet plum
  • Alcohol markers to colour
 
And now on to the  next ....... yellow again!
 
 
 
Materials used:
  • 15cm square, 300 gsm scallop edged white card and matching sized envelope
  • Black, Kraft and Stray offcut from a piece of patterned 12" x 12" of indeterminate origin
  • Bakers twine
  • Corner rounder punch and a Martha Stewart edging punch on the Kraft panel
  • La La land image stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink on to white card
  • Alcohol markers to colour
 
Not often I stack up the cards I make, especially not over so short a time but, here's the photo!!! Busy or what?!?!?!?
 
 
 
Hope you like today's makes - I'm off to phone a friend - have a great Monday

Wowsers Kathy -check you out! Talk about "stock"! That should keep you going for a while.
I love your yellow, such a happy colour. The sun is trying to come out but it's cooled off again. Fingers crossed (I think) you get your rain.
Have a lovely day.

Wow Kathy, your stash of cards look really impressive! Like the second card, first time I've seen that one. You get the shading really nicely, the pens are obviously working well for you.
