A Tuesday post? Bit of a surprise to see but .....

Hi there,

Had an unusually creative couple of days so it was either parade half a dozen cards AND some pix in front of you or post on a day (or two) that I wouldn't normally ...

Decided it's been a while since I used a sketch AND I had new stash from Stamplorations (thanks Shery) so ....


My card
 
The front back and inside of the card and the front and back of the envelope

Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card blank and matching sized envelope
  • Two white card panels cut to 3¾ x 5"
  • Two black card panels cut to 4 x 5¼"
  • Stamps used: Cats Pyjamas (sentiment), Dylusions (large circle border) and Stamplorations (the rest)
  • Inks used: Memento: tuxedo black, lilac posies, sweet plum, Brilliance pearlescent purple and Delicata silver


I'll be entering this for the following challenges:-
  1. Stamplorations - MAY challenge - ANYTHING GOES/SKETCH
  2. Stamping Sensations - MAY challenge - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Stamplorations - never ending challenge - ANYTHING STAMPLORATIONS GOES
  4. CAS-ual Fridays - challenge No. 147 - BIRTHDAY GIRL
  5. The Cats Pyjamas - challenge No. 314 - Sentiment centric

 

It's the birthday of a couple of friends today so .. Happy Birthday to both Len and Mat


And some more pix from Sunday's walk ... yes that IS a gator you can see, sunning itself on the grass!





OMG! How the other half live eh?!?!?! That's a WATER SLIDE they're having installed!
