LOVE that Audrey Hepburn-esque stamp on the first card, and who can do anything but smile at the Les Jungles image (fab background too).

Loving the all red Friends card too. Very CAS and cool.

Happy Monday.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

That 50s lady is really lovely and you have coloured her beautifully Kathy and your LIM card in that pretty red simple but elegant with the leaves and the great sentiment. The ATC makes me smile with the fun Katzelcraft image and the background works well and love the sparkle. x

Cara said...

Love how smooth your blending of the pencils is on your first card, I definitely need to take lessons from you! Your ATC made me smile, and great card for the LIM/AA challenge x

Great to see you joining in again Kathy with the collaboration challenge at Less is More and AAA Cards this week. There are so many beautiful card base colours in this challenge and this red is definitely up there with the best! Love it. CAS brilliance as ever and a great design. Thanks for playing along.

Super makes, Kathy. I especially love the first one, so classy and stylish. I somehow missed your last post with more lovely creations. Most impressed with how restrained you were at Newbury, but looking forward to seeing how you use the goodies you did buy. xx
