Some Bank Holiday makes

Well we certainly didn't get beach weather for our Bank Holiday today ... just varying degrees of rain, light rain, drizzle and mizzle!   Not to worry though, it was nice to be off and we enjoyed a wee visit to my Sis and a lovely lunch :)

This card uses some older MFT stamps - coloured with watercolour pencils, sparkle added to the leaves and clear gloss to his lolly, beak and feet.  I had a little snippet of matching DP in my pile so gave him some snazzy shorts.


Muse have a great challenge this week, to case any of Ardyth's cards!  A tough choice as she has a fabulous gallery, but I eventually chose this one - it reminded me of this Taylored Expressions tree die that I won a long time ago and have never used .... so thanks Ardyth!
I hadn't intended on the white enamel dots, but as per usual an oops magically appeared and needed disguising ;)

  3. Love your snippets card Lynne - those wee shorts paper pieced are such a great way of pulling the image and the BP together. Super card!

    And I love the second card as well - if you hadn't said that the white enamel dots were hiding an 'oops' we'd have been none the wiser! It looks just right :)

  9. Two great cards. I really like your penguin's "snazzy shorts." He looks like he's ready for an old-fashioned beach party. I think your white enamel dots add a nice touch to your second card, even if they do cover up an "oops."
