Random Card's

I have been out of action the last few weeks due to the computer not letting me upload photo's. But I have worked out that I can do it on someone else's account. Don't ask me how but at least I'm back on.

So here is some things that I have been doing lately. A special card for my brother in law Peter. He is a bit of a handly man, so this card was perfect for him.

I stamped the image onto silver c.s and then I used the faux woodgrain technique for the handles of the hammer and saw. I quite like this idea. I got the instructions for this from Marelle's blog. Also there is alway's great inspiration on SCS

This second card was done with the new Pony Party set. I got this set as a clear mount as I thought it would be easier to stamp the little stamps on. Great idea, but I'm constantly worried I'm going to lose one of the little stamps.

Anyway I have been clever enough to use some of the retiring paper Apricot Apeal with one of the new colours Tangerine Tango. The flower brad is Pumpkin Pie, but you can't really tell the difference. I glittered the wings and put crystel effects on the ponies mane and tail. I must say I love the Magical birthday wishes sentiment. This will be used quite a lot with my girly cards I think.

I have really enjoyed putting up this post. I don't think I realised how much I missed blog land til I was back.

Take care and blog you later

Both cards are fabulous Phil, but I love that male one as male cards are so hard to make and you have done a fabulous job,

I love them both! That's a great masculine card and I'll have to check out that faux wood technique! Love the colours you have used on the pony and the crystal effects looks fantastic. Wonderful job Phil :o)
