I hope that one day the English will cause it to be as big for the English as St Patrick's day is for the Irish - Being in Birmingham when the bombs destroyed the nightclubs (and lives of our young people, my friend's 17 year old daughter lost both her legs) I do not enjoy seeing the Irish Tricolour flying here.
But back to the cards,the reason for being here .....
1 to 1
little bear I knew he was mine!
I applied the ink and then cleaned it from the centre of his shield, stamped him out on several pieces of cardstock and coloured him in with pencils. I used an England peel off in the top right corner, stamped a spray of roses using a free stamp along the lower edge. I coloured the roses red (English symbol) and some of the leaves green. All the sentiments were printed on my PC and cutout to shape.
I received this beautiful card with a fantastic embossed background, the appropriate words were chalked in matching colours.
Thank you Carol J.
I stamped a scene from an old stamp from Sheena Douglass and coloured with pencils, spraying with clear water afterwards. I cut several England peeloffs into flag shapes and 'draped' them across the top of the card added a 'string' using a red pen. A printout sentiment from my PC completed the card.
Colour My World - Green card, yellow embellishments and one other colour.
I punched a border on yellow paper, several pieces of yellow paper and sorted out a focal picture.
I used one of the cards from my ATC kit then attached it to the yellow background which I then attached to the card. The sentiment was also from my ATC kit and I carefully rubbed it onto the yellow card and then discovered ..... I had used a different yellow card! I hope it isn't too obvious.
I received this cute chicken with an embossed background.
Thank you Carol J.
As there are just the two of us swapping this month I have tried to food 'out of the box' as it were. I googled and found an inspiration.
I punched several circles from a paper pad given free with a magazine. I followed the tutorial on the blog, adhering them onto a piece of pink card cut to size and added my own embellishments, several pearl flowers, a length of pink string tied into a double bow decorated with a pink pearl. I had an adhesive sentiment attached to pink card, then rounded the corners and attached it to the lower edge of the green card.
