Circles ........

I'm taking part in an ATC book swap with Cherry Pie Art Stamps - there are 13 of us taking part, we're making one ATC per participant and sending to Marina who will somehow, magically, bind them into a book; a keepsake forever :)

The theme for this swap is 'words'; we chose one word and mine was 'circle'.

A couple of birthday cards .....

February heralds the start of the birthday season in the Wareham household, some I'll make cards for, others I'll buy.  Today I made a card for my sister in law Julie using stamps from Cherry Pie's Alice sheet on an alcohol ink background

(the inside says .... a very happy birthday)

and I also made a card for my mum's close friend John using a photo I took during our trip to Kenya last year. This little guy was living with his family in the Masai Mara.

For something totally different .....

....... I made a card for my friend Sandy's birthday using a Hearts in Touch fairy stamp. Painted with Ecoline watercolours and shimmer added to the wings with Perfect Pearls. I've just invested in the gold Ecoline - it's soooooo good :) I used it for the frame and to highlight the flowers and butterfly. The background is done using alcohol inks.

More Cards for Haiti

I finished off these cards at the weekend.
