Finally some cards.......



These last few weeks have all gone by in a bit of a blur really and I have not felt like doing anything - I am still feeling low and the weepy side is overtaking the creative side - BUT- made myself sit for a couple of occasions and colour in some digi stamps. Once coloured in, I then had another session making them up into cards for my Pink Day. (I am proud to say I have just sent off a cheque for £350 in donations in lieu of flowers for Mum - I know this would have pleased her greatly and I have been overwhelmed by everyone's generosity.)

Back to the cards ....... the beer barrel teddy was done for my friend's OH who likes the odd glass (or three) of Boddington's Beer! The other one has gone into the Pink box. Both images are freebies and I coloured them with a mix of distress inks and promarkers. Backing papers for beer barrel are by Papermania (Hampstead Collection) and the backing papers for the Wine card were a pressie from Maureen, and as she didn't tell me whose they were I can't tell you!
Crafts and Me and Paper Sundaes both have challenge themes this week of Birthdays so have submitted these.
