Here is another stamp that I bought from the garage sale. Isn't it gorgeous. For this image I've used it for an anniversary card but I also made in to a 'friend to friend' card and I will also us it for wedding cards too. As usual, the colouring has been done by the whisper pens, and for the centre of the flower I've used glossy accents. Hope you like it.

I was inspired to make this card from looking at Vicky's blog. As it happens the stamp was given to me by Janette at Saturday's garage sale for free. Like Vicki I cut the tree and branches randomly and hoped for the best!(I thought about drawing it out only afterwards) I used some leaf eyelets which I slightly squashed as I wanted them raised and not punched through the card. The grass buttons I've had for ages so at last I've found a use for them! He's a real cute owl and there is some funny text that comes with him but I'll include that on another card one day.......
Hope you like it. Jeanette

All 3 'Krafty Kows' went to Janettes garage sale again last Saturday and spent far too much...well at least I did and the only reason I didn't buy more was because I hadn't taken enough money with me. I'm looking forward to the next one were I will of course increase my budget. So what did I buy you may ask. Well I bought some wonderful 'Penny Black' and 'Stampingbella's stamps which I couldn't leave behind as they are my absolute favourites. I'm going to be stamping them up later this week and showing them on the blog. I managed to make a 'Father's Day' card from one of the stamps I bought, which I have been after for ages. It's by Penny Black and he's called 'Dressed Up'. I've decoupaged his head and foot and used glossy accents to hi-light his nose, tie and little paw pads. I've coloured with the whisper pens. Hope you like him

I had a 'pink' evening yesterday and for no particular reason made a couple of baby girl cards.
The first card is a sizzix die with various embellishments added and the second card is a 'Bosskut Die' which I had bought from Somerset Stitch & Craft show and I'm so please with it.
Hope you like them

Another quick card tonight. This is a 'Paper Nations' stamp. I've used glossy accents to hi-light the football. Cut the no.8 from the cuttlebug. Stamp three footballs. The background paper is from a disc with billions of backgrounds on, which I end up spending half the night going through! Hope you like it.
This is a download image is from 'Pink Petticoat' which I've carefully coloured with whisper pens using my water pen, as the ink can smudge and bleed. I've used little orange gems in the middle of the flowers and drawn fake stitching around the the border with fine permanent black pen. Hope you like it.

Here are a couple of baby books, which are by far the most popular, followed closely by 'weddings'. These are great as brag books for grandparents/parents and can be sent to relatives who may live far away. They are also great for 'christening mementos' as well for the godparents. Hope you like them.

It's the BIG 30 today for Michelle. We had a family BBQ yesterday, and thankfully the weather was good and everybody had a nice time. The children certainly had fun playing in the garden.
This is the cake and card I made for Michelle. The stamp is by 'Whipper Snapper', just perfect for the 'Krafty Kow' birthday girl. I hope you like them.
