February tomorrow !!!!!

Hi there, can't believe that January is almost over, where has the time gone? They say time flys when you are enjoying yourself don't they

Thought I would post some cards that I've managed to get done this week between samples for Crafters Companion.

This one was quite a simple card to make once I had created the backing papers using pearl paints and brilliance inkpads. The gorgeous patterned luxury paper is by CC as is the flower stamp. The ribbon is from stash. Photo does not do this card justice.

I've used the Cute Companion stamps from Crafters Companion for this 40th birthday card for my niece. The numbers are stamped onto more card that I created with the pearl paints. I added a bit of sparkle with Sakura stardust pens. I stamped and coloured the mice on white card and stamped out the clothes on paper from the Cute Companions CD. The base card is pearlescent from CC with mirri board layered in the centre. The card shape is one I designed myself and has an art deco look about it. This card shape is particularly good for showing off decoupage designs.

I love the Sarah Kay stamps as I've said before, and in particular this design. I stamped the image using Versafine which doesn't run when watercolouring and used some pearl paints which are similar to H2O's but much cheaper from The Works. I've layered the image onto green pearl card which was then layered onto some basic grey brown paper. The backing paper is by Papermania, the ribbon from stash, the highlights on flowers are peeloffs as is the greeting which has been coloured using peel-off pens. The flowers I bought from Joanna Sheen's shop

Well don't forget to say Rabbits in the morning

Back soon
