Set of Thank You Cards

Here are a few of the thank you cards I made for when my son, Max, left his temporary school last week. The layout is quite simple but it lets the backing papers and the sentiment do the showing off.

Promarkers: Cocoa, Buttercup, Rose Pink, Denim Blue, Lime Green, Canary, Pastel Blue, Duck Egg, Indigo Blue, Amethyst, Hot Pink and Pumpkin.

A Card for Cliff

I have been a bit naff at blogging lately. Loads of stuff to sort out to get our son in a specialist school had meant crafting has taken a bit of a back seat, but nothing like a last minute birthday card to solve that. I made this for our friend Cliff. Blokie cards are always difficult, so with remembrance day as my inspiration I made this little number.

Stamps: Sentiment stamp from 3 Birds Clearly Hand Stamped kit.
BG Papers: Plain card/paper stock from my stash.
Dies: Nestabilities Labels 1.
