Hello Fruit

I really liked making this card, it is the first card I have made using my brand spanking new Cuttlebug. I am really please with the end result.

Stamps: Cheeries from MelJens Designs, sentiment from 3 Birds Clearly Hand Stamped kit.
BG Papers: Plain red and green card from my stash.
Embossing Folder: Swiss dots from Cuttlebug.
Promarkers: Lime Green, Forest Green, Hot Pink, Ruby, Pastel Blue and Ice Grey 1.

Thanks #4

This card is made from one of the 'Thanks' sentiments I drew in the stylee of the A7 Papermania stamps that I have. I have had the background paper for quite a while but I wasn't quite sure what to do with it as it is quite bold but I really like the zesty colour combo.

Stamps: Digi stamp I drew on the computer and printed out at home.
BG Papers: Patterned paper freebie download from a mag, plain card from my stash.
Promarkers: Lime Green, Pumpkin, Hot Pink.

To You Both

I like the colour combo on this card, the stamp is quite versatile so it can cover several occasions.

Stamps: A7 sentiment stamp from Papermania.
BG Papers: Patterned paper from Daisy and Dandelion CD, yellow plain pearlescent card from Rymans.
Promarkers: Rose Pink, Cinnamon, Denim Blue and Buttercup.
