More cards

Hi you all! I can hardly believe it, we've had sunshine 3 days in a row - a wonder! But the weather men have warned us that storms are on their way, and it is very humid. But after so much rain and grey skies it is just lovely to feel the sun! I visited my friend yesterday, and we spend the day as usual, playing card, drinking coffee, eating, drinking coffee and nattering. And in the evening I made 2 more quick cards, done with my free downloads from Crafts you print. The only part that is fiddly is cutting out the small pieces.

 I have added a bit to the first one - some liquid pearls for the spots on the toadstools and the little girl's hair-band, and some litter flocking powder on the bunny and the little lady's skirt. I've had the flocking powder in my drawer for years, so it was good to at last be able to use it for something!




For the second card, I just added a hat pin, some ribbon to the handbag, and used some clear varnish on some of the objects to give them more shine.



Tomorrow I shall be back with the latest episode of Cissie's travels, and  - I hope - something for Paint Party Friday. Have a good day, take care, and thanks for coming by!
