Always and forever

Another busy cardmaking day yesterday with 9.5 cards made. I couldn't possible make that many if they were all stamped, which is my favourite type of card to make. I made some with lovely papers and large flowers, simple but effective and some with my lovely Humphrey Everday decoupage kit I bought. These are such lovely images and ideal for making cards for sale. Decoupaged cards are very popular with the buyers I've found. I have been making at least one stamped card a day too but these are mainly my DT cards so cannot share those with you yet.

This image of Humphrey's Mum and Dad dancing on their anniversary is so sweet. The papers I used are also from the kit which is available at Crafter's Companion. The stamped sentiment is LOTV and the flowers are from Michaels with MS punched fern leaves.

Challenges:
Cute Card Thursday Great sketch
Little Claire Wedding/anniversary (sorry didn't have any suitable Little Claire images)
Forever Friends 3D (use any animal image)
Crafty Creations Show us your inner animal

Right, housework and shopping to do and then getting ready for tomorrow's craft fair. I have all the cards I made this week to label, attach inserts and bag up.
