Transport


Thanks to all those who have left me comments whilst we have been away. We stayed in Peterborough on Thursday night and then in Harrogate for the last two nights. I had a wonderful time at LOTV's Birthday party yesterday and met so many blogging buddies. I bought 5 of the new fairies, some older stamps, a paper pad, a die and a couple of art pads

I have two cards to share today, both made using some postcards I bought at Ally Pally from Kraftyhands. Hubby declared these cards a hit so hopefully they will sell well. For the first card I used Papermania Al aboard papers. The map was made using DIs, Frayed Burlap, Broken China and Evergreen Bough and then overstamped with a Papermania stamp. I can take no credit for this idea which came from a blogging friend Lorraine (Rainey). I told her I loved it and would try it.


The second card uses papers from Bo Bunny Weekend Market, wooden arrow from a new set I bought from Little Claire, wooden chevrons from Studio Calico and baker's twine.

What a great idea to use postcards for the focal piece on your cards, these two are fabulous male cards. I'm glad you liked the map idea and it turned out great on this card too. I guess we'll be seeing lots of LOTV fairy cards from you in the near future as you get to use lots of your new stamps. I bet it was amazing in the LOTV shop, I've only seen pictures myself but it looks like an Aladdin's Cave of goodies.
