Sweet Summer Wishes

Afternoon peeps

I have been out car hunting this morning and it's not been as easy as I had hoped.  Must of the car dealerships around the area are way out of my budget and I'm not keen on buying privately.  I went into one dealership and as soon as I walked through the gates I was jump on by a dirty looking salesman who then continued to follow me around, I won't be going back there again.  I have a couple of weeks before I need one, so hopefully something will turn up.


Anyway, I have made a sweet feminine card this afternoon.  The digital stamp is called Sakura Cherry Blossom from Star Stampz and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
Digital patterned paper

Cupcakes

Evening peeps

I got a little bit soppy last night, my son is home from uni for the weekend and decided to meeting up with his mates, these guys have grown up together right from primary school.  I got all soppy because I haven't seen them together since my son went to uni 2 years ago and watching them, I suddenly realised what fantastic young men they had grown into.  I think that was a proud mum moment.


Anyway, the card I have made tonight has a cupcake theme to it.  The digital stamp is called Cupcake Kitten from Aurora Wings and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
