Double take?

Brrrrrr ... we've had every weather going today, rain, sun, drizzle, thunder, sleet, snow and a wind that would cut the face off you!  Did I think Spring was on it's way a few weeks ago? LOL

My cards this evening are a bit of a take 2 of yesterdays!  A friend in work saw my giraffe baby card and wanted one for her daughter who loves giraffes, and then I had to make another thank you card for a wee gardening group.

Card 1 - Giraffe stamp from Whipper Snapper - coloured with watercolour pencils.  Background giraffe print stencil coloured with pink chalks.  Sentiment/alpha set from Paper Smooches.  Taylored Expressions sequins.

Card 2 uses my Penny Black stamp again - coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss/glitter added to the snail's shell.

I can see the stencilling more clearly on this card, what a great idea to use it behind the image. Cara x

Both cards are adorable. That sweet giraffe looks good in pink, too! Your weather sounds like ours - we've had rain, snow, cold wind, warm sunshine, etc. Sure wish Spring would come to stay instead of slipping in and out.
