This is my sister's birthday card using a recent-ish purchase from Whipper Snapper. Coloured with polychromos. I got a bit carried away with adding all my extras, I could have done with a bigger size card though this is kinda the biggest I normally make!
Gummiapan squiggly edge die; Paper Smooches heart die.
- Layout from Try Stampin on Tuesday #416
- Crafty Cardmakers #237 - dies or punches
- Papercraft Challenge #41 - glitter / sparkle
And this one uses a real oldie from High Hopes, paired with a few fishies from an MFT set.
Coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss added to his eyes, feet and the rope round the posts. Water stencil is from Simon Says Stamp.

I won this Reverse Confetti ice lolly set ages ago and had no clue what to do with it, so this is it's first outing. I paperpieced the lolly, added another layer for the central bits and then added some clear gloss and lots of glitter. I didn't quite get the layering order right in my layout so added the little arrow as it just didn't look right.
This card will be to send a few €€ to my newphew and niece for their holidays so I'm sure they'll be more interested in what's inside ;)
- Layout from CAS(e) This Sketch #329
- Pinspirational #242 - pic of ice lollys
- Your Next Stamp Fun Friday #117 - 3 of something (3 x DPs)
And here's my Whipper Snapper birdies again, I think this is maybe one of my favourite stamps ever!
Coloured with polychromos to match this pretty DP and gloss/glitter added to their wings. I had a dirty finger incident in the top corner and needed a major cover up but didn't want to add any yellow so just cut my sun from white card; I like how it turned out :)

I coloured my little bunny from Purple Onion Designs with my polychromos and popped him up on foam pads. I scored a few lines in the background and added a few little silver stars.
- Papercraft Challenge #40 - stars
- Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - stars and/or stripes
- Tuesday Throwdown #435 - anything goes
- AAA cards #144 - maxi white space
And here's Mum's calendar page for the month, just a tad late!
I've used this old Wild Rose Studio stamp that I bought a long time ago and I don't believe I've ever inked it up!
I was happy with how the colouring on my skirt turned out with the folds, but I've no idea how I actually managed it, bit of a happy accident that!

Anyway I was lucky to win this Uniko flower set recently from the AAA Card Challenge blog, so I figured it was about time I got some ink on it. I should maybe spend my mojo-less time looking up pictures of flowers to see how I could colour these.
