I've two real oldies this evening - the date on this Whipper Snapper kitty stamp was 2008 so it's lasting well! Coloured with polychromos and popped up on foam pads. Clear gloss added to his nose and thermometer.
And this stamp from Anita's is even older with a date stamp on it of 2002! I think it was maybe one of the first Christmas stamps I ever bought and I still ink it up now and then. He comes with a load of stars round him but I masked them off and then inked up my sky. I hadn't intended to add so many stars but I made a bit of a hash inking the sky and needed to take the focus off it!

This first card uses some real old oldies - I'm not even entirely sure how ancient my Whipper Snapper bunny is! I've also used a partial sentiment from an old Paper Smooches set and for some reason my MFT heart die rarely gets an outing!
Coloured with polychromos, sparkle added to the big heart and clear gloss to his nose.

This card got a wee bit confused in the making! It started off as a penguin based one for the Christmas Kickstart challenge, and this little penguin was the one I chose. So then I thought my boozing buddy would be perfect for the 'cheers' challenge over at MFT Birthday and I thought I could make it that it could also double as a winter birthday card. But now I'm not sure it actually looks like either a Christmas card or a birthday card!! Maybe it's more of a Thank You for after Christmas?

I had a little slice of this swirly DP in my pile that I knew would come in handy and it was just big enough to slide behind my hearts die :)
Zebra popped up on foam pads, sparkle added to the edge of the umbrella and shine added to his hooves. Little blue stars from stash.
I couldn't get a decent pic of this one, you'll have to trust me that it looks much better in real life LOL
I've discovered that I can colour in and watch TV at the same time, mostly thanks to my fab new sharpener that catches all the shavings, so I'm not up and down every 2 minutes to sharpen my pencils!

I coloured up a couple of these MFT flowers the other night while there was rubbish on the TV ... namely Dr Who! That would have been an hour lost from my life, so I was glad I actually had something to show for my time ;)
I've gone back to my beloved polychromos for these - I think of the pair I prefer the pink one

Here's the remake of the birthday card I made recently with my new Clearly Besotted stamp and used watercolours this time. Not a medium I'm overly happy with, give me watercolour pencils any day. Though it's all part of my 'be more adventurous' crafty resolution and to try new or different techniques.

I should know by now not to leave cards to the last minute. My mojo tends to go AWOL and I'd no clue what to make for my brother-in-law. I'd seen one like this on Pinterest a while ago using a big balloon die and thought I'd have a go at making my own, though I'm not sure if it actually looks like a balloon or not ... at least Greg didn't manage to guess what it was! Maybe I should have had more of a curve on the edge? Ah well, time's up, it will have to do.
