RSS Challenge week 13

I've finally managed to finish my fan for the Ready-Steady-STAMP! challenge! I was trying to decide how and where to include the 'hearts' ingredient when I remembered that I had this lace with pink hearts on - so I was able to use one material for two ingredients!! LOL
Just realised I should perhaps have mentioned the stamps used here - various images including Art Journey, Crafty Individuals and Paper Artsy.

Mabel Lucie Attwell cards

Some cards using the adorable Mabel Lucie Attwell stamps by The Artistic Stamper. The 'Rainy Day' card I made for my friend Anne, whose birthday is next month. The 'Nature's Little Helper' card was made by request from a work colleague for her daughter Meghna. I have made several cards for Meghna and her sister Shivani (aren't they gorgeous names?) and they are both easy to cater for! Meghna's favourite colour is lilac and Shivani loves pink, and they both like really pretty girly things such as flowers, butterflies, ribbon and lace! The other card I made just for my own fun.

A for....

... Alligator! A new year and a new challenge from the Inchybyinch blog - the alphabet. So here is my effort for week one. The 'alligator' is a stamp by Stampin' Up (I think it is probably a crocodile really).

Another card

I've just bought these oval Nestabilities so, of course, I had to use them at the weekend! The main image is one of my old favourite stamps by Katys Corner and the text stamp is by Tim Holtz. You probably recognise the butterfly... by ISC.

Kard for Kids

Sorry, I couldn't resist the alliteration! The latest theme on the Alphabet Challenge Blog is K for Kids, hence this card. The stamp is by Make Your Mark and I have stamped it three times and decoupaged parts of the image.

Thank You Card

I've made this card for the Anything Goes challenge on Craftswap Forum - this month's theme is 'Thank You'. The stamps are by Paperbag Studios, and the background of the main image was a bit of a mixed bag: brayered over white card stock with rainbow ink pad, spritzed with water to mix the colours slightly, then I decided to add some glimmer mist sprays too! But I was happy with the final result.
