New Home cards

My cousin is moving house on Friday (I only found out on the weekend) so I've been busy making new home cards - one for mum and one for me.

I bought a new punch the other day so I had to use it. I'd bought some dolly pegs for Lucy as she'd had a pack for her birthday, but there were only 3 in the kit, and she's staying with me for a couple of nights. I shall have to keep an eye on the magpie as she loves to have a rummage and see what I've got!

Anyways, I bought some pegs, and while on ebay you have to have a look through the sellers other items don't you? Well, this one had some fiskars border punches, so I had to get one. Just to make the P&P worth it you know ;).

I've used bird and cage chipboard which I believe is by 2crafty, but you can get it at Bubblyfunk, the papers are BG and the letters are Maya Road rub-ons.

The one I'm sending uses a stamp from onefourzero that I have used loads as I love it. This time though, I have used ....... what for it ........ copics!!! Yep, I've finally coloured in something with them that I'm happy to put my name to!! I have to thank ~{Gez}~ who very patiently gave me some tips and links; I couldn't have done it without you x.

The paper is by Dream Street, but I can't remember where I got the text stamp from. To be honest, I'd forgotten I'd got it so it was a happy find this morning!!

Both cards are very beautiful Kaz and different. Love the stamp on the bottom card and your colouring in is super too.

Love them.

Hmmmmm? I wonder where Gez got her tips from?

My plans for Copics to dominate the world progress!
