Lovely Day

Well actually, it's not. Rain and wind so a good excuse to take a day for myself and make some cards. Not before time I might add.
First is for a colleague, our super ICT technician, who has been studying part time while working full time, has just got a 1st class honours degree in Computer just had to do a card for him. Stamp is decoupaged in three layers then added the mortar board. Number is chipboard coloured with two blues and then highlighted with gold - as are the letters on the inside and the layering card.

The next is for another colleague who is adopting a baby girl. They are going to see her for the first time in a few days, then five days 'getting to know her' and they will be bringing her home. As I have just bought the Papertrey 'Bitty Baby Blessings' I was delighted to be able to make her an appropriate card.

.....and finally, one for my elder daughter's birthday next week. Decided to use the Maya Road paper that has been in my ' look and stroke' drawer for a few months. Had difficulty in deciding how much bling to use as I bought a kit which has lots of that in. Kept it pretty toned down though - I think!!

Excellent cards Jean and the blog is brilliant as well. Shame you're not having the weather today that we're having, but then again, if you were, you wouldn't have made these cards - lol. We've had wall to wall blue skies and sunshine and it's been very warm - in fact, if my balloon flight was tonight it would be flying - lol!

Love the cards Jean. The paper for your daughter's card is wonder you kept it for a while before you used it.
We were at Aberdeen and the sun was there too....pity it didn't follow us home it was bucketing down when we came home.
