Manchester and more

When in Manchester for our crafting weekend, seems ages ago now, I made this trinket box using Stampbord and a super lion's head stamp which is apparently out of production. Shame because I would have liked one.



I really liked the effect so used a similar idea to make my teenage grandson a birthday card but with a tiger's head stamp - so difficult to find something they will like.



This card is for a member of my team, a farmer's wife who is 60 this week. Used a watercolour image that was shared on the 'Imag-e-nation' forum, painted by Hilary's mum.



When you undo the ribbon and look underneath you can see how old she is!!

I love that shade of green card Jean, I think it is so classy, I have a good few sheets of the same shade & I tend to use it sparingly, love the hidden 60.
The stampbord card is great, pefect colouring.

Love the cards Jean, love the idea of the 60 being hidden just in case she doesn't want anyone to know her age.

Both lovely cards Jean, but the tractor card is my favourite. Gorgeous colour green and a very clever way of hiding the age!
