Well, I made a couple of cards today, although my daughter was hanging off the side of me wanting to help - 'can I stick them down', 'can I put the glue on', 'do you need that piece of paper mum?'
The first card I made was super easy - only used 2x stamps, and it came together quite quickly (gotta love it when that happens!)

I used some lovely Heidi Grace paper I found at Spotlight (the colour hasn't come out that great - in real life it is a pastel teal colour, not blue & not green)
I also used a Heidi Grace lady bird (lady bug?) stamps and pop-dotted them up for a little oomph
 The cardstock used is some stampin up and bazzill, along with some stampin up gingham ribbon.

The text stamp is from an American company - TAC (The Angel Company) "A wittle bug is thinking of you"

The other card I made took a bit longer to make:

I used a House Mouse image, and coloured it in with my good ole coloured pencils, after stamping the image on some vanilla cardstock with brown ink.
I then matted both the image and the patterned paper (don't know the brand) on black cardstock and then onto a bazzil brown for the card base.

The inside is a sticker I found, which I thought was appropiate for the image!

This is the second card I have made - both very similar, but different colours. I know, if something works, use it again. In other words, I am creatively challenged!

Anyway, I hope you like the cards - let me know what you think!
