Quick Cards

Thursday already, and another weekend looming! I have my daughter Jasmine off school today with a sore throat and soaring temperature. Rang the school this morning and was told there were several children flagging yesterday afternoon, and she suspected that there was some bug brewing! i thought that cold weather would have killed all those nasty bugs off, but obviously not.

You wont be surprised to hear that I havn't done my DT cards yet for Sunday, but i have made some quick cards to show you. I have to make a batch of valentine cards too, so thats my next project.

I thought this card might be appropriate for valentines, what do you think? I love this Melinda image, how adorable is she??

This is another one of my favourite images, but this time its Sarah Kay. It reminds me of my childhood, all these country looking characters!

Have been desperately needing some boys cards so thought i would concentrate on that. These are what i've come up with. Edwin looks very trendy here with his spikey hair, not unfamiliar to my youngest son Ben!

Love these High Hope Dragons and i have actually got round to using my stampin up scalloped punch!

Then lastly another cute little Edwin fishing! isn't he so adorable? doesn't look like he's having much luck though maybe he needs to change his bait.

Now ive recently taken to using downloads. Not only are they extremely well priced, but you don't have to have space to store them!!! with my recent move it seems the ideal solution I love this gorgeous hippos from the Pink Petticoat site.

You can't really see it very clearly but the heart has been glazed. Again my camera is useless!

and finally one of my favourite images! much more grown up and i want a suit like that!

So thats it from me again. Enjoy your evening ladies and hope you are finding plenty of time to craft. Hugs Linda x
