Some cards for DCM & Inkstains...and pressies!

We've just had one of my dear uni friends, her husband and children stay the night.

They have two girls who get on very well with my two boys. There was lots of kissing, giggling and screaming going on, and I think we also had announcements of marriage!

Got this lovely cookery book from them... it's one I've had my eye on too! Can't wait to try some recipes from it.

Recieved my RAK from Caardvarks this week too, some fabby gelly roll pens and glittery pens - justgreat for doodling and adding detail, thank you ladies!

Also got some cards made!

The Inkstains weekly challenge is wings, and as I was a bit late for the DCM one I thought I'd have a go. I love the Dragonfly punch from Xcut, its so delicate and as realistic as a punch shape can get.

Ingredients: Anna Griffin and Rubber Stampede stamps, Xcut dragonfly punch, glittery pen and ribbon.

The extra challenge on DCM was to make a card with the following:
  • 1 stamp
  • 1 piece of chipboard (bought or "faux")
  • 1 piece of metal
Slight bit of cheating, had to use 2 bits of metal as I had to use a brad to hold the metal anchor.

Ingredients: Rubber Stampede stamp, Xcut dragonfly punch DCM vellum quote, Prima flowers, TLC scroll chip, Fiskars scallop scissors and glitter pen.

These are beautiful Ruth, really delicate and pretty. The second one is my favourite, I love the way you've used the vellum on this one

I can't believe someone else had the same theme as us AGAIN!!! Talk about coincidences - ah well, great minds think alike, as they say.

such gorgeous items! I would buy that cookery book just for the cover! Such a pretty book. In your first photo (the card with 2 tags) is the rose image a stamp? It is beautiful.
