I`m back!

I`ll start by appologising for being AWOL for so long. I picked up a nasty virus from somewhere ( my Dad I think lol) and although I was only poorly for a few days, it really knocked me for six and took ages to properly get over it. What with the run up to Christmas and everything I didn`t get a lot of time for crafting. Anyway excuses over I`m here now.

I want to wish every one of you a very happy and prosperous New Year and I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

My first card is for my son`s girlfriends birthday which was on wednesday. The stamp is the one I have been raving about  from Flourishes and couldn`t wait to start playing with over Christmas. This is Gerbera Daisy and it`s great because you are not limited to colours. Sons GF is Rachel and she loves bright colours so I coloured this one in Bright Yellow marker. The background paper is from Papermania and I thought the blue contrasted nicely. I a;so got a Martha Stewart  punch from my daughter so I used that along the top. Some flat backed pearls ( ofcourse) to finish off.
The second card is for my daughters friend Karen. It was also her birthday on wednesday and I used the same stamp but this time coloured in bright lilac.
The background paper is Papermania again.  I`ve had this pad of papers for ages and keep forgetting to use them, they are so versatile and come in a good range of colours too. Once again some flat backed pearls to finish off.
Right I`m off to play with my other new stamp now and I promise not to leave it so long this time.
Thanks for popping by .........Lynne xxx
