Crafting on a day off work :D

Hello Bloggers!

Well, I had Friday off work and when I had finished my chores and before I entertained my student daughter I did venture into the craft room and make some cards.

Firstly, I tackled my July monthly stamp from Little Claire's to make two cards. The first was designed by Helen Nile. I have two photo's to show of this card.

Such a cute stamp and I am sure that I could think about many uses for this one.
This second card using this stamp was a quickie using an embossing folder called Birds that was sanded down and then with the stamped image, coloured with Promarkers and the greeting. Not to bad eh?

My last card is as a result of a trip to Hobbycraft with my good friend Karen. They had a Martha Stewart Punch of the chickens reduced from £15.99 to £8.99. With my love of hens and ducks combined with a love of Martha Stewart Punches, how could I resist. I knew exactly which stamp I would ink up to give it a try. Another quick card but effective and loved by a hen lover!

Happy crafting!
