Best Wishes

The colours here are not as in real life.
The image is by The Greeting Farm and is coloured with Copics - in real life her skin is one colour not half and half as in the photo! The card that looks red here is actually bright pink.
Flowers are by Prima, sentiment by Craftwork Cards mounted using SU punches.

Kraft card by Woodware, sticker by Making Memories, patterned paper by American Crafts.
I used a punch to make the circles and added white gel pen for a faux stitched effect, the circles have been raised up on foam squares for dimension.

Main image is Tilda (not the Magnolia Tilda!). I bought a pack of four sheets of assorted Scandinavian style images from Samuel Taylors near Skipton - haven't seen them anywhere else and can't find them online.
I struggled to match the main colour of the horse, it's not beige and it's not green and it's not brown....
Sitting at craft club wondering how to match the colour up and then Sandra walked in with a pile of card she got at a car boot sale for 50p. She had the exact shade I needed!
I kept the rest of the card simple because anything extra looked fussy and I wanted a clean style.
Stripy paper is Forever Friends by Docrafts.

A lady local to me has just signed up to be a Stampin' Up demonstrator.
This was the make & take we did at her house yesterday (the card, she gave us the sweetie bag).
I can see my bank balance suffering....

I think this would be nice for an engagement, wedding or an anniversary.
Not sure what the patterned paper is but it has a nice sheen, I layered it on grey Bazzill cardstock.
The definition sticker is an old Making Memories one and I taped some wide satin ribbon behind it.
I added some Martha Stewart butterflies and finished them with some self-adhesive gems for sparkle.

I ran some Coredinations card through the Cuttlebug using a Clockworks folder. I then used a sanding block to remove the top colour and finished with a fabric sticker and a scrap of ribbon. Not sure where the sticker is from, it's been in my stash for years.

hanglar stanglar

Another Hanglar & Stanglar image, the paper is from my scrap bag so not sure of the make.
Flower is a Martha Stewart punch and pink card (paler in real life) is DCWV.
This card needs something else but not sure what? Made it in a hurry and should have planned it better!

hanglar stanglar

Someone sent me this image of a Hanglar & Stanglar stamp. I like the stamp but the paper she used is awful! The ink looks really pale and my Copics came out all streaky.
I think the patterned paper is SEI and the sentiment is Craftwork Cards.
