just playing around again.xx

good evening all, i hope you have all had a good weekend.well as you know i was sulking over my non whiff of joy stamps so whats a girl to do but console herself with a little trip out today to buy a few stamps to tide her over until her others arrive.so i bought 3 different stamp sets by creative expressions and i have had a little play with each set, which i am going to share with you, if you want to that is!!!.lol.

so card 1 is made using the set called Vintage Family.i have used cream and biscuit coloured card.all stamps from the set.distress inks.the sentiment i have cut up so i can lay it down the way i wanted it.the sentiment says "while we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is about" isn`t that such a beautiful sentiment.

and a sideways piccy.

card no2 is using the set called Wine Label.i have used burgandy and white card.all stamps from the set.distress inks.thought this would work well for a man who likes a glass of red.lol

and a sideways piccy.

and last but not least, one for the kids this set is called Sea Life and this has lots of fab little sea critters and sentiments.i had a blast making this one.i have used blue and white card.all stamps from the set.faux stitching.distress inks.promarkers.

and a sideways piccy.

thankyou so much for peeking, i do like to have a play around sometimes and i have recently found another outlet to sell my cards and these inked ones are the ones that have sold first, so guess i will have to make a few more.i hope you like my new cards and am sure my whiff of joys will arrive tomorrow, fingers crossed as its our stock take at work on wednesday so i won`t be able to play then.enjoy the rest of your evenings.i have a little blog hopping to catch up on now.ttfn.luv coops.xxx
