Well where do I start? These 3 are fab! Love the 1st one for the papers and the swirls etc; love the 2nd one for the fab stamps and the great distressing you did; and adore the 3rd one - just because it is so good. Love the monochrome - never tried that but will do now with your permission of course! You have been a very busy bee you have. Never tire of reading your posts - they are so funny sometimes!

All fantastic cards but really love the shades of grey football one --and love your use of corrugated cardboard might have to have a go with that --save plenty but not used any on a card
