A few super quick cards


Hubby brought my box home from his work this weekend as it's looking a bit bare, so today I've made some quick cards to top it up a bit.  It's no good making anything particularly elaborate, as the simpler ones seem to sell better there... possibly because I don't charge as much for them!  There will probably be quite a few simple cards on my blog this week while I try and fill the box up.  I'm also trying to use some bits and pieces up that I've had sitting around for ages.

The first card is a bit of a cheat really!  It's just a sheet of paper (from a free Kate Knight pad that came with a magazine), with some cardstock from my stash, and some gems added to the flower centres.  The sentiment is a LOTV stamp from the girly A5 sheet of stamps.


Another 'cheat' card!  The image is a Penny Black stickeroo, so no stamping and colouring involved... I've got quite a few of these stickers and I never use them which seems a bit daft really, so I'm going to try and use them up.  The paper is a scrap from a K&Co sheet, green cardstock from my stash.  Added a Craftwork Cards sentiment and some card candy.


This one is based on an old sketch from the clean & simple blog.  The papers are scraps from some downloaded ones, but I'm not sure where from sorry... cardstock from my stash.  The sentiment stamp is from a Papermania birthday set, nestie stars, with buttons from my stash.

Nothing very exciting but I've managed these 3, plus another one nearly finished, plus a DT card today... and we went to Pav's mum's for dinner too!  Normally I sit down to make a quick card and shuffle things around and stare at papers and end up making one card, so I'm quite pleased really :o)  Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!

    Ps, you know the baby card you did last week? I was wondering if you could remember the name of the font you used for the sentiment? It was lovely!
