Card making frenzy!!

I have spent a bit of time over the past few days making some cards. I purchased the new Lola Rose image stamps from Pink Petticoat, and just had to print some out and colour them in LOL.

Here are a few cards I made with some birthday images - the papers are Doodlebug, and an unbranded sheet which I got from a pack in Tescos, and the buttons are also Doodlebug. The sentiments come from the Girly Curly sentiments set, also from Pink Petticoat.

Then I made a start on my Christmas cards !! These are from the same set of image stamps, and the papers are Doodlebug papers that I got free with an old copy of Scrapbook Inspirations.

The sentiments come from the Girly Curly set again.

I had great fun watercolouring them in, although I was a bit nervous at first, seeing as printer ink is not very waterproof. But using a waterbrush and taking the pigment straight off my watercolour pencils and onto the paper seemed to work very well.

So thats 10 christmas cards down, don't know how many more to go!! At least its a start, not bad for me, usually I start them in December....
