NEC & 2 Birthday Cards

I had hoped to blog at the weekend, but I have been really busy. Saturday I went to an all day scrapbooking class at the Craft Den. We did 3 great pages and it was a lovely day.

Sunday I went to the NEC with my Sister. It was a very early start and putting the clocks forward didn't help!!! We had a great day though and really enjoyed ourselves. My Sister tagged along with me for company.

I loved the Magnolia & Lily of the Valley stand - they were without a doubt my favourites!!

I have made two birthday cards for my Cousin, Rochelle. Her birthday is tomorrow and I thought I would ink my new Magnolia!!! I bought a couple of the new pirate images from Magnolia along with a mini stamp, but when I saw this old Magnolia image I just had to have it!! My Sister didn't like it all, but I thought it would be nice to have an old one!! I like her anyway.

I coloured her with my copics and used my new MS punch. The paper with blue roses on it is Magnolia. This is the card I made from me, my sister & my little brother.

The second is the one I have made for my Mum. I got my WOJ Willow out and decided to make a card that I have made before. I changed it a little and added a bit of bling, but I just think this card looks effective. I have added some spotty silver ribbon with a little pin.

Right I am going to go back to mounting my new stamps so they are all ready to use over the bank holiday weekend.
