Cards for Kids

Very quick post, got to go and get hubby from the train station in 15 mins. Two cards for the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday to make a card for a child. First, a card for middle daughter who will be turning 7 on Monday - she requested the image and the colour scheme :)

Couldn't resist and had to go buy a couple of Sarah Kay stamps - I had lots of Sarah Kay stuff when I was younger (probably early teens), like notebooks, cushions, pencils etc. - they were very much the thing to have! So all these cute images are taking me on a trip down memory lane :) Used bits and bobs from stash for this card, like Lakeland flowers, ricrac, gingham paper, and stamped sentiment from Studio G.

Next, my inlaws requested a card for their neighbours' little girl who is turning 1!

Used my Little Claire elephants, watercoloured them, printed circular sentiment and punched out, added a few brads and done. Hope they'll like it!

Right, better get going, and then back to decluttering and tidying this tip we call a study/craft room. Got to make space for stuff, because... guess what... I've just signed up as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator! AAAAAaaaaahhhhh! I'm very excited, love their stuff, but I'm a bit nervous, too, never done anything like a workshop before. Sure it'll be fine :) More later, but anybody interested in a workshop (West Lothian/Edinburgh) or in ordering, please get in touch :)
Thanks for stopping by!
