DT Cards for A Passion For Stamps......
























Hiya peeps!

I'm going to be very quick with my post as I meant to upload these cards this morning - here are a couple of samples I made up using one of Ruth's fabulous stamps available at A Passion For Stamps, this one is 'bunny in the bath'. I thought I'd have a go at making shaped cards as I've seen this sort of thing before in blogland, but as I didn't have any templates to use I just cut them out by hand....... hope they don't look too amature, lol!





























I used papers by Kay&Co for both cards and coloured the images with Polys (Stickles added to the bubbles for sparkle). The flowers are Prima and I used some more paper lace from Around The Block. The pearls and buttons are from my stash and the sentiment is one of my faves by Studio G - I like it because it looks like a clothing label! I must just add that the brown marks on the girl card are part of the paper pattern and not dirt....... looks like I dropped a bit of gravy, lol!





























Well I told you it was a quickie tonight....... I'm off to get tea now and then I'll hopefully get to sit down later with a cuppa for a mega bloghop and catch up!!

Enjoy your evening and thanks for your visit ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
