Pocket Card…

The card today is one I made about 6 weeks ago & have been meaning to post, but things have gotten in the way.  I was really happy with the way it turned out.  I used a couple of Techniques on this card – Sponging, Stampin’ Pastels & Shimmer Paint.

Old Friend…

I’ve dug out another old stamp set – Great Friend for today’s card.  This woud have to be one of my all time favourites & ask myself “why don’t I use it more?”  Good question, so fingers crossed you will see more of it this year!
