Paintbox Poppets CD Rom and Stamps

Good morning everyone and today i am sharing two more paintbox poppets cards using the 2 exclusive stamps.  However first of all just a quick update on yesterday.  Leann and I went to the ross paper craft show at Nissan, Sunderland and i set myself a budget before going as I'm a bit of a loose cannon at craft shows.  Its never worked before but i set a budget of £30 and spent £27.85.  I’m so impressed with my bit self……. Although i did have my Leann with me who is a calming influence when it comes to my spending and she normally says’ do you really need that’.  However towards the end as i finally succumbed to some lovely papers she was saying’  ooo have you seen these, have you seen them’ while pointing to some journalling tags.  I told her off for tempting me and then resisted.  Ha ha its a good job were know each other well.

Ok, my cards.  These two are the last two i made for the TV shows with Sara and the POW on Create and Craft.  What a phenomenal success the shows were, i think it was a record POW sell out for Sara in uber quick time.  However Sara's team at CC have pulled out all the stops over the weekend and have managed to start on more production for orders with extended delivery of the 19th March.   So yes you will have to wait a bit longer but i can assure you they are well worth the wait.

These two cards are made using the two exclusive stamps that are only available from C&C.    I've coloured her with my spectrum noirs and also used papers from the CD Rom, matted onto Tim Holtz Coredinations.  This was actually using one of the stamping companions from the cd so i printed straight onto Neenah  card to use with my alcohol pens.

For the inside of the card i have used the verse writer on the cd and used the sentiment that comes with the stamp itself.
My second card is the little boy with the cricket bat and ball.  However my cricket ball looks more like an apple!

Hope you like them.
