I have made this card using the super cute MelJen image she used to sell on her website. I have coloured him in using Promarkers, and the background papers are all from a 'Safari Kids' pack from DCWV i have had for years in my stash (the paper pack is dated 2009). The buttons are also from my stash i have had for years too.

I had made this for a Sketch challenge over on the Trimcraft website. But i would alos like to enter this into the following

Thank You card My personal stamp challenge #23

Hello Again,
I have another card i have made using my actual Stamps!! I made this card for a friend who loves distressing etc, so i have had a go at a Sewing theme distressed card.

I Started by Stamping a Gingham (Kaiserkraft Clear Stamp) onto some card, the i over stamped some sewing themed stamps i got free from a magazine.I also Die cut some Sizzix Die's Sewing machine and bobbins. Distressed it all. The two Thank you greeting are Woven ones from Making memories. I stamped a bobbins and cut it out then wrapped some Twine around it.

Mermaid and My personal Stamp Challenge #22

Hi everyone,

I have made this mermaid card from a Rubber stamp i bought about two years ago from a craft fair i can't remember which stall but it was within a big bundle of rubber stamps for a £5 i think it may have been 'The Rubber Stamp company ' or something similar or Rubberneck comes to mind too, but it is more than likely discontinued know has they were selling off loads of loose rubber stamps.

I am trying to use my actual stamps more as i seem to use Digi's alot lately, I have so many of them but never get round to getting them out..

I have coloured her using promarkers. The background is a die cut (Sizzix die) and a Clear rubber stamp (An Old Sizzix Stamp) and heat embossed it green i thought it looked a little like seaweed!  The base card i have inked over slightly with a Chalk ink and then stamped a few fishes faintly ( The fishes are from a Woodware set). Finally i added some stickles to the edge of the Die cut.
I will try to take a picture of all the stamps used asap and add them to this post.
