Springy trains


When a friend saw my card with wobbly dinosaurs, she asked if I could make a card with trains on springs. Fortunately, I had some Papermania mini springs and found up a Hunkydory topper and a railcard padded sticker that seemed suitable. The backing paper is Basic Grey Obscure, on to which I printed the wavy railway line. The sentiments were from Kanban.

The card doesn't look as dull in real life!



A birthday insert is being added inside.

White Christmas


Yesterday's challenge for Facebook Sunday's with Santa week 30 was 'shades of white' - I've kept to the challenge except for the stazon ultramarine ink for stamping - well, white wouldn't have shown up, would it? Lol! The sentiment stamp is from Personal Impressions.

It's always difficult to get a photo of white on white, so this is the best I can do, especially as the rain came just as I wanted to get the photo.

Everything used was from my offcut boxes, including the glittered swirl pieces originally from Poundland. Ribbons from Hobbycraft.
