Brayering + a few charity cards

Good morning everyone, lovely blue sky and fluffy clouds here at the moment, but as I type it is going a tad less bright!
Before I show you my cards I would like to cover a misconception about my brayering. I love to read your lovely comments about my brayering abilities, but I must 'fess up and tell you all that I am no good at what might be termed doing it 'properly'  I use a large brayer that is as wide as my Big & Juicy inkpads, (which are of course multi colours) and only go in a straight line across the card, which I have cut to the same width, and back again, then the same aagain at right angles, a big brayering no no! I have watched videos on the subject and can never get the wonderful effects that they do and they always end up in the bin! 
Okay, time to show you some cards before you all nod off :o)




These are all very simple 4x4 mini cards, the bottom 2 being recycled robins from last year's cards. Not much else I can say about them really, but I hope that the League of Friends of Ilkeston Hospital can make a few pennies from them :o)

Hi Jackie, I should think these will be really popular cards, they are a great design, I love the embossed background behind your own photos. I've never tried brayering, it sounds quite difficult! CoB
