Fantastic crafting day...

... at our very good friend Viv's in Macclesfield :o) The food was to die for and the company was of the very best. Who could ask for more? :o)
I finally managed to make some cards so here are the first two. I made these for the box.
I borrowed a Little Claire stamp from one of the girls for this one, watercoloured and then Stickles on the petal edges. I did stamp a sentiment on the left side but it didn't show up very well on the Bazzill card, so had to cover it up with a brayered page I just happened to have with me :o) Added a bit of satin ribbon, will add sentiment when and if needed.

This one has a K&Co backing, stamped image is from Magenta and I coloured it with Sakura Stardust pens, matted onto textured silver card. I borrowed the sentiment stamp from one of the girls and I forgot to check where it was from!
