A bit like buses...

No posts for days and then three come along at once! Well, this is only the second, but there might be another between now and Sunday night. My first card is a digistamp image by Mo Manning, coloured with promarkers including my brand new Burgundy one. The papers are from Summer Driggs. The quote and sentiment are both computer generated. Steve's Dad adores his trains and given half the chance this would definitely be him!
The second card is my entry for this week's DU2DS challenge which is Punched shapes or die cuts. The images are the Jim Series from Digistamp Boutique. I coloured them with promarkers and put them onto an 8x8 card generously given to me by my good friend Lynne (They are huge and a bit daunting!) The papers are from Summer Driggs again. Thanks for looking!

  3. Great cards, the train I particularly like cos I can see my dad doing that too, the sentiment on the other made me laugh and brings the whole card together. Brilliant! thanks for playing with us at DU2DS this week

  4. Wonderful cards! Great colours too, the sentiment on the first one couldn't be truer.
    My favourite quote is similar -
    "We don't stop playing 'cos we grow old, we grow old 'cos we stop p;aying".

  5. Both fab cards, especially the first one. What a great sentiment. And I love that digistamp! Excellent use of the 8 x 8 card too.

  6. Ohh Sally, your train card brought a tear to my eye. This would have been perfect for my Dad too, he was mad on steam trains and I've spent many hours waiting on draughty stations when younger waiting to see a particular train come through!!!! Happy memories.
    Hope you're having a great weekend.
