A couple of Cards

My friend asked me to make a couple of cards for her dad's birthday. Apparently 75th cards are very few and far between in the shops. This lovely chap likes his gardening and golf. The first card uses a set of AI watercolour stamps (Sir Stampalot) coloured in with my coloursoft pencils and blending solution. If you look very closely you will see my favourite stamp again! I stamped the letters (Inkadinkado I think) in versafine olympia green and just traced around the letter with a gold stardust pen.
My second card was inspired by one that my friend Jules made a little while ago. When I saw hers I thought of my friends dad, who is a very keen golfer. The image is from Digistamp Boutique coloured with promarkers.

Don't forget you have two weeks left to get your entry in for this months Sir Stampalot challenge. The prize is a Cricut machine - how cool is that? Go check it out now, and thanks for looking!
