A bit of this and that

Thought I'd share with you a few cards I've made recently from images I coloured with promarkers whilst on holiday. I'll start though, with my anniversary card that I made for Steve in July.
The image is a penny black slapstick called loving and hugging. Perfect as he loves ducks. I watercoloured it using distress inks and used large scalloped nesties to cut it out. The backing paper is from an artylicious cd and the sentiment was computer generated.
This card and the next are both penny black stamps coloured with promarkers, kindly stamped for me by my lovely blog friend, Jules. Aren't they cute?
The papers for my first one were in my stash and for the second one were on my computer entitled May Freebies - sorry, I'm not sure where from! Edit: The lovely Pinky tells me the pink ones are from Tinker and co.The flowers on the first were punched and made myself, but the second has prima flowers and punched leaves.
The post  below this one will be from the walk we did yesterday. If you don't like bees and wasps you perhaps won't want to look!

Oooo Sally love these cards the images are so delightful I have had my eye on that Slapstick one but needed a little inspiration so thank you for that. I love the Hedgie on and the kitty which is such fun, all beautifully coloured.

Hi Sal

Love all of your cards.

I really like your anniversary card. I would never have thought of using that image for it but it works so well.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Love Jules xx

Your anniversary card is brilliant! Like Jules I would never have thought of using this image either. You've reminded me I have a wood backed one that has a matching 'from behind' stamp. Must remember to get them out.

The other two cards are lovely too. I always love that fat little cat in the bra image. It's sure to raise a smile.
