Two cards to share

>> Friday, 11 March 2011

I hope you have had a good week. I've been busy with my new business this week. I have finally decided on a name so now its all systems go to build the website and choose my stock. It's very exciting and quite scary at the same time. I've realised that you can do all the necessary research to make sure your plan is viable but at the end of the day there is no guarantee that anybody will buy anything!

I've got two cards to show you today. The first I started at the start of the week but a couple of images went in the bin so it's taken until now to finish it.

Tilda is coloured with aqua pens and distress inks and the papers are NitWits. I had planned to use a fabulous new diecut on this card but it didn't fit with the sketch so I'll save that for another day. I'm going to enter this card into these challenges;

Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
Stampacular - Best Wishes

My second card is for the Clean & Simple challenge. I used some chipboard flowers which I covered with some scraps of Papermania paper. I'm really enjoying making this kind of card now. I love colouring images but it takes quite a long time and its nice to try different styles.

I hope you have a lovely weekend. The forecast is for rain on Sunday but hopefully we'll see some sunshine tomorrow. I dried my first load of washing on the line this week - Spring is definitely on the way!

Lovely Sharon, and great colour combo's on both. Got my washing dry outside too this week! May even attempt some gardening later.
Good luck with your business.

Hi Sharon, two fabulous cards, I do love CAS but sadly am useless at it, the patterned chipboard flowers are really stunning!! That Tilda is gorgeous and the NitWit papers are fabulous, such a great colour scheme.

Glad you could join us at the Simon Says Stamp challenge,
Heather xx

Two great cards, I especially like the pink and brown one.

They're both gorgeous in completely different ways! I love the gingham and the ribbon treatment on the first and love the simplicity of the second and those beautiful covered flowers.
