Spring Lambs

Good morning all!
It's Thursday so it's time for me to share a Just Inklined card with you!
Here's what I made this time!

This image is Lambs
Such a sweet image for any occasion, especially at this time of year!
The person this card is for is currently helping a friend out with lambing!
As this card is destined for a man, I wanted to keep it clen & simple 
& give it a rustic feel! I used Kraft card for the base,

I did a bit of shading with my flexmarkers, cut out with an oval nestie,
then inked with Vintage Linen & Frayed Burlap
distress inks whilst still in the die!

I added a piece of white card & a little bit of Jute (Burlap) Tie Strap which  was
 originally intended for garden use but I thought it was perfect for my card!
The buttons were in my stash & were recycled from an old jumper of hubby's
The sentiment is a LOTV stamp.
Thanks for popping in, I hope you enjoyed your visit!

I've made a birthday card using the image Present Surprise
The papers are Papermania & have been in my stash for a very long time!

I coloured the image with promarkers, picking out some of the 
colours in the papers! I will add a name to that label later!
A few little brads & a little picture tab to embellish!

I added some DP to the inside of the card too!

Live Laugh Love Breathe

Good morning lovely blog readers!
The card I have to share with you is one I made for a bride to be!
The lady in question is one of the girls I work with who is getting
married on the lovely island of Majorca in June.
As the wedding as abroad, and not everyone can attend,
we had a works lunch out in advance to wish her luck for her big day.

The image I have used is a specail image called 
 Breathe from Saturated Canary.
I don't think this one is available in the shop.
I love Krista's images & I was nervous about colouring this one
however, I am happy with the result I achieved.
I still need to work on the hair a bit though!
I kept it fairly simple with only the words, which were mounted on foam pads,
for embellishments.

A closer look at the image

Here you can see the inside of the card.
As there were a lot of people who wanted to write good luck
messages in the card, I added two panels inside.
Glad to say the bride to be was delighted with her card
& all of the messages written inside it!
