Thank You Bunting

Here is the first of two new release digi's from Jellypark. Actually, that is a bit of a lie as I've only used one of the 4 different types of bunting on this particular digi! I've printed it directly onto cardstock - lovely white linen effect card (a bit of faffing with trimming slight excess from each side with my wonky ruler but you'd never know!) and then coloured with Promarkers and a titchy bit of stickles for the spotty bits - you'll need to look close to see it!

Around the edges of the cards I've dotted a line with a gel pen. And the sentiment is two stamps - the Just To Say bit is from a Honey and Hugs acrylic stamp set and the Thank You is from a freebie magazine acrylic stamp set by Ladybird Ink.

And yes, I was a little cack handed when stamping the first sentiment on the pink card but these are just samples.

Are you wondering why the pink and blue?! Well, I'm going to be an Auntie in late February or early March and I've offered to make all the birth announcements and thank you cards and I've made a start on them as you can see! I don't know what it's going to be yet, just that its a baby but I'm good to go for either colour.

Plus these were pretty quick to make once I'd sorted out the wonky ruler so easy enough to make a batch.

Ooh! Nearly forgot! In addition to the two new digi releases this week from Jellypark (my second one will be blogged at some point over the weekend) there is a new charity stamp to buy - Little Havens is the charity for 2012 that Jellypark is supporting and Claire will donate all proceeds from the stamps to the charity. And at £1.25 each they are very affordable. So look out for them! I've bought mine!!
