Two for One

Apologies for being missing in action recently - still been quite poorly and have been rather sick and ill. Bit like having a really massive hangover but without the alcohol and a bad cold on top of it. Nice.

Anyway, I'd started the last Sarah Hurley challenge which was a sketch and didn't manage to finish it in time. So I was pretty pleased when I saw that the current one was

To Use Die Cuts

Perfect! So I combined last weeks sketch (sort of) and this week's die cuts! And managed to make two cards with it as well! All the papers are from Dreams Come True from Funky Hand. I've used images from Soft Pencil and coloured with Promarkers.

The die cuts are Cuttlebug train set and I think Sizzix train track (bought the train track die cuts from ebay a long time ago!) The buttons and string are from my stash.

Apologies for the slightly blurry second picture - combination of yuckiness and having to kneel on a hard kitchen floor to take the picture!

With a bit of luck I'll be feeling better soon and back to normal!

  • All papers: Dreams Come True from Funky Hand
  • Images: Soft Pencil, coloured with Promarkers
  • Die Cuts: Train - Cuttlebug, Track - Sizzix
  • Everything else: My stash
