Four Owls

Here is the first of the Jellypark releases for this fortnight! The digi is actually four owls but I've separated them and made four different cards! Each have been coloured with Aquamarkers and all the specific details to each card appears with it.

Glad to say the indigestion has now completely vanished! I was in agony again Thursday early evening, coupled with having to keep going to school to drop the boys off at a disco (infants and juniors had different times) plus it was cold and wet so I felt right sorry for myself! Had a rather hot bubble bath at around 9pm and volia! All the pains went! Although I think it was helped by half a bag of midget gems! So I had a great night sleep and feel fine now!

Right, onto the cards!Card 1 (above): Papers are from Boys and Girls collection (sorry, no longer available) from Funky Hand plus a bit of faux stitching and a silver heart charm taken from a rather naff bracelet from the poundshop. Ribbon is from my stash.

Card Positioning Systems: 5th Anniversary - Day 1
CRAFT: Valentine / Love
Cute Card Thursday: Pink Valentine

Card 2 (above): Paper is Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 kit (just can't stop using it!) along with a Nesties die and a brand new Marianne Creatables die that I've bought recently! I've added a heart recycled from a Christmas card and a Studio G acrylic stamped sentiment.

CRAFT: Valentine / Love href="">I Love Promarkers: Love Is In The Air
Forever Friends (Monthly): Valentine

Card 3 (above): I've used a sheet of rather posh Tom Smith Christmas paper for this card as I love the colours! Faux stitching around the edge and I've used some red ric rac ribbon underneath a strip of what can only be described as industrial ribbon! It came from the Scrap Store in a big roll and it does look like ribbon but more fabric like!

The very blingy heart is actually an earring! Jacob and I spent a good 10 minutes one morning on the way to nursery 3 years ago going through all the reduced jewellery in Asda - these should have been £2 for 2 pairs and were reduced to 50p so I got 4 of these hearts for just over 10p each! Jacob does love a bargain!

Charisma Cardz: Things with Wings
I Love Promarkers: Love Is In The Air
Sisterhood of Crafters: Valentine
Shopping Our Stash: Hearts and Valentines

Card 4 (above): Again, Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 paper with a ruffle added across the centre and another strip of the industrial ribbon from the Scrap Store. I had to be inventive and used my Nesties as a template to draw around as the proper square shape was too big. So if it looks a little wonky, that's why!

So there 'you have it'! And in case you've not noticed, I am determined to do all 15 Card Positioning System sketches for their 5th Anniversary celebrations. I've got 7 more to do with a further 2 yet to be revealed, so I better crack on with those 9!
