I've been stamping again!!!

I've been playing with my new stamps again. I've inked up a couple of Magnolia's and Sugar Nellies and heres what I came up with! First up is Edwin with his oar! I'm not sure where is boat is though. I coloured him to match the papers which are part of a DCWV Stack. I'm not too keen on this card. I had the layout in my head but it just didnt seem to go quite as I had imagined.
Next up is another one of my all time favourite cards. This is one I made for my brother to give to his girlfriend for valentines day. I got the Edwin and Tilda from The Glitter Pot sale in January. They are actually from the Christmas set but I thought they'd work great for Valentines Day or even Anniversary or Wedding Cards. I've cut the scalloped heart and inner heart by hand, sadly I dont have the heart nestabilities, yet...
This was a bit of a quickie for me. Sometimes I really struggle getting the right layout so I decided to find a sketch and follow it! instead of changing and moving things around like I usually do. I love this little Edwin, he's so cute.
This is one quite similar to the cars I posted a few days ago, but I like this one even better which is why I'm sharing it! I have quite a lot of corrugated card in my stash and I've never used any, but love the depth its given to this card. I might have to start using it more often! I'm still loving my new punches! Especially this Spiral Punch and the Tab Punch from Stampin Up! I think most of my cards will have one of these used of them for some time yet!
I coloured this image before deciding what I was going to do with it and now I think I want to eat it. Its mint choc chip! How delicous! I think the mint coloured card is from the Swimming Pool range by Doodlebug, I really like it, and think I should probably use it more often.

Well the snow is melting fast here. My poor snowman's head fell off at lunchtime today. It's really sad, but to be honest, we've had a really good week of snow and it may be time for it to just go now. I'm happy if it wants to continue snowing but all this wet slushy stuff isn't nice. In all we built 4 snowmen over the week and generally had great fun. I have to say that the brightness of the snow made it a lot easier to get a good picture of my cards.
I've had a few orders just lately so have made quite a lot of cards, although I can't post a few of them just yet. I'm never quite sure who's checking my blog and who's not, so to be on the safe side I've decided to wait a while.
I think thats about all for today! I need to get on and catch up with some blogs as I haven't checked any for a few days now.
Bye for now!

Great set of cards Zoe. I do like the SU punches, I have them on my list.

Thanks for the lovely comments you left on my blog. The flower on my Spoon Full of Sugar challenge card was made using a Flora Doodle flower from Joanna Sheen and the centre rose was made using instructions I got from Gizmo (Do-Crafts) gallery. I think they are on page 5 or 6. They are really easy to do and a lot of fun. Can be fiddly if you use the small daisy punch, but they do look nice. Sue.x
