My brother's Birhday

Hi all. What lovely weather we are having, sad its gone all cloudy at the moment. They say rain is coming hope not as we have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend coming up.

Made two cards one is on the same lines as I did before on Carol Cockbain Class it was for my sister-in-law as I missed her birthday didn't realise it was day after Peter my other half. Its the Vase stencil with white pearl embossing paste and coloured in with cosmic shimmers and on the side is a lovely Martha Stewart punch and a little butterfly. Hope you like it.

The other one was for my brother Kevin he is a Plumber and you know what builders are like well it was for a laugh. Kevin's Birthday was on St. Georges day I usually make cards that have a Patriotic theme but I think I've exhausted that one. I made one of those folding cards using  the Tim Holtz papers from his stack they are gorgeous so right for men cards. As you can see I cuttle bugged the different pieces of the card, I did use the copics for colouring and also the new distress inks for the papers and edges of the nesties. I really like the new colours of the distress inks. The stamps are the Murray and Ethel ones from Creative Expressions.

Hope you like them and I do appreciate the comments so thank you.
Love to all and Happiness.
