Ombre!!


I am back in the craft room at last,but my mojo decided to stay on holiday!! I wanted to make a couple of cards for the "Ombre" challenge over at A Blog Named Hero to try and kick start my creative side!!

This first is a very simple Thank You card using a Hero Arts stamp and a few pearls.



This second card is a masculine Birthday card, I am running short of mens cards in my stash and need to think of some more ideas.


Heres one more photograph of beautiful Lake Garda in Italy, I love all the gorgeous geraniums everywhere!


Its a long Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK, lets hope the weather stays fine, have a great weekend!

Lovely ombre effect: must give this a go! Great choice of stamp too. I don't recognise it but then I guess my knowledge of HA stamps isn't what it used to be because they seem so hard to come by on UK websites. Enjoy the bank holiday, Jo x

Great ombré card, Sally - love the warm colours! I love the five line background on your second card too - I find it perfect for masculine cards :) Your photos of Lake Garda are stunning - glad you had a good holiday!
