A Couple of New Cards

These two cards were made for my Grandad's birthday, the first from me and the boys, and the second from my mum and dad.

I've had the 'Punny Farm' set from My Favorite Things since it was launched, but haven't got round to using it yet, other than stamping some for Cory to colour in. The papers are DCWV. They came in one of the 12x12 blocks, and I thought I would never use them, but I thought I would try this. I'll admit it's not my best cards, but I think it's fun and it was quick seems as it's got to be there by Thursday!

I stamped the cows, the pun and the 'moos' in black Stazon, cut out the cows and attached them with glue dots.

The second card was a dark blue base, with the corners rounded top and bottom. The left hand side panel is white base with blue and white spotted dp from the 12x12 Masculine pack by Dovecraft. I punched a 3" scalloped circle from white card, and as I didn't have a chalk in the right colour I used eyeshadow. Us crafters can use anything for a result, eh? On top of this I cut a circle from a piece of dp from the same pack as before and finished it with a 1cm brad (can't remember where it's from). Made the corner piece with the same blue and white cardstock as before and added some mini brads. Finished with a bit of ribbon and some peel offs for the sentiment, as I didn't have a suitable stamp.

Off to start Cory's birthday cards.....
