Catching Up With January

I have only had time to post my entries to the Craft Barn challenge over the past year so it's time to do a bit of catching up with my other makes. I don't intend trawling back through the things I made last year but to start at January 2014. I like to use my blog to record for my own reference what supplies I've used to create a project. Although in the case of these three cards the information is not complete as I've had to rely on memory because the notes I made at the time of making have disappeared..

My first card was for our train-crazy youngest grandson's fifth birthday. To make the background clouds I made a stencil from a piece of card, and then dusted Distress Ink with a brush around the edge. The picture of Thomas was found on the web. I cut an additional face which I adhered with foam pads for a 3d effect.

The second January card was made for my brother and sister-in-law for their wedding anniversary. The embossed background card was attached to the base card with foam pads and the heart was left free to swing.

These are all superb cards Maggie; bet your little one loved Thomas and I love your clouds. Especially like the anniversary card - I have that stamp and use it for lots of projects!!!
Very pretty 'One' card, love the papers you have used.
