Two of a kind.

Hello...I decided to have a play with some Uniko products last weekend. I picked three sets of stamps which are NBUS.........but now they are not anymore!

This is what I came up with..........

I used:- 'You are,Yes you', Background Pinstripe and Sentiments Outlined.
              Coloured with my new Phil Martin watercolour pens that were a surprise from hubby at Christmas.They have a really fine point on them so were perfect for colouring the sentiment. I didn't use watercolour card for the flower though so they didn't blend on the card I used otherwise they self blend.
I fussy cut the flower and raised the whole panel cut with a stitched rectangle on foam for a bit of dimension.
I am really quite pleased how this came together so I made another with a different sentiment and different colours.

Two cards in one afternoon!...that's a first for me.

For those of you that read my last post, Thomas loved his card, he thought it was like a transformer and put his hand in it like a puppet and let his imagination take over. It probably didn't last the day! it was appreciated that's for sure.

I hope those of you in the UK have survived the storm  and the floods that it brought along with the gales.I gather storm Dennis is paying us a visit this weekend, so time to hibernate again. Today however is sunny intervals and no wind...a very welcome change.

Thank you to those of you taking time out of your busy lives to read is as always so very much appreciated. Blog land seems very quiet these days.

Right I am off to the Playground to catch up with my mates as all the bits on this card were from snippets, except the base card of course...then I'm off to an 8th Birthday Party at Uniko followed by a couple of other a busy day for me!!

I'll be back with hubby's Valentine card at the weekend so be sure to stop by again.
Take care
