With Sympathy....

Hello everyone! I have been MIA for a bit, first we were off on a short holiday to beautiful Bali in Indonesia and then I was busy with Maker Faire.......where I had most awesome time! But more on that later!
Handmade sympathy card with #altenew stamps
For now I'm sharing a card I made for Altenew's June Inspiration Challenge.
I created the background by masking the cardstock base with washi tape and added some distress ink. The flowers are from the Vintage Flowers Altenew Stamp set which I've handcut. The sentiment is also from Altenew.

Thanks for visiting!

Father...

Hello everyone! I find it really tough and challenging to make masculine cards and this one was no different!
Father's day card with #winnieandwalter , #concordand9th and #wplus9 stamps
The leaves are from Winnie and Walter. I stamped "father" with Concord and 9th Sophisticated Script stamp set, I messed up the 'r' in the end but I decided to use it anyway...
