Tattered Lace Dies George and Air Mail

Afternoon crafting friends , dull with wet  here , just the weather I hate , roll on spring time !

My first card (I'll probably give to my hubby ) features a tattered lace die George , he is so smart in his suit . I've coloured the die with promarkers  and add white gel pen to the tie . The stylish London background is printed from a my craft studio cd rom called Art Deco . The outer matting squares are Sue Wilson noble dies double pierce squares , I wouldn't be without these , just the ticket for large square cards. The stamped sentiment was part of a set free with issue 165 of cardmaking and paper craft magazine .

challenges entered : cd Sunday challenge : make it male 
oolala creations : for a man or a boy 

My second  card is cheerful and bright  , the die is airmail by tattered lace , I've cut it out in white card then coloured it with alcohol markers with a touch of orange stickles on the flower stamens .
The paper is tattered lace with some of the flowers coloured in orange , the border is very old stash
( I'm such a hoarder ) . The stamp is inkadinkadoo.

Tattered Lace magazine subscription dies

Hello crafting friends , hope you had a great Christmas and got lots of crafty goodies . My hubby got me the Tattered Lace magazine subscription  (yes I did ask for it ,he's not that good! ), with it comes lots of gorgeous free dies and I have used them to make this card . The lovely lady is called Dolly and I've coloured her with pro markers . To the panel die I've coloured the flowers with promakers then  over layered in blue glitter card and used the glitter card for the frame, sentiment  and ivy die cuts ...well it is still Christmas and we all love a bit of sparkle. I've managed to photograph outside , It's a glorious sunny day but very very cold and frosty , great for catching the sparkle on glitter card.
