Do you know the saying about the cobbler's children? "The cobbler's children have no shoes". Sigh. I think the proverb could be applied to my house sometimes - the cardmaker's children have no cards. I often get so busy making cards for classes and other people that my own family tend to get neglected. Today's cards are ones I made recently for Alex and Ada for their birthdays, which are in April and July respectively. I know, parent of the year! To make matters worse, I showed them their cards and then told them they couldn't have them until I'd photographed them for blogging. I think they are used to it by now!
Ada's card was made with the Hey Girl stamp set. I would have been in big trouble if I'd used any other stamp set! I coloured it with my Blendabilities and then did a quick watercolour wash over the background, being very careful to NOT touch the Momento ink with my Aqua Painter.
Alex's card was CASEd from a fellow Demonstrator, Tracey Humphries. I can't find a blog to link to though. I saw her card in a closed demonstrator group. It's fantastically easy though - just the star within a heap of circles! Awesome boy card.
EDIT: Tracey has a Facebook page here.
Having admitted being VERY late with my two oldest children's cards, I will say that I was MUCH faster with Hudson's. He turned 8 on Sunday and I made his card yesterday. You'll have to wait until Friday to see it though, it's my Just Add Ink card for the upcoming challenge.
Bye for now,
