Today I thought that I would show you a card that I made using the New Cute Companions stamps by Jayne Nestorenko. I have used Helene for this, but I cut away her wings and the seat that she was sat on. She is coloured using pro markers, and the background of the circle is coloured using distress inks. For the backing paper I made a plain sheet in My Craft Studio. So far I have not added a sentiment, this I can do later when I know who I am going to sent it to.

Today I would like to show you the Arty Farty, Colin Car that I made as a gift to my daughters best friend Sophie and her very new husband Domonic who tied the knot yesterday. What wonderful weather they had. For the car I used Snow white centura pearl card stock from Crafters Companion, and black card stock. I then used the dashboard, front grill and white wheels that are in the add on pack, that goes with the Colin Car template. Then I used mulberry roses for the seat and a horseshoe on the front with hearts on the back, these were cake decorations. I was pleased with the end result and the bride and groom loved it. This is a photo of the Bride and Groom cutting the cake As well as the pictured cake, which is in the shape of a heart, there were cupcakes as well.

The size of the card is A4, the mice are from the Summer Stories and the Original stamp sets. I coloured these with water colour pencils. The Church is from Winter Tales CD, and the backing paper from the original CD. I disguised the holly that decorates the outside of the church with ribbon and flowers. The flowers down the sides were made with some punches that I brought a long time ago from Create and Craft. Then I used mock brads in the corners and the flower embellishments were made with Nellie Snellen flower and emboss punches. The greeting was one that I made myself with a foil embosser.
