more dusties and more

this is a bit of a mixture tonight
first i want to show you the gorgeous card i received this morning of nessy it's lovley great image so chuffed and inside there were some images for me too
so thanks nessy really appreciate it

the next bit is:
a notelet set on a larger scale than the others i made
i used 12x12 sheet of card covered with this scrummy K and Co paper didn't want to use it as it's to nice but bit the bullet mind you there is another sheet left as only used 2 sheets so i can keep that to stroke
used A6 card stock which i also covered in the paper and the flipside of the paper then stamped some bella images and phrases on more k and co paper and matted them up on gold mirri i love the outcome so pleased with it i don't want to part with it now

last but not least some more dusties
these are all stamps from a box of stamps i had from QVC about a year ago i think all small images and quite a mix haven't done them all yet the others will be here in a few days they need painting up
i have made them on 4x4 to sell for 50p at the sheltered housing
to keep the cost down i have just embossed the white card then stamped and matted up image so cheap and cheerful affordable cards
hope you like

all the cards i have made recently for the failed school fete have just been packed up with a load of xmas cards from last year and are off to the fund raising at our local jigsaw group which is for kids and young adults with yes you guessed AS
thanks for you commnets for Ian he was really chuffed with your good wishes and congratulation
oh forgot to take some pics of the little books and bags i made for yvonnes kids to give to the classroom assistants at the end of term i'll do it for tomorrow promise
