Cards time again... and the chance to win some Blog Candy!!!!

Lately, I've had some odd flashes of inspiration. Funnily enough, these have come at moments when I've had to create a card in a hurry. Like the two following... I think I'm safe blogging them, because the first one should have been received by now, and the second one, well, the recipient is unlikely to browse my blog (not impossible, but unlikely!).

This first one definitely has an air of the black and white movies. Prompted by the "Oh Gawd, got to make a card now!" type sentiment, I dug in my box of tricks and came up with the pink edged card pre-stamped with the woman's face. 15 minutes later, I'd teamed this up with the black card, the monochrome background paper, and some silver peel-offs. Add a simple sentiment, et voila!



The second card was again born from speed, partly cos I knew my beloved would be fed up with watching TV on his own, and I need to post this card tomorrow. So what can you do with two stamps, one colour of ink and one colour of embossing powder, a small piece of rainbow coloured vellum, and a plain, purple pearlescent card?

This.....




Hope you like them!


In fact, I've had an idea.

Using the same criteria, I'd like to see YOU make a card. A maximum of two stamps, one colour of ink, one colour of embossing powder (can be the same or a tonal one). No pre-printed background papers!

And I'm even going to offer up some blog candy. Come back tomorrow, and see what's on offer.....

Then go and make your cards, stick them on your blog, and link back to mine. I'll then pick a winner out at random.

And the deadline is....... ooh, let's have a long one! Midnight on Saturday the 18th October!

Can't wait to see what you come up with!
