>>> 365 Cards Day 58 & 59 <<<

Decided to combine both cards in one post. Let's start with the recent one, Day 59 which is called 'A Certain Sentiment'. Today's sentiment is 'I Miss You' or something similar. So here's what I've done:

Patterned papers by Kelly Panacci (the world travel type of papers). Stamped images by See D's Travel set, RiverCity Rubber Stamps (postcard image) and Paper Artsy (the litte boy). Thought I played with these sets as I've not touched them for a while. The sentiment couldn't have been more appropriate as I'll be sending this card to my parents in Singapore from the boys! My dad misses them badly but he hasn't long to wait as they will be seeing him in a few months' time.


This is for yesterday's card, Day 58 which is called 'Something Fishy'. You are supposed to create a card with at least a fish image on it. I've got two. Now this card caused me grief yesterday! No matter how much I tried, I just couldn't get it right! Beside, I think it was also extreme tiredness as well. Not surprising, I went to bed immediately after putting the boys to bed too. So today, I woke fresh and ready to go and started the card anew! Here's my effort and I think I much prefer it than yesterday's attempt!

Made use of a journaling sheet from Making Memories spiral journal pad. Stamped fish & waterlily images from Stampendous (bought years ago) and sentiment by Unity stamp. Coloured using Promarkers.

So here are my two cards done! Off to create more stuff! TTFN!

I like the 'miss you' card and the way you used the vintage look of 'post' paper. Very nice.
I also LOVE your fish card. That is very cool. Great job on both!!
