Year After Year - Forgotten Stamps.....

Would you believe it? I got this stamp set in my Starter kit last November!!!! It was still unmounted and pushed to the back of the pile, so I only had time to cut and mount one, so I choose the cute little ellie phant.....Hee!

I needed a couple of new baby cards to get posted off, so these are what I came up with.
This one I stamped once on the whisper white oval and again on Certainly Celery designer paper. I used the curvy verses (which was another one I had to mount quickley as I haven't had to make many baby cards!!) for the sentiment. I added a couple of flowers from the pretties kit before putting it all together.
For this one I coloured in using my SU Markers in Bashful Blue and Close to Cocoa. I do like the ovals but they are a bit hard to line up for some reason, may be its too EARLY! I used a slim cuttlebugg embossing folder down the edge and cut it away, it looks lovely on the inside as the edge of the folder leaves a straight line.

I added a couple of black eyelets for the wheels, another item I forget to use!

Thanks for looking,
Jenny:-)

Hi Jenny
Is that Sid (puppy) getting you up?? As for the cards - I love the spotty one, not that I like green much Ha! ha! (sorry - private joke)I had to look up the set (Year after Year) you did great with it. It's very exciting to look on your blog every day now. I have 6 cards to finish at the moment and then I'm going to try to do at least 2/3 cards a week with you. I need the incentive to get back into real card making again. Keep blogging
