Carte Postal

I've been very quiet on here for a while but I have been busy, collecting together cards for sale for this years charity for a group I belong to in our village. This years charity is for the new cancer unit at our local hospital, something close to my heart as this year we lost a close family member to cancer and he was unable to have treatment at our local hospital and had to travel twenty miles to another town, thanks to our local hospice and the wonderful Macmillan nurses he was able to spend his last weeks at home but everything would have been so much better if the new unit had been open.  The last time I sold cards for a charity I managed to sell over a hundred cards so I am hoping to do the same this time. While I love making cards I hate the nitty gritty things like putting in inserts and finding envelopes and cello bags etc, seemed to take me for ever to do that.

Anyhow took time for a play today and made a couple of cards for challenges, this one is for
Make My Monday - mail art

Inkylicious stamp and papers from the wallflower collection.
My second card is for

Try It On Tuesday - Summer colours

I seem to be having a bit of thing for orange at the moment, not a colour I normally use much and I don't like orange flowers in my garden either! however I had fun making the background for this card with Stampin Up gorgeous grunge stamps, the main flower is a Hero arts
