First time for everything...

Hello everyone! Hope your week is going well. I finally managed to find some time the other week to make two cards - both for my younger sister who is in the USA. My older sister is out there at the moment to visit so it forced me to get my act together and get crafty! 

I didn't know where to start as I hadn't made a card in so long but I did my usual trick and flicked through my papers to see what I was drawn too. I really liked the pink and orange together and thought the blue and green worked well too. 

My first 'auntie' card! As I hadn't made a card in months, I thought I did pretty well considering I made both in just under and hour and a half (this one I made whilst looking after my little baba too - he was sat in his bouncer watching me work then fell asleep - card making obviously isn't for him!)

Apologies for the rubbish picture, I didn't have time to take a decent one as my sister had to pack them so these are courtesy of my phone! I think I prefer the second one, I really do like those colours together - calm and peaceful....very unlike me at the moment! That hippo is too cute :)

 Those that know me love a bit of glitter, gotta get it in there somewhere! It is usually the lettering as I like it to grab people's attention.

What do you think?
