Please Welcome Susie

Hi how is everyone today? A few weeks ago we asked the lovely and very talented Susie to join us as a guest designer and luckily for us she said yes!! So it's bye from me (Clare) and a huge hello to Susie and here is what she has to say......

Contrary to many crafters I know, I LOVE making boys' cards! My style is fairly clean and simple, definitely un-fussy and this, I think, suits male cards rather well.
So, for these cards, made for twins, I have used Special Editions Stamps Sid the Robot by Clare Brown. He has been coloured with Promarkers and Stickles - in my experience, boys like a little bit of bling too!
I have used scraps of paper from various Few of My Favourite Things Kits, all pieced together to make a larger background. A strip of irridescent mesh (from AFew of My Favourite Things Kit) and ribbon from my stash has been added, which provides a little texture (and a bit more bling).
So, with the same character and ingredients, I have made two cards which are the same, but different!! Do you have a favourite?
Now, just a wee reminder that your fabulous creations can be added to the Sarah Hurley challenge and the current theme is Celebrations!!

Quick ingredients list:

Papers and irridescent mesh - A Few of My Favourite Things Kits
Age and Name - Clearly Besotted Basic Alphabet and Basic Numbers

Happy crafting, folks!
