Thinking of You

Good evening all, hope you are all having a good day.  I went for a little walk today outside down by the marina. Making the most of the outdoors just now before it gets too hot. Anyway, enough of me, what about my cards? Well, today i have two cards to show you.  Both cards have been made using stamps and sentiments from the fab candy i won recently from the lovely Naomi.  The first one is a practice card, a CAS sympathy card using Prima Marketing Clear Stamps for the image and a Paper and Such sentiment.  The second card is a Paper and Such 'Better Poppies' clear stamp.  I stamped the image straight onto the card, then stamped another image onto cardstock, coloured it with Tim Holtz distress inks ( i cant live without these inks) and then paper pieced them.  The sentiment is also from the same Better Poppies set.  The border was made using an EK Success border punch and the edges were also distressed.  The ribbon was from my stash. What do you think?
