1 Card, Couple Promarker Colourings and Shimelles September 4x6 Photo Love

Hi peeps, A bit of a long post from me today.

First up I went to Stamp N Crafts Stampin' Up Event last Sunday where I had a go with at a Card make and take and this is my Card, It was so simple to make and was a perfect make as it was my MIL's Birthday that weekend so I gave it to her.
The flowers were made using two stamps. The Stems one stamp which I used a green ink and then the leaves were on another stamp and I used a blue Ink. Sorry not sure the names of the stamps and ink colours I'm afraid.

I then used a pricking tool to create some mini holes in each of the corners and a stamp with the saying Happy Birthday.
Done some more Colouring with my Stamps and Promarkers. This Stamp is Sweet Pea's Ching Chou Kuik Stamp - Nocturnal Spirit. I used the Following Colours: Terracotta, Pine, Gold, Grass, Powder Blue, Blush, Dusky Pink and Blender Pen.
And here is Sweet Pea's Ching Chou Kuik Stamp - Red Hearts, Which I coloured using: Buttercup, Gold, Pastel Yellow, Sky Blue, Powder Blue, Leaf Green, Magenta, Yellow and Blender Pen.
Last up is my attempt at Shimelle's September 4x6 Photo Love
For this layout I used Echo Park's Little Boy and the photos were taken on our Visit to Nothe Fort in the Summer Holidays.
I was really brave and tried machine stitching on my Layout and have to say I love it, not sure why it has taken this long for me to have a go and why I was so nervous to have a go lol.
I used letter stickers for the title and date.
I machine stitched the top of the layout and the pocket.
I added a journalling tag in a pocket I made using the the paper behind the title.
Here's the tag
These are the big tags from the main pocket. The Back and front of one tag
And Back and Front of second Tag
That's it for the moment. Thank you for popping by.
