Two For Fun

It's the nephew's birthday in a couple of weeks and he's reached that awkward age of 23 (come to think of it, aren't they are all awkward ages for men?) when he's gone beyond cute but not reached serious.  So I went for funny.  The clue is in what he's up to these days - he's studying for a degree in motorsport engineering .....
I don't know a student who doesn't play computer games do you?  I've used Lili Of The Valley stamp that I like to call "Boy Racer", papers are leftovers, candy dots are Pebbles Inc and peel-offs from stash.  Image coloured with Copics and ProMarkers.

And then I cried.  I cried because I wanted to use another couple of sheets of Basic Grey "Origins" and the black floral sheet is just so beautiful and you only get two sheets in a pad and it hurrrrrrrrrrrrt so much!  Sob! Anyhoo, this card sort of evolved around the stamp really, it's High Hopes "Roasting Marshmallows" and I want to send it to a very kind and supportive blogging buddy who has more faith in me than I do in myself.
Text on the front says "A friend doesn't mind if you're a bit odd" and inside simply says "Thank you for not minding".

Two absolutely fab cards. Think I might work on non fattening candy for easter, or even mothers day. I'm sure your nephew will love this card and your friend too they are both delish. I love seeing your cards but I just end up adding more and more stamps and papers and everything but especially the stamps to my ever growing wish list.Will it ever get any smaller probably not. Thanks for sharing Julye

Gorgeous cards Squirrel. I love both images and the papers are lush.
I have that problem with BG pads - 2 sheets of each pattern is not enough ... solve the problem by buying 3 or 4 pads LOL!! (but not at the mo of course!!)
