Moving On Identically......

This first moving on cards were a request from my husband.  I had to make two identical Thank You cards for the two typists in the police station he was leaving.  The two of them are fiercely competitive when it comes to baking and Ali took great delight in playing one off against the other to ensure a constant supply of tablet, lemon drizzle cake and millionaires shortbread!!!!  They were both excellent bakers so I wasn't complaining when he took some of the goodies home with him, yum, yum.

I used this LOTV image for the first time - Fairies, Bouquet and coloured it with - yup you guessed it, Promarkers.  I lightly dusted the background with pastel blue glimmer chalk which I think is a lovely way to ground the image without overpowering it.  The DP is a sheet I got in a mixed sale pack from Topaz Crafts.  I like getting papers in this way as it means I get papers I wouldn't dream of looking at or purchasing and also it's a cheap way of buying, I think this was 50 papers for £6.

Moving on version 2 - I was asked to make 7 identical sympathy cards, again by my husband.  An uncle of my his had passed away and he wanted to give the brothers, sisters, children and wife matching cards.  I made pink versions for the women and blue for the males.

 I really must get another stamp suitable for sympathy cards as I feel I have overused this particular one, although it is nice.

The final Moving on is the little New Home cards I made for our change of address.  I cut the card shape using my cricut (can't recall the cart at the moment but if anyone wants to know just ask and I'll have a look).  The sentiment is a LOTV one and coloured with Whispers Pens for a change.  The black ribbon is from my stash and acts as a closer to the card.

The inside of the card has a pink matt and the address details printed onto super smooth paper from C&C, a lovely thick paper.

So - all identically moving on in one way or another .........

Until next time, Nicola xxx
