Hello again to my Pan Pastels!

Evening all, hope you had a good day, and managed to fit a sneaky bit of crafting in......
I managed to get 5 cards done by about 3 pm, so very pleased about that. Then my gorgeous daughter-in-law, Emma came over for tea with baby Eva.  Everything is put on hold for Eva, but I'd much rather be cuddling her, that crafting ;-)



 Anyway, just a short post tonight to show a couple of todays makes, both very similar but slightly different backgrounds.
I've kept these very, very simple, without even a sentiment, I really don't think they need anything else....what do you think??






Both backgrounds made with Pan Pastels, stamps from Lavinia Stamps and Stamp-it. I've matted onto black then white linen cardstock from 
(Watch out for a special offer coming from Papermill in a day or so!)





Well, that's it for tonight folks....I'll be back on Thursday with details of the Papermill special offer.
Bye for now,
Barbara
