These are two cards which I made recently.

The first uses the Brilliant blue designer prints range of double sided paper along with some bashful blue cardstock. I've also used 'Frames with a Flourish' and the level 1 set 'For a Friend' for the centre piece. Some 'dazzling diamonds' finishes the card of nicely I think just around the little cloud bubble! This card was made using a sketch from Splitcoaststampers.

The second card is a gorgeously simply card using some 'certainly celery DSP and wide ribbon', Regal rose cardstock and ink, 'The Garden whimsy' stamp set and Dazzling Diamonds and Rhinestone brads.

Subscriber Only Blog candy...

One of the benefits of subscribing to my monthly newsletter is the offer of subscriber only give aways and being the first to know what's going on in my world and with Stampin' Up! This month's offer is a sample of In-Colour tags made by me using the gorgeous set 'Tagger's dozen' and our beautiful tag punches and co-ordinating double stitched ribbon.

If you would please email me with your contact/ mailing details Robyn I'll pop these into the post for you this week.

Happy 60th Birthday to my Dad!

I made this card for my dad this week as it was his birthday on Thursday. The big 60! Unfortunately we were all struck down with colds and were in less than partying moods. But we still took him out for dinner and had yummy cake.
I have used: Chocolate chip, Kraft and old olive and Glossy cardstock
Old olive, always artichoke and chocolate chip markers
'weathered' background, 'lovely as a tree' and 'circle of friendship' stamp sets
designer label, 1" circle and 1 1/4" circle punches
and my new 'crop-o-dile' to create the dry embossed circles.
Thanks for looking.

I will be off line for a couple of days but while I'm gone I thought I would show a piccy my hubby took last month of my beautiful daughter and I at 'our' craft area!
I was working on some swap cards and she was working on whatever she could get her hands on. LOL! Though seriously, she loves craft so we try to do something 'messy' every couple of days at least.

I should be back on track by Saturday! Thanks everyone!

Just a quick congrats...

To the recipient of the pink baby card in my post just down there. After only 12 minutes in hospital and one push, a healthy baby girl was delivered to our friends and neighbours this morning! ( OK, it must have been hard still work but she laboured at home for about four hours before things really started happening!)
Super congratulations guys. We can't wait to see your new baby girl!

A Quick Love Note...

This gorgeous little love note took very little time to make beacause they come already scored with cute little envies to match from stampin' up! They are also a part of this month's promotion so make sure you check in later today for all the details! Super cute and great to have some on hand for those times when you just want to send someone a 'little love'.
