A Quick Catch-Up

Now I’ve started to catch up with myself after the preparations for last weekend, so I’ll show you one or two of the cards I’ve been doing recently.

The first is a variation of the card layout I used for the quick and simple DCM dare. I love this layout and it works well for almost all occasions, in this case a 21st birthday.

All the papers used are from the Crate ‘Birdie’ collection.

For the second card I used my new Sizzix Cup Cake die for the first time…..don’t you think it’s cute. I can see this die getting lots of use in the future!

The papers on this one are Blonde Moments ‘Sugar Dumpling’

Another card I was asked to make was a real challenge. It was for a Partick Thistle supporter so it had to be something in their colours.

Basic Grey ‘Color Me Silly’ came up trumps with the perfect papers for this one.

The last card is a sympathy card that I made for my brothers family when my Sister in Law lost her mum a few weeks ago.

I kept it very simple with a cross stamped in Lavender and Green using my tapestry stamps.

I’ve had a little time for a quick bit of blog hopping again this morning and came across the new Spiral Whisper blog. It’s looking like it’s going to be a great place to visit in the future and at the moment they are running a competition to give names to two of the rubber stamps in their new family. One is a cute little ballerina and the other is a real cool dude. Why not pop over and have a look.

These cardsa re all beautiful - well beautiful may not be the right word for the football one - clever, or cute might be better - anyway, they are all great and they are all so different - hard to believe the same person made them all - just shows how clever you are Sue!
