Embrace Life

A couple of weeks ago I did a sketch Challenge and showed you. This is a second card I made using Makeesha's sketch. I have used Embrace life. I love colouring this set. I have used Regal Rose and Rose Red. Wow posting 2 cards in one day... now I had better go and make some more cards as I have done nothing since getting back from Manjimup. I havent even unpacked my stamps etc that I took. What a lazy week for the end of the holidays.

Case it Saturday

I just realised that I havent posted on my blog for 2 weeks so thought I would show you a card I made while away in Manjimup last weekend. This card is a case from SCS by One Happy Stamper She made her card using Black and Almost Ametheyst and I changed it to Bashful blue and Night of Navy. The stamp set is Infinite Goodness which is a level 2 hostess set. I have been wanting to use that set for ages but hadnt gotten around to it. Now I have and am very happy with my case. I posted it on one of the groups I am on as a Case it Saturday.

I started making this calendar a few months ago now and finally with encouragement from my niece I finished it the other day. I have used the designer paper Apple Cider and the stamp set True friend from the Spring Mini along with a couple of other sets. Here are a few months and the front cover. The calendar is from Amuse. I finally used my Bind it All that I have had for ages and it is so easy to use. I must try a few other things with it now.

This is the card I made with the sale-a-bration set, Congrats. I used the Nursery Necessities set to go with it. I made a bit of a mess putting the dazzling diamonds on but otherwise its ok.
Now I will have to spend some money on new SU stuff so I can get the other 2 SAB sets.

Hi and Happy New Year to you all.
Last night I decided it was about time I made some samples with the 2 Sale-a-bration sets I have. I made 3 cards with Botanical Blooms so I thought I would show them to you.
The first 2 are using the same dimensions but just put together differently. I used a sketch challenge for the first one and have used Elegant Eggplant and Always Artichoke.

this one I cased from SCS made by Melbarkwith. I tried to add a link but it doesnt seem to want to work for me.
