Happy 50th Rick!!

This is a card I made for my elder brother's birthday earlier in the year-all I can say is it's a good job he has a sense of humour....

Hi there!! Here's my second go at a challenge. Another Anya stamp that I couldn't resist!! I think I'm becoming hooked on these little lovelies!!

For this card I've used the following items from Stampin Up- textured cardstock and stitched grosgrain ribbon in Bashful blue, stamp set oval all and large oval and scalloped oval punches. Spotted and striped papers are from my stash and fluff on earmuffs and scarf is flowersoft.

Ta ta!!

i thoroughly enjoyed making this card-largely because I was wishing it was me in that gorgeous bubble bath!! I've used a gorgeous new stamp set that I'm unable to name or I'll get a slapped wrist! but I'm sure those of you who are familiar with the company that produces these gorgeous stamps will know who they're from!! I't great to have some 'ME TIME'

Products used are Stampin Up! designer series papers in rose red plus matching ribbon as well as a little bit of mirror card and coloured in with my PROfessional MARKERS.

Hope you like, Stacey x

Such a hard one for my first challenge!! It took me so long to put this card together I was losing the will to live. I really struggled with it but finally came up with this. The challenge was that I had four stampin up colour to choose from and I needed to use at least three. I mnaged to use all four Cameo coral, Tempting turquoise, summer sun and Real red.

Ta ta!! x


Just a quick posting as I've been unable to blog for a while due to pc probs. I'm hoping all is well now thanks to Mr Norton anti-virus!!

After the crazy snow from yesterday we have the day off!

I need it too after breaking down in the turn right lane of a busy dual cariageway last night. Amidst much horn blowing and rude gestures from other drivers we finally got help from a lovely old school pal of mine who came charging to our rescue in his four wheel drive!

Unfortunately my little car is still protesting about the cold weather and is refusing to move so it's off to the garage with her tomorrow first thing! She'll probably have to be towed :( I'm assured it's nothing major but time will tell.

In the meantime................being stuck indoors with lots of yummy crafting goodies has meant I've finally tried my hand at an easel card using what I first thought was the SU set 'a rose is a rose'. I later realised it isn't that set but is a gorgeous 2step rose .

I've used whisper white, certainly celery, rose red and regal rose cardstock along with pretty in pink and rose red inks. Hope you like! xx

Hi all this is just a quick note to wish you a happy new year. I've had a lovely few days off which have given me a little crafting time. Had a play with some so saffron designer paper and this is what I came up with after seeing a similar item on splitcoast. Toodles!! x
