Beautiful Day to say Thank you

It’s that time I enjoy, sending cards to my customers.  This time I used a new Stamp Set from the Spring/Summer Catalogue called Beautiful Day to say ‘thank you’. As the butterfly is large and clean, I chose to stick with just the outline and used the Watercolor Wash for a background. My colour palette

Oh, Hello Friend

I haven’t seen a friend for a while so wanted them to know that I was thinking of them. As this friend is a BIG fan of pink (the complete opposite of me!), I entered a strange pink-tastic world. I used the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set and Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies Bundle for the

She’s popped a few pictures of her decorating progress on Facebook so I’ve taken my inspiration from her pink feature wall. I stamped a background of Melon Mambo and Flirty Flamingo along with Rich Razzleberry accents.  The stamp

Swirly Bird for a Sister-in-Law

It was my Sister-in-Law’s Birthday last week.  As it had been a while since I’d used the fabulous Swirly Bird Stamp Set, I reached for it to make this card. The design is a suggested color combination of Berry Burst, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party, with a touch of silver too. One of my ‘go
