Just another quick post... Alex recently hosted her second swap over on ILWS. This swap was for a gift card holder and we had to make 8 cards. My colour combo is whisper white, so saffron and pumpkin pie (been using these colours a bit too much recently!) The bird is from the fun and fast notes set with a sentiment from the circle of friendship set. The pumpkin pie ribbon and a silver brad from the hodgepodge set finishes it off xx

Little forest friends

Hi! Hope you're having a great week and enjoying the sunshine (hope the weather has been good where you are) We've been feeding a family of hedgehogs, complete with babies (aahhh!!) for the last couple of months, and I've had lots of advice from a lovely lady that runs a hospital for Hedgehogs! She takes in Hedgehogs from all over Leicestershire on a voluntary basis, isn't that fab! I wanted to make a card to say thank you. The stamp set is the gorgeous little forest friends set from My Cute Stamps. I'm planning to make a batch of similar cards for her to sell at an upcoming fundrasing day. The DSP I've used is Doodlebug with a bit of October Afternoon with the SU! colours cameo coral and choc chip. The ribbon is SU!'s regal rose grosgrain and the button is from the SU! mini catalogue tied with some linen thread. Have a fab day, it's nearly the weekend! Hooray! xxx

September already!

...Where did August go?! Hello and I hope you had a great weekend. I have a quick card to share made with the pocket silhouettes (so glad this made the new SU! catalogue!) It's such a fab stamp set to use. My colours are cameo coral, night of navy, whisper white, and ruby red. The button is from the mini SU catalogue along with some non SU! pale pink stitched ribbon. The linen thread used on the button has been coloured with a marker. I've tried to create the look of a button with the Martha Stewart butterfly punch by layering the button several times and then adding some diamond glaze, this doesn't show up with my rubbish photography though! Hope you have a super week and thanks so much for visiting! xx
