Happy Everything ...


Hi everyone

Today's the first day this week when I haven't got anything planned so I thought I'd get out my craft bits & pieces and see what I came up with. I just grabbed the two-step bird punch, the Vintage Vogue stamp set & some lovely DP (Elegant Soiree - wouldn't you just know it!) and settled down for an afternoon crafting. Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of having a dedicated craft room, so it's a bit of a faff having to keep going into my cupboards for all my bits & pieces (and even more of a faff putting it all back again)!

Anyway, I'm quite pleased today with my card once I'd finished it. In fact, I'm beginning to think it could do for either sex (male cards are always difficult I think) ... maybe it's the colours that make it suitable (although I don't know quite how the sparkling bits will be accepted)!

Bye 'till next time.

Vintage Vogue meets Growing Green ...

Hi everyone,

It's my friend's birthday next week, so I thought I'd get her card made nice and early ... she's on holiday at the moment, cruising in the Antarctic, so there's no chance of her having a sneek peek of her card. Having said that, I have had a few emails from her giving me a brief outline of her encounters with the penguins & icebergs ... but I'm sure she'll be too busy enjoying her adventure ...

I love the Vintage Vogue stamp set and have used this together with the Growing Green stamp set, finishing off with the Jewelry Tag punch and co-ordinating Tiny Tag stamp set! I just love the Tiny Tag stamp set and co-ordinating punch and with a little linen thread, ties it all up nicely don't you think?

If you like this card, why not treat yourself to the Vintage Vogue stamp set (£22.95), Tiny Tag stamp set (£21.95) and Jewelry Tag Medium Punch (£9.75). Total cost would be: £54.65 which entitles you to a FREE sale-a-bration stamp set of your choice.

You're really going to use these stamp sets until they're worn out ... they are just so nice! And how about choosing the Bliss stamp set as your FREE set - it's absolutely gorgeous and together with the Vintage Vogue, will give you a variety of images to create a multitude of projects all with that lovely vintage theme!

Of course, you could choose any of the gorgeous FOUR free stamp sets available (click here for further info).

See you later!
