Roses are Blue

Hi everyone.Forgive me, but it has been awhile. My husband and I went away to Melbourne for the weekend last week and it has taken quite awhile to get back into the swing of things since then. We went without children, which is so rare and I haven't been to Melbourne since I was a kid.( All those many years ago.)
Now the card I made here was a thank you card for a Workshop not so long ago and I thought the colours used on a rose were very different.
See what you think.

The stamps used are A Rose is A Rose and Best Yet.Cardstock used was Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White. I also used the scalloped oval punch with the large oval punch that comes from the new Mini Catalogue.
Thanks for looking.

Magnolia Down Under Challenge No:19

Winter is Here

Well I'm excited to enter into my very first challenge and I chose to use my first Tilda stamp. So I wanted to play along in the Magnolia Down Under Challenges.
I know my card has more of a Christmas feel to it, but in most places that is when it's the coldest time of year.

Some of the items used on the card are from SU and the DS paper is from Cloud 9. I added snowflakes to add that Winter feeling.

Please let me know out there what you all thought and have a great day.

Best Wishes

I love to give away my cards to friends and relatives and this one went all the way to the U.K.
I had the chance to use the new stamp set from the new Spring Mini Catalogue called Oval All which is $29.95. It's made to go with the new Scalloped Oval Punch which you'll see in the Mini Catalogue also. You can have a look online just by clicking on the sidebar or email me if you wish to have your own copy.
I can't forget to mention the ever so popular A rose is a rose stamp set. It comes up great in any colour and here it was used in Ruby Red and Pretty in Pink.
Stamps:A Rose is A Rose, Oval All
Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss,Ruby Red, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White

Flower in a Pot Card

I thought I would have a go at something I've never done before and went onto to see what I could make for my neighbours girl for her 9th Birthday and this what I came up with.
I think this is great fun for a young girl and normally you would pay heaven and earth for something like this in the shops.

Following the tutorial was very easy and just made it to be colourful and fun.


Stamps:Petal Pizzazz and Great Friend

Cardstock:Basic black,Whisper White

DSP: So Saffron

Ink: Ruby Red, Pumkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise,Kiwi Kiss & Metalic Lilac (my own)
