Garden Whimsey

I made this birthday for a friend who loves tulips!Her favourite colour is duck egg blue but you don't get blue tulips so I went for "Pretty in Pink"!Again I have made an easel card but only because I have never made this type of card for my friend before, so I hope she will be impressed!!!I promise my next card will not be an easel card.We go on holiday on Tuesday and I have three birthday cards and a wedding card to make on top of all the packing and cleaning.I will be busy!!!!

Something sweet

I made this birthday card for my daughter's friend who is a real sweet addict!The stamp set "Something Sweet" was a perfect choice for the card.I choose the DSP from last years mini catalogue as it went well with the Skittle sweets.I warned my daughter to tell her friend that the card and sweets had to last at least a week!!!!The 1&3/4" punch fits really well with the "Sweet Treat Cups".

Greenhouse Garden

I made this card using a tutorial from the amazing Jenny Moores,which you can visit at Stampin Moments.It is a bookmark card using my favourite colours-Pretty in Pink and Almost Amethyst(which I will be sorry to see go as it is one of the retiring colours).It is the first time I have used this stamp set(Greenhouse Garden)and it is now officially my new favourite set!You can detach the bookmark as I have used the perforator tool in the Cutter Kit which you can find on page 90.The great thing about this card that even when you have detached the book mark you still have a cute little card!

True Friend

I really enjoy doing the challenge from Mojo Monday.This is the card I made this week using their sketch.The DSP is from the current mini catalogue .I actually made this card with a friend in mind whose birthday is later this month, her favourite colour is Taken with Teal(it really is not like me to be so organized).The stamp set is from Stampin Up and is called True Friend.I layered inside the card with white card and punched along the bottom usingthe Eyelet Border punch.

Bloomin with Beauty

This is one of those cards which is suitable for any occassion.I have used the Bloomin with Beauty stamp set from Stampin up. The colour scheme is again using Pale Plum. Although you cannot see it in the photograph I have "glazed" the pot using Crystal Effects, just to give it a little texture!
