Happiness Always Recess Window

As I started to clean up my craft room today I found this card 1/2 made and needing some finishing touches! I thought it was about time I made a card and updated my blog!!! And even better if I saved some time as well!!! All I had to do was stamp and toll the flower, add the ribbon, and a saying to the corner and it was done! I love it when its that quick!!! He he he!
These cards are easy to make once you have made one and very look very effective! I made some a while back when I gave a wow presentation at regionals last year if you want to see them here. And if you want to make one yourself there is a great tutorial here!

A couple of cards and a free pass to UStamp!

I haven't had any time to create anything new this week so far but I thought I would show you a couple of cards I made last week for my stamp club to recreate. The first is a card that was a lot of fun to make using the cracked glass technique. And the 2nd is an easel card that I had been meaning to try! Hope you like them! I am so excited I just received my pre order yesterday so I hope to have a play over the next few days! Hopefully it will spark my mojo because it need a little help this week!lol! I also have another free pass to give away for this next round of UStamp which will start very soon so if you haven't got round to signing up yet or haven't had the money but would love a free pass, just leave me a comment under this post and I will draw a winner tomorrow night! See you then!

2 Challenges in one!

It's been a busy week here but I did manage to do a couple of challenges in one card! I had a list of challenges to do this week but no time to get them done:-( I have been meaning to do a curtain call colour challenge for a while so that was a must and I haven't done one of Keesh's challenges in ages and this weeks one is a sketch so I put the 2 together! It came together quickly because I had the layout and the colours! I should do that more often, it saves thinking what to do!!lol! If you have the time check all the entries or have a go yourself!
Stamps: Flower fancy
Card: real red, bashful blue and whisper white
Ink: real red and certainly celery
Accessories: Double stiched blashful blue ribbon, 1/4" blashful blue grossgrain, and real red brads and a 1/2 pearl
