21st birthday

I made this card recently using Island Indigo card and DSP from the Blooms and Bliss pack (I had to buy a second pack of this paper as I was afraid to use it all up!) I cut the 21 using the Large Numbers Framelits and then painted over them with the clear Wink of Stella brush to make them glitter.  most of the flowers were made with the Petite Petals stamps and matching punch, although the larger flower was made with a retired stamp and punch.  The leaves were die cut from Mint Macaron card using the leaves from Botanical Builder Framelits set. I am entering this card in the Simon Says challenge (Anything goes), Allsorts (Let's celebrate) and Die cutting divas (Anything goes)

Moon Baby

The first stamp set I ordered from the new Spring Summer catalogue was 'Moon Baby' and I have made quite a few cards with it already.  This is one of the ones we made at the January class and as I had got the 'Any Occasion' set from Sale-a-bration we used it for the sentiment.  The image was coloured using the new watercolour pencils and the Aqua painters. I painted over the moon and stars with the Wink of Stella brush to make them shimmery - although it doesn't show up all that well in the photo. I am entering it in the Simon Says challenge this week as it is 'Anything Goes.'

Today is the start of this year's Sale-A-Bration - when you can choose a free product from the SAB catalogue every time you spend a total of £45 between now and the end of March. The new Spring/Summer catalogue also goes live today.  If you would like a FREE copy of both catalogues please get in contact with me and I can post them out. 
The provisional dates for Friday morning classes for the first half of this year are:  6th January,  3rd February,  3rd March,  7th April,  5th May, 2nd June.  I intend to put through a group order after each of these classes so P&P charges will only cost £1 each.
