2 in 1!

I am having so much fun now I am stamping again!

I decided to play along with Janet's Corrosive Challenge this week. It was an inspiration challenge.

This is the inspiration picture. I just love the colours in the clothes and hair of these dolls. However, I was having trouble with a layout so I decided to use Janet's Corrosive Challenge 21 which was a sketch challenge.

This got my mojo going again! And here is the result.

The colours are Elegant Eggplant for the base card, Ballet Blue, Pixie Pink, Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink. The image and sentiment are from Crazy for Cupcakes. I really love this card! I hope Janet doesn't mind that I moved the sentiment.

Stay tuned for more creations from a Stamp Camp I helped with in July.

Yes, I'm Still Alive!

Hi everyone!

Yes, I am still alive! No, I didn't catch the swine flu, although we did have 7 days in home quarantine after our return from the USA.

Life has been very hectic since my return, hence I haven't posted until now. In fact, I haven't done much stamping until now.

I have a friend who is having twins in a month or so and I managed to sit down and make her a set of birth announcements last week. However, the batteries in my camera died and I didn't have a spare set so no photo!

I did sit down after dinner tonight and make my own version of the Flower Pot Card that was published in the SCS Weekly Inkling newsletter this week. I'm really happy with it.

The "pot" is Tangerine Tango. The insert is Whisper White on Tangerine Tango. The "flowers" are made using a scallop circle punch with Flower Fusion felt flowers adhered on the top and attached with brads. It really is quite a simple card. This one is on it's way to my sister as a very belated birthday card. I used Curvy Verses for the sentiment inside and Cute & Curly for the tag.
