Hey there....I hope you're having a great week so far!

I have a couple of cards in the current issue of Australian Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft magazine which feature the most gorgeous Stamp It Stamp......Time in Paris.....

aaaaah I hope to have just that one day lol.


Isn't it beautiful!

Now that the cards are published I look forward to pulling out this stamp and playing with it again and again:-)

Here are my cards....

I had a fun play last night with the latest challenges from The Shabby Tea Room and Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try...

Photo inspiration _62















The complete challenge for the Shabby Tea Room was to make a monochromatic card so that 's exactly what I did, using Jen's sketch. When it comes to picking one colour to go mono with I couldn't go past my beloved tealy/aqua lol....

Hey there...hope you've had a great day!

I have a nephew turning 11 tomorrow (avert your eyes now Vyc!) so what better excuse than that to play with a new digi image from  Mo Manning and my Boy Basics Rock On set from Papertrey Ink.

Combining the two, I came up with this birthday card....
