Make any purchase from my store over £25 and I will send you a new 2016/2017 Catalogue when they are released.

 I've been quiet the last few days as it was my Birthday yesterday - woohoo 21 again!  Clever old hubby bought me a Stampin' Up! Big Shot and some wonderful toys to go with it.  The Botanical Blooms stamp set and framelits which come as a bundle and some Embossing folders.  As you can imagine - most of yesterday was taken up with playing with my new toys.  And here are some of the results.

My first card is for the SUO Challenge this week which is looking for Congratulations cards.  I've used the Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron and Whisper White card stock and inks for this card.  A touch of Wink of Stella on the words and Dazzling Diamonds on the flowers to make this card sparkle.  The sentiments come from the Saleabration Perfect Pairings set. You'll find the challenge here 

Just a quick little tip - when using card stock as layers I never want to waste all that card that you can't see so I either punch or now use the Big Shot to make some embellishments to save for later.  Once the card is turned over and layered you can't see the parts I've cut out.

I think my favourite thing of all of the toys is that wonderful fern like leaf.  Its so delicate and pretty.  I think its scheduled to go on everything for the time being!

The sentiment comes from the new Thankful Thoughts set - one that is going to be a firm favourite I can see. 10 great thank you's to choose from.  Oh, and look, a fern!  This also uses one of the new Embossing folders out in the new catalogue.

This colour way uses Whisper White and Watermelon Wonder card stock again with a touch of Mint Macaron ink and ribbon with a stamp from one of the new stamp sets Thankful Thoughts.  Oh look - that fern again!
