Thank You Card Set

Having another play with my Blendabilities, I decided to make a set of 4" x 4" cards.


Here's a close up


Awww how pretty are they!

So I got to use up some more of my retired SU card stock - LOL, yes I have a lot of it.

I have also used Jaded Blossom Goody Bag Die and Spring Dies 2.

Thanks cards & tags

I thought I'd show you the Thanks card and gift tag that I send out with my prize for the winner of my Challenges at Soul Scrappers.


I made a heap of them up at once using my reitred Stampin Up DSP.
I also used every embossing folder I had to give each one a different textured card front.

I think they turned out great.

CC42 Fancy Fold cards

Here's my entry into the latest Card Challenge over at Soul Scrappers.

This time we are making a Fancy Fold card - one a Birthday and the other for any occasion.
(Instructions given to make Fancy Fold Card base.)

The first one I made as per the instructions as in it is a normal Rectangle card - instructions are USA so not the same as our sizing, so I adjusted accordingly.

This is my "other occasion" card - Enjoy Life.

The stamps are from the Darkroom Door set Enjoy Life.
I love it - a sort of reflection card if you like.

The second card is a Heart Fancy Fold card, LOL, also not a birthday card, but an Anniversary card for my hubby next month!


Love them both and they are really easy to make - why not give them a try yourself!

Until next time, Happy Crafting....YCB

GoT Ghost card

Here's a card I made using the Ghost cutting file from the Game of Thrones Blog Hop that SVG Cutting Files had last year. These files can not be bought or shared, they are earned by joining in on the hops and I must say, they are worth it. I do look forward each month to see what we will be hopping for and I am never disappointed!


Awwww how cute is he!

I must admit that I haven't seen the show, but I do love how he has turned out.

SC91 Sisters

Here's my entry into the latest Sketch Challenge over at Soul Scrappers.

This is the sketch we are using , it was found on Pinterest at Scrapbook.com/Beggahuna's Gallery.



Here's my layout....



Wow I hear you say - look at all those flowers!!!!! So not like me, but isn't it gorgeous!
I will admit that when I looked at the sketch I really thought it is soooooo not me or my style.
I do love how it has come out and will get a frame to give it to my mum as it is her and 2 of her sisters.

ABC6 Fun

Here's my entry into the latest ABC Challenge over at Soul Scrappers.

We are up to "F" so our choice of word starts with F and the embellishment is  Flair Button.

My word is "Fun", and my flair button says "Hello".


My friend walked the 5k's with me and we caught up on some gossip - as you do!

How cute is the SVG Cutting File Bird!

Thank You card

Here's a set of Thank You cards I made recently.

I made 3 of the same card as it's great to have them handy and ready to write in when needed.


I do have to say that when I looked at this paper I wasn't that keen to use it,
Keeping an open mind and sticking to the white and Primrose Petal colours, I have to say it looks great.

Until next time, Happy Crafting....YCB
