A trio of cards!

Good evening – popping in to share three little cards I whipped up to send to three special friends!  If you squint you can just make out some groovy matching envelopes made using my newest gadget – the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board – LOVE!  The cards are dinky so I didn’t have any envelopes to go with them – what a cool and clever thing it is!!Design a tree

I used one of the new stamp sets from Clearly Besotted – Design A Tree with some patterned paper from Papertrey Ink.  I am loving the new Avery Elle pigment inks too – love how they clean off the stamps so well too!!

Well, it’s WAY past my bed time now – thanks for stopping by xxx.


A Valentine for Hubby!

This year is the first year since we met in 1991 that my husband and I have not been together for Valentines Day!!  We don’t always do anything particularly extravagant or indulgent (although sometimes we do!!) but we are ALWAYS together!  So where is he I hear you ask?  Well, he’s in Andorra skiing!!  I know – alright for some eh?  Anyhoo, in his absence I have made him a wee card for his return this afternoon.  We are MASSIVE Apple junkies in this house and there are quite a few iPhone-style dies and stamp sets appearing at the moment. I fell in love with the MFT Cute Cameras 2 die set so have used the little iPhone die to create this simple card.  Chris HAS to have everything in black (cars, iPads, iPhones etc) whereas mine are all white!!  The sentiment is from Post It: Love from Clearly Besotted – fits well doesn’t it?!

i heart u

Right, while the cats been away – the mouse has been playing with all her new stamps and dies so operation “tidy up before Chris gets home and realises I’ve done virtually no housework for a week” has to start!!

Thanks for dropping by xxx
