I Love Masking

It gives such a nice look to a very simple card. This is the card I made for a swap on OzSwap. (Best darn swapping group on the web, if I do say so myself). So if anyone in the groups looking, act surprised. lol

For this, I stamped the big flower from Delight In Life on Very Vanilla, masked it, stamped over it to the left, masked again, then stamped the flower on the right. I then masked that and stamped the French Script over the top in Chocolate Chip. After removing the masks, (the flower stamped onto copy paper, cut out, then attached with repositional adhesive) I coloured using the Pretty In Pink and Summer Sun Inkpads and a blender pen. Next was running the Chocolate Chip inkpad around the edges. And the rest you can see. I hope you like it.

Why Is It??

That on the last day of the holidays, your children decide that 6.30am is a wonderful time to get up and start playing. And why is it that right outside your bedroom door is the perfect place to play?

I. Am. Tired.

Cyber Challenge

Ok, I never thought I'd get into this whole blogging business, I mean, who would want to know about my life right? Well, I've decided to bite the bullet and just go for it. I joined Stampin Up in October and am totally loving it, I joined a wonderful group with Jayne Mercer as my upline. And there are some very talented ladies in this group and although I sometimes feel a little overwhelmed they are a great support and very encouraging.

On Thursday night we had a cybercrop, now I've never done a cybercrop before, I've always been too scared to try but I gave it a go. Jayne put up some wonderful challenges and these are the 2 cards I came up with. First one was a sketch challenge from SCS. The 2nd was a colour combo challenge using the colours More Mustard, Ruby Red and Bravo Burgundy. And I must admit, I love these colours together.
