Hello girls and boys (Chris, wink wink!!) I ve got a two cards to post and also I want to let you know that I m offering free postage on every order till Sunday 27 april 2008 at 10pm( this excludes any club offers like stampers 10). Most of you will get paid (or if you re lucky enough you DH will get paid so he will agree to treat you lol)so I rekon you will want to treat yourself a little and I m making it better by giving you free postage no matter how large or small your order is. If you dont have a copy of the catalogue you can view the online one here, choose the gorgeousness that you think deserves to come and live with you and then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do the rest.
Ok then, my first card is the one where I ve used the chalks to higlight my main image and I ve had so many lovely responses from it, I m glad you liked it, I think chalk get a bit overlooked so hopefully you ll have a go at using them more.
Ok so I ve usedbashful blue cardbase, stamped the En francaise background from SU onto Whisper White with Cert. Celery, a Pumpkin Pie layer of cardstock was embossed with the textile CB embossing folder, it was then sponged with more Pumpkin Pie ink, Bashful blue taffeta ribbon, and Old Olive was punched with the Threading Water punch from Fiskars, the oval was cut with the Nestabilities die and the scallop was made using the same scallop punch that I ve used for the border as I havent bought the scalloped nesties cos I ve figured i could only use my scallop scissors or like shown here the border punch, so I saved a few pennies didnt I?lol
Next is that naughty frog that just didn twant to spin for me, it really showed be up didnt he? Is a good job I really like him otherwise I could have done him some harm with a pair of sharp scissors.
Cutie Pie papers, the So saffron layer was stamped with So saffron ink and the edges were sponged with same. It does spin now just fine, and you ll have to take my word for it. LOL
HUGS and stampin kisses M xx
