Monday, Monday, So good to me!!!


Hi Blogger's

We enjoyed some good weather over the week end  in Sydney. It did pour with rain late Sunday afternoon but as Walshie and I had spent time in the garden, tidying ready for winter, we were glad to see it.  We caught up with friends, eating out, so I had little cooking to do, instead I spent some time clearing more space in my work area.  I made a few cards too which was great.......I'm a little ahead of things which I like.  AnnaBelle Stamps have lots of new sets available in the On-Line store which we will be featuring in the coming weeks.  Don't forget the Blog Hop  you still have the chance to win the 3 new Belle digital illustrations.......be quick though, the winner will be announced tomorrow!!!!!

I have two cards to share today, the first is another made with Summer Rain:


Coloured with Prisma's and OMS with some paper piecing. The sentiment is computer generated.


My second card uses another of Annabelle Stamps new sets called Squared:


Spellbinder's scalloped squares make up the shape of this Easel Card I made ready for Ian's B'Day!

I used the Frame with a side sentiment, then added a centre square of hearts.  I also stamped an individual heart in red,  embossed it, cut it out and popped it up over the centre heart.  To complete the card I added a red heart Sprinkle some red cotton cord and some licorice sprinkles
