AnnaBelle Say It In ..............


We're so excited here at AnnaBelle Stamps as we have NEW stamps to share with you. We're giving you sneak peaks at two sets today along with the new BBD 7, all of which should be available to purchase from January 14th.

We also have two fabulous new members to the Design Team ... Therese and Jess, you are going to love their work I promise.   Andrea has also invited Cath Dean to join us for  January as our guest designer. What a great way to start the new year.

I've added the girls links under the DT tab at the top of my page so why not go welcome them.  Andrea has more exciting news coming....... so keep watching.

Right, I better get on with the reason for the post today which is of course our usual Friday ABS challenge which this week is to 'Say It In Black, White and Silver".  We hope you'll join in and share your projects with us.

Both my cards feature images and sentiments from Garden Silhouettes.

I'm hoping to make a few more male cards this year so this challenge was a great way to start.
How about a fabulous new BBD set,  no.7 in the series and it's checks and stripes..... just right for all your male cards. I silver embossed my sentiment and added a chipboard U works I think!
I'm adding this card in the CAS challenge over at the Outlawz site this week.
It's also my entry to CASual Friday's challenge CFC34
Simon Says Stamp challenge this week is to use something NEW so how about new stamp sets???

Here's a second card using the beautiful corner scrolls as well as one of the silhouette pretty embossed in opaque white with a little silver twine bow!

That's it for me, but go check in with the girls who, I'm sure will inspire you with their work.
Till next time......................

I can feel some CASEs coming on!!! I think we all need to make some more masculine cards, why are they always so challenging to do??
