Floral Note

Uniko Studio stamps


Using CAS(e) This Sketch and

Paper Players colour scheme.

The Uniko challenge this month is 'flowers'.

And it's the weekend - yay!

Fingers crossed I may get a bit of card-making in...


Carpe Diem

One layer cards


Sweet Stampin want us to focus on the sentiment.
Time Out has a challenge for us to find inspiration in words.
Less Is More want one layer cards with a 'time' theme.
I went through all my stamps but didn't have one with a specific 'time' reference.
I'm hoping this quotation stamp hits the mark -
I love how it reminds us to 'seize the moment' and live in the here and now.


There's no time like the present.

I'm off to hug my boys.

Crafty Creations want to see CAS.
Seize The Birthday want 'Bold & Bright'.
Allsorts want one for the boys.




My card was also using the ColourQ colours - but unfortunately I was too late posting -

as they are now last week's challenge colours!


Story of my life at the moment ;)

Life has been running (way too fast) away from me lately and I am barely keeping up.

Roll on the summer holidays ...



Uniko July Bloghop

Welcome to Uniko's July Bloghop.

This month we are revisiting the Paradise: Hummingbird stamp set.


Lots of vibrant tropical colours for a showcase of the wonderful Hummingbird stamp.
I had a play with my distress inks, masking and water splashes for my first card:



Then a complete contrast for my second card,

showing just how versatile this stamp set is!


A bit of delicate blending with my marker pens
ans some delicate gold thread.
