More Bangs For Your Buck

I'm over at the Uniko Studio blog today,

(please do join me over THERE)


with some ideas of how to get "more bangs for your buck"

AKA same stamp set two ways!






I was inspired by this week's colour combo over at CAS Colours & Sketches.





Thanks for stopping by!

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #206

I need to make a card for my son's imminent birthday, but thought this week's colour combo over at CAS Colours & Sketches was more suited to a feminine card. 

They aren't colours I would normally put together but I was pleasantly surprised to see how well they work. 

Why not join in on the action? 
You can link up your card HERE

Meanwhile, I'm off to bake and ice a birthday cake for my elder son's birthday tomorrow ... 
Oh yes, and make him a birthday card! 

January is just one long month of birthdays, cards, cake and celebrations in our household. 

It's fabulous! 

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #205


It's my husband's birthday today, so it's fitting that this week's card for the CAS Colours & Sketches is the one I made for his special day!  

It would be great to see your entries for Challenge #205.

I'm off to eat a slice of hubbie's birthday cake ...

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #204

Happy 2017!

I'm delighted to have been invited to guest design for CAS Colours & Sketches this month :)

For the first challenge of the New Year, we have a colour challenge for you:

A fresh, light and airy combo (don't you think?) after the rich opulence of the recent festivities.

You can link up with the challenge HERE.

I look forward to seeing your entries!
Here's wishing you a fun-filled and healthy 2017.
