Basketball Card

Ok so I have finally done it - I have come to the last card in my 'to blog' folder from 2013 - seriously I wasn't a good blogger then!

My Husband coaches a basketball team and one of the players were moving interstate, so this is the card I made for all the team to sign. I love how graphic this card is and it seriously came together within minutes.

Is it just me or does it feel like you cheat when something looks good, but only took minutes to create?

Thanks for looking :)

Sparkly Rainbow

Good morning! Thought I would share one of the last cards I have in my 'to blog' folder from last year. This was a card I made for one of our little friends. I wanted to try creating a rainbow with my circle dies and it was seriously simple! I love how it turned out and the added bonus was that I actually made 2 cards, as you cut the full circle in half and create another rainbow.

My colours are real red, pumpkin pie, daffodil delight, tempting turquoise, old olive and rich razzleberry. I created the clouds with my scallop circle punch and just cut them down.

Any questions, just ask and thanks for looking.

'P' Party

(Just noticed I used all 'P' things to create this card - what are the odds!)

Hi, just popping past to share a quick card I made for a young relative of mine.

I kept it reasonably simple and let all those bright bold colours do the talking. I made the pattern in a snap, using my petite pennant punch - easy peesy! The background is also embossed with the perfect polka dots EB folder.

Thanks for looking

TSOT #160 - Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to our blog hop! The designers at Try Stampin' On Tuesday have created a little blog hop for you to enjoy. Also there is a prize up for grabs if you go through the hop and leave a comment on each designers blog. You would have come from Sara H and her stunning card.

Anyway, onto my card:

I decided to use the twist with this weeks card, which was to add a masculine touch - to add to my depleting stash. I did still want it to be bright, so I pulled out my colour coach and settled on old olive, night of navy and daffodil delight.

I kept it rather CAS and with little bulk, as guy's dont really seem to always appreciate huge amounts of embellishments and it's always helpful when a card can be sent as a standard letter :)

I used my six sided sampler stamp set and stamp-a-ma-jig to create the panel and my sentiment is from sweet essentials.

We would love to see you play along with us this week, you dont have to use the twist, just use the sketch as your inspiration.

Your next stop on the hop is Shell and her adorable creation.

Thanks for looking and happy hopping
