Priceless Pretties

Do you ever make a card and wonder, I’m not really sure if I like it?  Well, this is that card for me.  I really love the Groovy Guava textured cardstock, my Priceless stamp set and the Pretties kit pearls and flower I’ve added (and touched the flower up with the coordinating colours with my blender pens and ink pads).  But I just am not sure I like the end product.  What do you think?

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Baby Shower card

I had a baby shower on the weekend for a very special family member from my husband’s side of the family.  We are all very excited that Alison is pregnant (it has been a tough road) and we know she is also having a boy who is due in August.

This is the card I made for her Baby Shower … it only took about 15 minutes to put together and I was really happy with it.  I found inspiration for the card from SCS here.

I had the pleasure of using my textured card stock again which is just gorgeous and looks fabulous!  Plus, I played with my new Crop-a-dile again and the scallop circle punch.  I used Fun & Fast Notes for the pram and So Many Sayings for the words (with my Bashful Blue marker pen – stamp to rubber).  Of course, although the lighting is bad in the photo, you can’t really see the Dazzling Diamonds I have used.  The wide grosgrain ribbon really finishes the card off.  What do you think?

If you like the effect of the three Barely Banana brads you really should order a Crop-a-dile.  It makes adding an attractive embellishment easy and silent to do 🙂  Email me today!
