How to keep your partner busy!

I thought it might be fun to show Paul poking the holes out of the doilies for me - he is very patient and did all the ones that my friend Betty sent over for me!

I'm playing catch up here as I haven't posted for a while so here is one card headed off to a friend for her birthday made with the new royal velvet colour cardstock and ribbon from Papertrey along with the Parisian Lace die cut with white - boy it takes an age to poke out all those holes - a perfect in front of the tv job!

I also made this card this weekend - it features the new Flower Fusion No.1 stamps from Papertrey - a real little bargain at $5 and lots of fun to play with.  I dug out my versacolour cubes to stamp the flowers - they give great coverage on acrylic stamps - and used a Martha Stewart punch for the fence.

Pretty Sweet Peas

I made a couple of cards with the lovely Sweet Peas stamp set from Flourishes - they are so easy to stamp and colour.  The flowers are coloured with copic markers and the papers are from my stash - I think they may be SEI.  I got the inspiration for this card from Becca Feeken but mine isn't half as classy! (I did correct that ribbon before I sent it off as it looks awful in the photo!)

 This card and the one below fits well for the latest Flourishes challenge which is to use cut edges on your card - here I have used different nestabilities.

  In this card I stamped the smaller flower image as my background in PTI's scarlett jewel ink and really like the pattern it made.  The sentiment is from Verve stamps.

  Thanks for stopping by and not deserting me since I have been awol!
