Finally another post & challenge

Hi everyone,


I haven’t had a chance to send a post for a while as I have been to the Stampin’ Up! Convention in Melbourne and it was GREAT!


Had a wonderful time, met so many crafty people, exchanged ideas and it was so worth travelling to Melbourne and experiencing the cold and wet but I must say I also got to see my Sister and her family which was an added bonus :)


As you know, you then come back home you get back into routines work, school, life in general but along the way unfortunately pick up a cold.


So I was not feeling the best over the weekend but I am much better now and back on board.


Now on to my card creation…..


I have used the colour challenge from Just Add Ink and the sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary:





I have used Baja Breeze for the base of my card and I have created a card for Child’s Birthday.  It is my youngest niece’s birthday next month so I think I will give this card to her.


I have used the Fox & Friends, Party This Way & On Your Birthday stamp sets as well as some of the texture embossing folders in the Big Shot.





Stamp set: Fox & Friends, Party This Way, On Your Birthday

Card: Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum, Whisper White
Ink: Certainly Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum

Accessories:  Textured Square Lattice & Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folders, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Word Window Punch, 1” (2.5 cm) Circle Medium Punch, 1-3/8” (3.5 cm) Circle Large Punch, 3/8” (1 cm) Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, 1/2” (1.3 cm) Pear Pizzazz Stitched-Poly Ribbon, Mat Pack for Paper Piercing, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive


This was an unusual sketch but this is why you call them challenges!


In the end I think both the sketch and the colours have worked well together and I am sure my niece will enjoy this card for her 4th Birthday.


Until next time…. Meg x
