If you were milk…

This sentiment seriously cracks me up … I decided to add it to an otherwise elegant card just for giggles 😉 This is officially my very first card using my hot foiling machine and a hot foil cover plate and matching stencils from Pinkfresh Studios 💙 The photo doesn’t do it justice. This is perfect for the Just Us Girls challenge to use a stencil.


Butterfly love

I have to say I always loved visiting my old family home to see my parents – almost every visit saw an encounter with a monarch butterfly flitting around the garden … and my heart lifted every single time. I just love to see them.

The first card is for this week’s sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.

The second card is for the Less is More CAS challenge. It’s also being entered for the Just Us Girls challenge too.


Tranquil turquoise

One of my all-time favourite colours … turquoise and aqua colours make my heart sing!

I started my very own personal challenge on Monday, where I’ve decided to work through the alphabet, A-Z, using products that I haven’t used before, or that haven’t been touched for many months. To kick off my challenge, I chose A is for Alcohol inks. This is the first card I’ve ever made using alcohol inks – I need a LOT more practice, but I had so much fun trying. And it turned out that this card is perfect for the tranquil turquoise challenge over at the Colorful Options blog!
