Celebrate with Balloon Bash

Today I inked up my free stamp set Balloon Bash I got in  Orlando for the Stampin Up Leadership,  I am joining in the CC&S Blog Challenge ±111 HERE this weeks challenge is a sketch, I have to say I found it pretty challenging, but then that's what it's all about isn't it.

The colours I used were Bermuda bay and Crushed curry, the matching ribbon and button is a free product from the Stampin Up  sale a bration collection , I did a little masking with the candles, a very simple card that makes a colour impact I think.... I flipped the sketch on it's head and layered up the sentiment...

Valentine treats the Stampin Up way.....

Hello there,  
 Today I was busy busy busy making loads of Valentine treats for Paul to take to his Disabled club, I must confess I used a retired product in the stamp that I used sorry,   but the rest is current, oh my those strawberry hearts smelt relish, and just as well I was making them down my studio or else there would not have been many left if Stamford had got his mitts on them for sure...

Anyhow retired or not I wanted to share how such a simple design made for a beautiful gift for someone, I made 22 in all, I used Melon Mambo, Whisper White and Dazzling diamonds Glitter Card stock, and finished it with a bow using the new Painted Blooms Cotton Twine I won in prize patrol at leadership, I also made the wrap with a die from the apothecary die set....

Pretty sweet Huh!

Sending wishes your way with Stampin Up Painted Petals Stamp Set.......

Hello there,

It's been a real whirlwind of a start to a new year for me, i have been to America with some fellow Demo's albeit for four days, but WOW what a fabulous four days it was too, in Orlando Florida, I had the most amazing time, we did the last ever Leadership event, and did things I would never have done,   anyway it has inspired me to Create more therefore blog more!

Here I am with the girls I shared my expierence with Caroline, Cayleigh and Fiona although we were missing Jan here as we were at the mangers reception and exclusive treat in Disney..

Today I would like to share a card that was inspired by something my fellow Stampin Up team mate Esther had commented on , on our  team facebook group,  Esther entered and came top 3 in the CAS challenge blog, visit Esther's blog HERE,  

Whilst I am too late to join the CAS Challenge HERE , I loved the colour challenge so thought I would have a go myself,  I am in love with the Painted Petals Stamp set, and because myself and my friend Lesley Lendon are planning an all dayer event together using this set, I had it to hand, I am a tad in love with Sahara sand colour too, so hey i just had to have a go, ...  The sending wishes your way is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set..

So without further ado, here is the colour challenge and my cards,...
