I just love this neutral colour combination of Soft Suede (I think it could actually take over as my favourite colour from Chocolate Chip), Crumb Cake, Bashful Blue and Whisper White. I'm not a real fan of the traditional Christmas colours of red and green.
I think the ornaments look great resting on the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder impression, teamed with the also elegant Many Merry Messages sentiments and detailed with half pearls and gold brads. It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, isn't it? :)
This gorgeous image was coloured with SU markers. I like to think that my watercolouring is improving. Even if it isn't, I still love doing it. Ha ha...
Take care until next post.
I have to say that I just love the Soft Suede shade, seen here teamed with Bashful Blue, but that little touch of red just seems to lift the card. I topped the jackpot alarm thingamajiggy with Crystal Effects. The image was coloured with SU markers. The tiny sentiments from the Silhouette Sentiments hostess set fit perfectly on the Jewellery Tag punch.
I can't wait to give it to her. I know she'll have a good chuckle.
Enjoy your night & see you soon.

The cardstock colours I used were Pretty in Pink and Soft Suede. The images were stamped with black StazOn on watercolour paper & coloured with SU markers in Blush Blossom, Soft Suede, Pretty in Pink, Sahara Sand and Rose Red. I have to say that I just love the Elegant Lines embossing Folder. Have I mentioned that before? The butterfly is a single SU stamp called All a Flutter. Again, the sentiment is from Silhouette Sentiments. Sentiments were punched with the 1 inch circle punch. I used glitter on the wings. Flowers & silver charms are from my stash & the silver brads are also from SU.
Thank you again for stopping by. I hope you've gained inspiration in some way.

I can't wait for tomorrow. I never really sleep in on weekends but I just love not having to rush to get out of my PJ's and out of the house. And the weather promises to be divine tomorrow. Bring it on!
Anyway, my girls have been invited to quite a few parties over the next few weeks & this is one of the cards I made for our little neighbour who will be turning four soon...
I used SU markers to colour my image. Colour used were Pumpkin Pie, Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip and Blush Blossom. I used the star punches to embellish the card and Crystal Effects on the soccer ball. I finished it off with some coloured string that I received for my birthday & a silver charm from my bottomless pit of a stash.
The sentiment is from one of the new Level 1 Hostess Sets called Silhouette Sentiments. It is tiny & just gorgeous. It was punched out with a circle punch.
Well, thanks again for taking the time to stop by my Blog. Make the most of your weekend.
Feel free to ask any questions. Thanks for stopping by.

Here is the card for my dad that I promised...
I just love this stamp because it looks just like my Dad - ha ha! - the grumpy look, the shorts with long socks & sneakers, and the glasses!
The sentiment is computer generated because I wanted it to be in Spanish.
What's on the creative agenda for today? Another card. This time time for a female friend. Stay tuned.
Enjoy your day.

I have to say that I really love the new Elegant Lines Embossing Folder. It creates a really lovely, deep embossing effect. And as you've probably noticed, I've been adding the Little leaves wherever I can - ha ha!
I've started working on a card for my Dad, whose birthday is also coming up so stay tuned for that one.
I'm off to enjoy my fruit salad with yoghurt. Mmmm. Can't you just feel Summer approaching?

Here is the card I made for hubby...
I won't posts the cards I made for our fathers because I have used cards that have featured on my Blog before.
Well, take care & enjoy this special day.

She's so cute, right?
