Yes … I finally found time to stamp! I spent all day trying to get to my desk … and had one interruption after another! But … at 8.30pm I finally just said to hubby … I wanna sit here and finish this!!! 😉 So … I did! and … I actually managed to do two cards in the end! My day was a bit of a muddle. I stood on some glass on the kitchen floor … and although it is only a small cut … it wouldn’t stop bleeding. I boiled the soup over on the stove … The hotplate has burnt “stuff” on it that I just don’t have the muscle to get off! (Job for Shane??? 😉 ) I did manage to get the messy burnt build up off the bottom of the pot … I boiled some water in the pot and added some bicarb soda! Voila! 😀 I couldn’t get the skin off the roasted capsicum … then I had the same problem with the roasted pumpkin. I just was in a mess!!! So … finally … after dealing with all those annoying little circumstances … I just took a deep breath and relaxed with some stamping! Here is the result …
So … this is for the latest Picture Perfect Creations Colour Combo #50 … and it is a stunning combo! I love it! I didn’t have any Pear Pizzazz ribbon … so I substituted with Pumpkin Pie satin ribbon … and it was quite a good match. I adore this “Silhouette Sentiments” stamp set … and find it a joy to create with! Simple but sweet!
The sketch is an “oldie but a goodie” … a past sketch from The Sweet Stop SSS48 from March 2010. I’m not sure if you can see it in the photos … but the butterfly is actually stamped on glossy white card … just to give it a bit more glamour. The shine is subtle but lovely. It is popped up on dimensionals, too! 😀
I am super excited! I treated myself to a few goodies … before wrapping up my SU! accounts … and the order has just arrived. (Along with the orders of my lovely friends who also put in one last order!) 😀 I do have to tell you … I have my “sneak peek” Autumn / Winter Mini Catalogue (released Apr 1) … and I have a $250 wish list already! 🙄 So … I am off for lunch with a special friend … a birthday treat! (For her??? or for me???) 😉 And … then I need to go to gym … and at some stage I am determined to do some blog hopping! Have a lovely day … hugs xxaxx
Added Friday 18th March: How excitement! I am thrilled that I got a “runner up” nod at Picture Perfect Creations for this card! I just had to let you all know! 😀 A big thank you to all the lovely girls on the DT team for selecting my card! xxx
