New SU colours

Hi Everyone,

I was really upset when SU announced they were getting rid of 29 !! colours.....just when I had got all my collection of everything together and was looking forward to everything blending LOL....

Anyhow I decided to bite the bullet and changed all my pads around, I will atke a picture to show the before and after, my marker storage looks a bit sad so hopefully SU will allow people to just buy the new markers pads etc etc....

I do like the new collections though and have been making some cards with the colours I have.....

EBAY here I come with all the card, inkpads and markers I will try and sell them as a set I think....

Easter Treats

My good friend Sharon made me this jar filled with treats for easter....she made all the flowers 3 on the top and 5 on the jar....WOW all that flower squishing Sharon...dont know that my hands and fingers could have done that but the effect is beautiful.There are lots of tutorials on the net for making these flowers also on Youtube too !!!
Thanks Sharon I loved it.....

More vintage vogue cards

OOPS the top card isnt vintage vogue....dont know how that snook in there LOL.......not sure I like the colour.Whilst I had the stamps and card out I decided to make a few, just changed the words.They are from Sincere Salutations and Heard from the heart stamp sets...gotta love SU.
I want to try the same cards but using each of the colour families and maybe some different shapes for the shadow.....hmmmmm some of the new nestabilities frames would lend themselves well to making shadows......

Vintage Vogue Asstd cards

I love this set, now available in the UK Stampin UP catalogue...I couldnt wait for mine so borrowed the set from Jenny....cant wait to see what she comes up with for this set.
I have seen so many beautiful cards on blogs and SCS I loved the idea that I saw on Jo's blog so went to play....

Look what the Easter Bunny brought us !!!!!

We decided not to have any eggs this year so instead we asked the easter bunny for a new swing seat for the garden. We built it this morning and the sun came out this afternoon so we were able to sit and have a cuppa out in the sunshine....lovely !!
