July Birthdays ...
The first card is for a good stamping friend, she always finds some lovely little idea to create for our periodic stamp nights leading up to Christmas, which is really appreciated (the gift and idea). Also a great source of inspiration and her fault I discovered SU! But I get my own back as she is cursing me for introducing her to PTI, she had to find out how great the stamps were sooner or later!
What you need
Cardstock - PTI Kraft, Raspberry Fizz
Stamps - Flourishes "Fanciful Flourishes"; PTI Autumn Abundance
Ink - PTI Fresh Snow; Memento Tuxedo Black
Die - PTI Tea for Two Collection
Gemstones - Zva Creative, Kaisercraft
Maile Belles cards when she uses this very simple idea, but it is so effective. Susan used it on her Simplicity blog a month or two ago which reminded me to give it a try.
Hope both these wonderful ladies have a lovely birthday
What you need
Cardstock - Art Stamps textured card (white); SU Whisper White

OK, I really need to get cracking on my mother's Christmas cards, we really loved all the cards that featured crocheted flowers etc, and being a lady of a certain age, dug around in her extensive knitting/crochet pattern cupboard and found an ancient one for snowflakes so that's what she would like to use. Suffice to say she has already completed the snowflakes needed, and we have decided to use SU Handsome Hunter as the card base, how much harder can it be to design something!!! (sigh)
