Live Your Dream

I made this card last month for a friends birthday. I tried to make it softer and more feminine for a change. Not usually my style but it was nice to make something a bit different.

I used the Live Your Dream stampset which is one of the stamp sets that Stampin' Up ! is giving 50% to the bush fire appeal. I am giving my 20% too so infact 70% will go to the bush fire appeal.
Its a very versatile stamp set and great for quick cards. A good basic stamp set to have in the cupboard.

Stamp Set - Live Your Dream
Inks - Groovy Guava, Chocolate chip
Cardstock - Soft Sky, Groovy Guava,Whisper White, Afternoon Tea designer paper
Other - chunky glitter, Groovy Guava ribbon

Kwerner Colour Challenge #40

This weeks challenge I found a bit tricky but i guess that's the idea to stretch our use of colour.

Accessories - large oval punch, white gel pen, ribbon, Mat pack for paper piercing,Stamp-a-ma-jig

Love the Bird !

I fell in love with this funny bird when i found it on Donna's website, Butternut Sage Designs
I am going to use it as a Valentines Day card but it could have many uses. I used the Pick a Petal stamp set and many different round punches.
The eyes are made of black buttons. It should have black stamens as wild eye brows but i am still on the look out for them. Love to know if anyone knows where i could buy some.
