A midweek couple of quickies...

Hi Best Blogging Buddies..

I'm here on a very snowy day in Wetherby, to show you a couple of cards that I made a couple of weeks back and forgot to blog... using some fabbie things I got from Stampin Up.  I'm afraid the camera hasn't quite picked up the colour of the card on the first image... but I think the others show the different pinks pretty well...  and noooooo .... funnily enough, these aren't cards for In The Pink..  it just shows, pink is never far away from my work space.. LOL!

The first card uses part of a digi image from A Day for Daisies... I think it was called Cherry Blossom...

I also wanted to show you the one below...  t'was my first attempt at trying this style... but I used a freebie digi image, that I really don't think does the frame justice...

Stampin Up Items Used:
  • Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders
  • Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies
  • Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folders
  • Labels Collection Framelits Dies 
  • XL Oval punch
  • Top card also uses Stampin Up Pink Card
  • and lastly - not SU...  a Martha Stewart Border Punch
There's also a touch of glitter on the flowers of both cards, and a little pink bow...

I have to give full credit to Amy at whose card I have CASed...  thank you Amy!

Hope you're staying warm in this nasty weather.... I have to go pick up my car shortly from the garage... it went in for it's MOT this morning after having four new tyres yesterday....  costing me a fortune this week!

Also - to cheer you...  thought you may like to see my lovely OH with his youngest grandson from their visit last week..  It's only about 5 seconds long, but makes me smile everytime I watch it!

Big Hugs to all and Happy Crafting!
