Masking with your stamps

My card for today shows how much fun you can have with retro colours and the masking technique.
This is such an easy technique that is fun to use and gives really good effect and finish to your card.
I am demoing this at the moment (have a look at my demo section to see if I have a demo near you!)... after the demos are finished I'll do an easy to follow step by step on the blog to show how easy it is to do.

Best friends

It's always nice to let your best friend know how much you love them.... this little gift is the perfect way!
I made it using one of the new embossing folders from Do Crafts....

Very easy to do - a perfect mini gift for teachers too....
Whatever you are doing today I hope you are having a nice relaxed Sunday....... back to the rat race tomorrow!

Elle's mid month challenge

Over on the Elle blog it's time for our mid month challenge... this month it's atc's.

Now atc's are not normally something I make a lot of, but I really enjoyed making this one. And I think I'm going to make a lot more and keep them ready as card toppers!
Come on over to the Elle blog and have a play with us!
Let us see what you create.

Something old

something new, something borrowed, something blue!
Here is a wedding card that I made using the Silhouette SD machine.
I'm really pleased with the way that it has turned out.
What you can't see from the picture is that the word is all glittered too.
Let me know what you think?
