Fun Fold Thank you

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I was a bit taken aback when I came up with today’s color combination ~ Real Red and Coastal Cabana ~ I saw some scraps that had fallen on the floor and decided I was going to go for it!! Very striking and I think it works!

As the colors are so striking I decided to keep the card itself very simple, just using a very simple fun gatefold.

Fond Farewell ~ Beautifully Braided Friendship Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

This is the time of year we say a fond farewell to some of the products from the SU catalog.  Today’s card features the Beautifully Braided Stamp Set and the Glitter Enamel Dots that are available until June 2nd (while stocks last)

The colors were chosen for me – I have been looking for inspiration and one of the Facebook pages I follow put up a color challenge, such bright springtime colors ~ so alI  I had to do was to think of a design. I liked this card so much that I sent this to one of my niece’s in the UK for her birthday.

Stamp Set of the Month to the rescue

You cannot always get notice of the need for a card, so having some ‘cards to hand’ is always a good thing.  We had a bereavement in my husband’s family, as we live so far away, we will not be able to attend the services but at least we can let them know we are  thinking of them.

Last July’s stamp set of the month was Flowering Flourishes and  I made a  series of cards which did not have any sentiment so could be used for most any occasion.
