New Spring Florals Stamps

Last weekend Glenda over at Chocolate Baroque released three new sets of stamps. They are such a delight to work with.

Wisteria Lane

The Rose Tree

Fragmant Honeysuckle

I'll be posting pictures on here and over on the Design Team blog over the next few weeks. Pop over there and see what the girls have been up to so far.

Purple Foxgloves Thankyou Card

Again I'm thinking of the Spring and the flowers and fauna it will bring.
I made a mask with a large oval nestie shape cut from copier paper and coloured around the edge of the oval with Milled Lavender.

Using the smaller Foxgloves from Honey Bee stamps I inked with Versamagic Purple Hydrangea. I stamped the flower twice to create a shadow effect. When they were dry I inked the large flower with Versafine Onyx Blackand stamped at the side of the oval and added the Thankyou sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by

Back to work and playing

Today many people are returning to work on a cold wet wintery day but being positive it's the start of a new year and spring won't be far away. I saw bulbs popping through the soil in a neighbours garden yesterday.

Weeks ago my hubby asked me what I'd like for my Xmas present and after alot of thought and research I asked for a Grand Calibur. We went to a local shop and bought one. I recieved my large box on Xmas morning and was delighted. Half an hour after later my OH came down the stairs with an even larger box and I was shocked when he said it was for me. I carefully opened it and inside was a touch screen PC. We had been playing with them in a store months ago. I love it. I love the fact it has a large screen, no base unit and newer software.

I played yesterday with my other new toy and I love the fact I can put multiple dies and various paper through it in one go. I can emboss larger pieces of paper and card. Cut up to A4 apeture cards.

Here is my first creation.
