(Happy Financial New Year everyone!!!)

Here is my take on the challenge.....

This is one of a set of a gift box of cards I have made.  I just love love love this Webster's cling stamp!!
It is only little (the size of the stamped image above) and I was at first at a loss of how I was going to use it (I thought it was like the size of the Hero Arts Background stamps I've got) but I really like it.
BE QUICK if you like it as SCRAPBOOK BOUTIQUE have it on special at the moment!!!!

My ever GROWING die collection is AWESOME!!! and I love this Memory Box Die Precious Hearts die!! so so so cute!!

I will post the gift box and all the cards in the next few days.

Thanks for joining in our challenges, I love checking out how other people "interpret" the cupcake prompt!! and love checking out your blogs!!

Thanks for popping by
Next on the hop

Enjoy xxx :)


Yes, it's been a while.....

Long time between drinks eh?! or crafty posts!!!  I have been super busy with work!! Term 2 seems to bring lots of snotty noses and barking coughs and absenteeism!!!  Cannot wait for the better weather!!!
anyway I did have a small break the other day when ALL of my private lessons cancelled due to sickness and yes, I did take advantage......It was SO GOOD to play :):):)

Like I've said previously.......... I just love this Hero Arts Open Flower (and closed flower too!) I played with some water colour this time and I am so happy with the result!  I was debating if I should go lighter and darker in the middle but the random look grabbed me!  A spray of perfect pearls makes it shimmer 
(photo doesn't really do it justice!!!!)

All the details and products can be found at Scrapbook Boutique a gorgeous new look too!!! and some pretty neat specials on at the moment!!!
