Some Wedded Bliss..Stampin Up Wedding Cards

I had a request to make wedding cards at a recent workshop. White just creates some beautiful and crisp cards and I must say I was so happy with these cards.

Fifth Avenue floral Stamp Set has been available for a long time now but just looks so elegant when all embossed and mounted above the Manhattan Flower embossing folder.

October Monthly Challenge...To Use Brads

Brads come in all shapes and sizes and I must say I have a HUGE range in my cash and carry sale boxes this month. To incorporate this Months Challenge with the Cash and Carry sales items I have completed this page with my favourite scrw head Brads. I love these photos of Harry, who said double sided tape had to be used for cards...Harry worked out he could attach his floor mat to his door with double sided tape.

A chilly Zoo review.

From the moment I seen the New stamp set Zoo Review, I knew I had to have it. I am so inspired by Pams Chilly Polar Card that I might just have to have a little play with this fabulous set myself.
