Let's get going.....

...welcome to my new blog :-)

What better way to get started than by sharing my entry for the Stamp with Us weekly challenge..

This week's challenge is to create a birthday themed item using at least one SU product. I created this birthday card for a special friend's daughter and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. I just love the way the SU colours coordinate so easily - in fact I'm clearing out the inks and other colouring stuff I've accumulated over the years so that I can have SU colours for all my supplies. Yay! :-)

Anyway, here's my card - hope you like it...

SU Products used:

Whisper White & Tempting Turquoise cardstock
Tempting Turquoise ink
Stamps from Petal Pizzazz & A Bit of Birthday Cheer stamp sets
Scalloped Circle & 1 1/4" Circle punches

Patterned paper is from Prima "Flirty Little Secret" collection.

Thanks ladies, sorry its taken me so long to come back & add more! Life really gets in the way sometimes doesn't it! LOL

Kim, my old blog still exists - but it hasn't been updated for ages so I thought I'd have a fresh start with my SU stuff.
I need to update my cycling blog too - my Jordan trip is coming round very quickly now :-)
