Its a count your blessings moment praise the Lord

Scrap page psychedelic

My girlfriend Helen and I where having a chat about scrap papers and she said it was a shame stampin-up didnt have psychedelic papers for a teen girl page...... And as any stampin up girl would say of coarse they do and promptly went to work with what was in my hand to construct one

so here it is groovy baby made with bold brights
paper and Big peices stamp set and bold bright inks and versa mark ink. cheers Helen

This was different a very dear friend of mine makes atc cards they are only 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" in size therefore they are great for all those little bits of card you have left over the choc chip words and flourishes are enchanced with gold and the edges and eyes with metallic green
I think I could really get into this with a bit of practice

baby card

This baby slider card took a little bit of extra time but once i had it together I really think its neat the way that when you open the card the picture in the circle changes from the flower to a joyous baby
stamp sets:Greetings galore,carte postale,gods blessings
card stock: soft subtles bashfull blue,pretty in pink
stamp pads:ballet blue,sage shadow
accessories:1:1/4 circle punch,white ribbon,2 way glue pen,dazzling diamonds
