Bloomin' Heart

Its my friends birthday and here is the card I made for her. I pondered over colours but because it is her 50th birthday I needed something a bit formal. I have not included the 50 numeral yet because I only have the retired ones and I do try to put only current stock on my blog. In saying that I did use Brushed Gold cardstock for the flowers because the gold glimmer paper was too much and did not show enough detail.

For this card I have used the following:-
Stamp Set - Botanicals For You
Cardstock - Basic Black, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake & Brushed Gold
Accessories - Bloomin' Heart Framelit, Pearls

The card really does look better in true life. I took so many photos to get a decent one to try to show it off. I will be trying different colour cardstock now to see what I can come up with. 
Thanks for popping by:)

Frames for my Niece and Nephew

Here are a couple of frames I have made for a niece and nephew of mine. 
I had much joy making these although I found the girl one a bit challenging because my niece wanted certain colours. I really enjoyed making the boy one but two of the images are not Stampin' Up! I don't usually use any other products other than Stampin' Up! products but I was on a camp and borrowed some stamp sets. I was very happy at how they turned out. I need to give them to my nieces now so that they can place them in their children's rooms. I hope they like them.

Back At Last

Well here I am back at last.  I went to a Stampin' Up! Stamparoo's meeting last night and one of the girls there said she uses Google Chrome so that she is able to put her photos on.  I have been trying with Explorer and Mozilla but not Chrome.  Well here I am and it worked and its been three years since I have been on my blog.  We have just returned from a wonderful holiday to New Zealand with Princess Cruises. This photo is of Dusky Sound in the Fiordlands.  It was so peaceful and serene in this spot.  This was just a test photo to see if I could upload pics.  Well it worked so I am leaving it here. Hope you like it. I will be back soon with some projects I have been working on. I am so pleased its working. Thanks for popping by and I shall see you again soon. :)
