I've used a Whiff of Joy image, patterned paper I've had for ages and don't know where it came from, SU! Close to Cocoa and Certainly Celery cardstock, watercolour pencils for colouring, card candy from Craftwork Cards and ribbon and flower from stash. It's quite a small card (12x12cm), but I'm liking that size just now, it's so quick and easy to work with. Thanks for looking!

I've used Petal Pizzazz from the mini catalogue, sentiment from Live Your Dream, large oval and scallop oval punches, whisper white ribbon and bashful blue DP. My colours are bashful blue, real red, summer sun and old olive. I really really like those big, bold blooms from Petal Pizzazz, there's just so much you can do with them! Thanks for stopping by :)

These two above are 12x12 layouts, I also made an 8x8 layout:
Apart from one little brad and the scalloped edge, the whole page is made using stamps - I'm rather pleased with myself :) And if you're wondering about the rather strong colours: that was the colour scheme of my study/eldest daughter's first bedroom in our old flat, ca 1999. Changing rooms was still very much in vogue ;-) Got to run now and get kids from school, I'll try and add the supplies later today. Thanks for looking!
Again, I've used Fresh Cuts, this time with Old Olive ink, cardstock and wide grosgrain ribbon. Nice and simple, but I really like the look! Hope you like it, too, thanks for stopping by :)
Both cards use Papertrey kraft and aqua mist cardstock, Polka Dot Basics, Green Thumb and Beyond Basic Borders stamp sets, plus Fresh Snow ink. I've also used the Cuttlebug butterfly cut and emboss combo, label 1 nestie die, some white ribbon, a few half pearls and some coordinating buttons. I'm really pleased with the results and hope the recipients will like them, too. Thanks for looking!
