I really love the colours for Amy's recipe and it is one I will use again and again. I was short of the mint julep but will be ordering with my next order for sure. I substituted that colour with a cardstock that I thought looked close in colour.I cracked open a stamp set from the last release Bold Blossoms and I am totally in love with this beautiful set. Happy Birthday to PTI I wish you all the very best and cant wait to see what year 10 brings :)

Love this weeks sketch and reached for one of my very favourite TE stamps for this one. Love the whole set but this elephant just melts my heart :). Here is the sketch this week.
I would say I used the sketch more than CAS but for saying that, this is pretty CAS in my book. With my last purchase from TE I purchased some embossing folders and I love them to bits, the emboss is just perfect lovely crisp clean embossing..........I will be sure to add a few more to my next order :) .
The embossing folder used today is called Birthday and the beautiful elephant is a part of the stamp set Balloon Buddies.

I love what Laurie did for this weeks Make it Monday, so much talent!!!. I then went and looked at the floral stamp sets I have from PTI and then decided to shade the lovely Christmas trees from the Joyful Christmas set. Funny as it is the 1/1/16 and I have made my first Christmas Card :). I did some shading on the trees with my prismas colour pencil Apple Green over the top of the new cardstock vintage jadeite which is so lovely. I then placed vellum over some white cardstock and added my shaded trees to the top. Sadly it is not really clear in my photo. I love the spotty vellum as it looks like big snowdrops :) . Thanks for dropping by today and I hope 2016 brings many blessings for You and Yours............Lyn

Today I worked on a card for this awesome sketch and I cannot believe it has taken me this long to open a stamp set that I fell in love with the minute I saw the previews :). I will not be putting this one away but making a few more cards first as just adore these little flowers and the sentiments too.
Thanks for dropping by and I wish you all the best for 2016 which is so so close now!

Well it is that time of the month again and I have found time to play, so very excited as I have a few new stamp sets sitting here to play with :).

I just received another box of Taylored goodies and just could not resist this latest challenge Tic Tac Toe!
For my card I used distress ink, gold (my lovely sequins) and twine. I love this stamp and for sure I will forget a birthday and then put this to good use. The gorgeous cardstock and papers have come from the Hello Happiness collection also from TE. Thanks for dropping by, I hope everyone has a Joyous Christmas, God bless.
