After my not following the rules for The Colour Tree Challenge I decided to have another go. I also have no excuses for not having a go at the Spring Planter Box tutorial Bronwyn kindly gave all participants from Challenge #1.
This will be given to a friend who had a birthday last week – late I know but we wont see each other til next week so all OK.
I have used the correct colours this time for the challenge at TCTC #4 here
Instead of stamping with the hardwood stamp set I inked up my Sizzix Woodgrain embossing folder with crumb cake ink (an allowable neutral I think) and embossed the pieces. I also substituted in Sizzlits Little leaves die which I used to make the leaves from Pool Party Cardstock. I created the flowers on calypso coral and daffodil delight cardstock with calypso coral marker and daffodil delight ink. I used SU Petite Petals and SU Flower shop stamp sets. I created the little Happy Birthday tag using SU Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set stamped in tip top taupe and die cut with Tag and Labels Framelits on very vanilla cardstock. The twine is white Baker’s twin. I die cut the butterflies using Bold Butterflies Framelits.

Thanks for stopping to visit me. Hope you have had a fabulous weekend.
Another busy one. Saturday was spent with my friends at a Charity High Tea & market stalls – all day :). Today together Miss E (18), Miss S (14) and myself visited a chocolate factory/shop before Miss S performed in a dance comp. A nice drive which gave me some time to do some knitting – lucky to have someone else to drive now. I’ll share pics of what I am knitting another day.
Today I am sharing 2 cards which I am linking up to the following challenges. Miss E requested a flowery purple card for a friend so I have made 2 so she can choose. Therese’s card is perfect inspiration.
Muse challenge #76
I used SU Sweet Summer stamped with momento tuxedo black onto SU Naturals White CS before water colouring with PTI winter wisteria and SU Perfect Plum and Old Olive. The sentiment panel is Uniko Fontiments Birthday stamped with versafine onyx black and mounted onto SU Perfect plum CS.
I’ve used PTI Winter Wisteria, SU Smokey slate ink to stamp images from SU Mixed Bunch and Morning Meadow sets. I used co co ordinating pansy and Itty bitty accents punches. The sentiment is once again from Uniko Fontiments Birthday stamped in Encore silver ink before heat embossing. Finished off with rhinestones and a heart punched from glitter paper using SU Owl Punch.
and before I go
This is my youngest making an appearance in the Punch with Judy Newsletter. Miss A was looking for something to help with weaving and she found my Westalee Stiletto a purchased from Judy at http://www.punchwithjudy.com.au/ . I sent Judy a pic and she is sharing it with her newsletter readers.
Well I think that covers everything.
