My friend Sue has a sketch challenge over on her blog (with a prize) every month and I do try and support her and enter a page as often as I can.

Here is June's sketch

and this is what I came up with.

Erin-Rose is wearing a bib with cherries on it so I wanted to use the new Stampin Up DSP stack called cherry on the top as I thought it would be perfect.

Why don't you pop over to Sue's blog and see what the challenge is all about?  Maybe you could win the prize this month!

Maria's birthday card

I wanted to make a special card for my friend Maria's birthday and I saw this ages ago and really liked it but never got around to making one.  Anyway I thought it was perfect for what I wanted with a little tweaking - I wanted to put some 4" x 3" notecards and envelopes in the drawer so made it bigger.

This is the result:

This is the box

and the box open

the easel card inside

and the little drawer showing the note cards.

New whisper white thick card

I am so pleased that Stampin Up have finally brought out thicker whisper white cardstock.  Although I love the normal stuff, I didn't feel it was strong enough for a card base.  Anyway, mine arrived this afternoon and this is what I have made.

The front of the card is the normal whisper white and I printed the words on my computer then masked and stamped the flower images down the side using a second stamping of basic grey ink so it was fairly subdued.

I punched out a heart from scrap card and glued it to the back of some fabric to use as a template for cutting out the red spotted hearts.

and added some bakers twine.
