New Papers

It's been a bit few and far between posts of late as my DH still hasn't got my laptop up and running yet. It's looking very sad at the moment!! I am missing it terribly.

My lovely friend Wendy was kind enough to take some photos of my latest creations and as I am using her laptop at the moment she uploaded them onto it for me to update my blog. Luv ya Wendy!!

Anyway, here are some of my latest cards I had made using the new and beautiful DSP "Bella Rose" and "Sweet Always". I just love the colours in both of these packs.
This card is made using the lovely Kiwi Kiss cardstock as the base then followed by Whisper White and Bella Rose paper. I used the swirl from "Priceless" stamped in Kiwi Kiss and the small flower from that set with Riding Hood Red. The saying on the scalloped circle is from the "Forever in my Heart" set which is inked firstly in Kiwi Kiss and then using the daubers I then edged around with Riding Hood Red ink.

This next card was a case of CASEing from the very talented and gorgeous Karen Thomas who was very cheeky and made this card for me for my birthday. I don't have the Sock Monkey set (and probably won't!!) so I changed it to the giraffe from "Wild About You". The base card is made from Tangerine Tango which has co-ordinated beautifully with the lovely "Sweet Always" DSP. The giraffe in the Chocolate Chip scallop is mounted on Pink Pirouette and Whisper White. The happy birthday label is made with Chocolate Chip and Pink Pirouette. Such a beautiful combination of colours. After putting this card together I noticed that my poor giraffe looks a bit "anterless" (probably not a word, but it sounds good!!) as the party hat is hiding them.

LOL! Karen - I've loved reading this post of yours! Your cards are just beautiful - honestly they are! And your giraffe is way cute with his party hat on!

Thanks for sharing them and THANKS HEAPS to Wendy for taking the pics for ya!
