FROM DAISIES TO JAPAN..

Hi Lovelies.  Hope you are enjoying some summer sunshine where you are.  It's been a lovely day here in Yarm, and we are hoping the good weather stays with us at least for the weekend.  I am starting this post off with three delightful 'daisy' cards made by lovely teamie Flo...




The stamp Flo has used in 3 different ways in these is CI-262, along with some papers from our mini background books.

In similar colours I have this beautiful card by teamie Joanna, using stamp CI-474, bedecked with Wisteria flowers...


Simply stunning Joanna!

...And another stunner is this very pretty rose from CI-470 made by teamie Sandra..



(lovely colouring Sandra!)

I'm not sure if I have shown you the next two cards before, but they seem to fit in nicely colour wise, made recently by me...



I used our background papers and our mini image book Nature's Beauty along with some die cut mini frames, which are great fun to decorate with CI stamps and stuff.

Finally tonight I have a few makes to show you from a couple of our customers.  The first is by Sherry Hickey from USA...


Sherry used CI-471 and I love the soft gentle colouring, and the touch of aqua in the ribbon.

The last cards are by Eriko from Japan, who is quite new to stamping, but is having the time of her life practising and making her lovely images.  Don't you just love the way we can travel the world so quickly courtesy of the internet, and connect with people we would never have met otherwise?!  Fabulous...



Thanks so much for sharing ladies - you are all so clever and so talented.

Bye for now,
Back soon,

IT'S ALL PINKS AND PEACHY....

I have some lovely makes with lovely colour schemes to show you this evening.  Starting with the gorgeous pink flamingos here below by Flo.....



....so very bright and cheerful, and totally tropical!  Love them!

More by Flo to follow here - from the seaside themed show on Hochanda - here are some ships....



....and some seagulls and feathers....


Still on one of my favourite themes of the seaside here are two makes by lovely Joanna.  This fabulous scene in a box....


And a very pretty card with the sandy toes and salty kisses little boy....


Flo did a very cute thing with the little boy on the following card, using just the top of his head and his little feet, and the deckchairs...


.....adorable!

I recently made this card and used a template by Flo to create a home for a fruity teabag to pop inside - a teenie tiny gift for a friend....



and here is an image of a make I have just received today from Daniele - so pretty, using Paper Artsy infusions I believe...


Finally I popped the two tags below by Flo on Facebook the other day and you loved them, so here they are in all their glory again....


Thank you ladies ... and we are also sending lots of love to Manchester and London this evening....

Bye for now,
Back soon,
