An experiment with the Blogger app

An Eclectic stamp
Set of cards

Card inserts

I never used to bother with card inserts mainly because I never used to send the cards I'd made but of late I have realised that the inside of a card, where you leave your own greeting is as important than the front. As a result I have tried to co- ordinate the two. 

Here are a couple of examples


And this one



 And finally...


 It really gives a professional fish don't you think? 


 
 


 


 

Amazing Birthday stamp set

I really love this years new in- colours, especially Blackberry Bliss and think when it is teamed with Hello Honey it makes for a striking combination on these cards. 
Even on these notelet a they still look stunning.


 


 


 


 


 


 

Hexagons a go-go!

Yes here are more cards using the six sided sampler hexagon stamp set. It really is a great stamp to use - especially as it has a matching punch!




 


 


 


 


 


 

Card catch up!

I might not have blogged much lately but I have been busy crafting. For once I have a box full of cards just waiting for someone to have a birthday!

These are some thank you notes I made for colleagues at work who kindly invited me to their retirement buffet.


Same card- different colours. I used Strawberry Slush, Calypso Coral (sorry no picture of this one) and Coastal Cobana with the Six Sided Sampler hexagon stamp set and punch. There will be more to come...I really like the versatility of this stamp.








Birthday cards

This year I have even  sent some of the cards I have made after finally deciding they were worthy of it. I hope those who received them enjoyed looking at them as much as I enjoyed making them.

Blogger App and more sale-a-bration previews

I have been trying out a new app which allows me to update my blog from my phone - so far so good. I think this is my 4 th post. It makes uploading photographs very easy.

Here are a few more thank you cards which showcase the free designer series paper called Best Year Ever
