Busy this week ... lots to unpack, lots of beads being bagged up, kits assembled. All good !
Tons of pictures !
Card Kit of the Week :
This week's kit uses ice cream themed paper ... all lovely strawberry, chocolate chip, and moonmist colours ! The cards would be great birthday cards or note cards. And who doesn't like ice cream ?
You get all the materials - ready to assemble- for all 3 cards for just $5. The diecuts and journaling cards vary from kit to kit but they all come from the same co-ordinating line so they are all cute !! Leave a comment or email me if you want any saved.
Loads of new things ... I'll be unpacking & pricing this week but will hopefully have time to make samples for next week !!!

|Penny Black's new butterfly stamp. Love it !! I stamped it and then used my aqua brush & Distress markers to add colour. Then a little Stickles for good measure.|
|Here's a new embossing folder set from Sizzix ... bicycles. The pink one I made by wiping a pink chalk inkpad across the folder before embossing white paper.|
|I love this die from Penny Black. "Birds on Wire"|

I wanted a sunset look. Then I just added the birds diecut from black cardstock.
