Another new week but I'm back again with another card using last weeks colour combination .....
A bit of flower colouring this time - and check out the very subtle background music notes. I love SU background stamps and this one is equally nice with a vintage feel like this or making a bold, dramatic impact too !
Do you like those tiny square embellishments in the top right hand corner ? Left overs from last weeks door card lol ! Waste not, want not ...

Back with something a bit different today, ghost stamping. For this I used the new SU glossy card stock, can't wait to play with this more !
I stamped the little fishy background with Versamark ink and then sent aside to dry. Once dry I then sponged them with three horizontal stripes starting with Tranquil Tide at the bottom, then Emerald Envy, then Tempting Turquoise. As you press the ink in it is resisted by the Versamark and little white fishes appear!

Morning all, Monday again. How quickly the weeks roll by - a sign of getting old lol !
Today it's not a card I've got to show you but some gift packaging. I recently sent my grown up niece a MAC cosmetics gift card. It was a black gift card and it came with a completely plain black envelope so I decided it needed 'stampyupifying' a bit to make it a bit prettier. I used one of the new gold striped gift bags and it was literally done in a minute, complete with a gold clip and some of the new mini sequin trim to coordinate with the black inside.

Friday again ! Thank Crunchie !
Been a busy week, but the highlight has got to be another special card I received in the post from a very special lady !
It came all the way from the Stampin' Up! Home office in Utah with a personal message from the lovely Sara Douglass, CEO !!!
Sarah from our team had taken the trouble to contact Sara and let her know about our recent effort to send cards to the emergency services following the awful tragedies and I'm so touched that Sara contacted me. I'm such a lucky girl but really it is to recognise the whole team effort
If you can, please surprise someone with an unexpected handmade card in the post - it means so much !
