Golfing Thankyou

I have had a wonderful time golfing this month and have managed to come home with prizes every time I have played. Of course on sponsored days it is rather nice to send special thanks for the trophy.
I have used this weeks sketch from Taylored expressions sketch challenge TESC125
I used my nestabilities to cut ou the circles and the cuttlebug embossing folder tiny bubbles to make them look like golf balls.
It is rather hard to find golf stamps for ladies as it is reconized as a male sport, I even googled women golf stamps and only came up with one image that was more suited to a comedy card , not excatly what I was after. So I have used this little golf ball hiding its eyes and coloured the tee pink as the sponsor was female.
I like how it turned out a quick and simple card and by changing the colour of the tee it will also be suitable for a male card.

Orential Flowers

Today's card is just something that I made some time ago,I think I was on holidays. I really can't remember if it was made from a sketch or just my layout idea. I do know it was my first attempt to make background card that was wider than the usual size for the cuttlebug embossing folder. The ribbon is in the middle to hide the join.

Sharing in your sorrow

Today I attended a family funeral this is the card I made, I used sketch OCCSC29 from our creative corner weekly sketch challenge. I inked up the tree with oregano ink and the over stamped the leaves with meadow, this gave the tree a two toned look. I am not over impressed with my stamp positioning of the verse, I think I will cut the image out before stamping in the text if I happen to use this stamp again.
Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers
Paper: white, always artichoke, dp- wintergreen
Other: nestabilities labels 5, ribbon, flower, adirondack ink oregano & meadow, black ink , ds tape, foam tape.

Born to shop

I have had a busy week but I managed to make this card, which is a bonus for me to get into the craft room.
Today's card is made using Sweet Sunday Sketch SSSC81. I actually made this card on a sunday, yeahh.
I started with stamping the heart in the light coloured ink and over stamped it with the coffee bean, then black for the verse.
I very rarely do the inside of the card as I like to put a printed sentiment inside, but this verse came free with the current Creativity Magazine.
Stamps: Grace Taylor; docrafts bubbles - born to shop
Paper: Chocolate chip, very vanilla,old olive, DP - afternoon tea
Other: flowers, brads,ribbon,brillance pearlescent orange and coffee bean, Memento black

As pretty as a Rose

I picked up this stamp from a craft show, you can see other Morehead stamps here, isn't she really cute. I think I will keep my eyes open for others in this range of stamps they are so nice. For those in Australia you can order them from the stamp shak.
The sketch I have used is from Sweet Sunday sketch challenge SSSC75, which was posted a few weeks ago on the sweetest thing. I dug out my favourite stampin up designer paper Bella Rose.

Just for you

The card I have made today is for a double challenge Taylored Expressions TESC123 and Our Creative Corner "It's embossable".
I was asked to make a 21st card and I wanted to add a charm. This charm is actually a charm used on your wine class, so you don't forget which is yours. I still have a bit of the wrapping paper left from the card that I made last month, I like to recycle when I can.
I purchased some empty envelopes in various sizes from the local newsagent, sometimes I create cards and I just don't have an envelope to match, this time I measured the envelope and made the card to match.
I tied the ribbon and charm with black thread and added beads, they look like olives in the top of the glass, unfortunately it is a bit hard to see in this photo.
