Congrats and thank yous

Today I'd like to officially welcome my new downline Rosy to Stampin Up - Rosy runs a fabulous monthly craft group in Bridgwater and I know will make a fabulous demonstrator. Welcome Rosy - I hope you have lots of fun!

Here's a card I made for Rosy to congratulate her, I wanted to keep things simple for a change!

Stamps - Forest Friends

Ink - Old Olive/Chocolate Chip markers

Card/Paper - Very Vanilla/Kraft/Old Olive DSP
Other - Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon/Linen Thread/brown button

And here's a bunch of quick thank yous for some ladies who recently placed orders with me - I love making single layer notecards with stamps, feeds my love of stationery :)

(All Stampin Up)
Stamps - Wonderful Words/Close as a Memory

Ink - Handsome Hunter and Ruby Red markers
Card - Very Vanilla/Handsome Hunter

And finally... here's my entry for the current Stamp With Us recipe challenge which is to use 2 x patterned paper, 4 x brads and 1 x ribbon:

I used an old Mojo Monday sketch that I've been meaning to try out. The base of the cupcake is paper pieced with the same Junior Varsity paper.

(All Stampin Up unless stated)
Stamps - Crazy for Cupcakes/Circle of Friendship

Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black

Card/Paper - Rose Red/Whisper White/So Saffron/Junior Varsity papers
Other - So Saffron brads/Very Vanilla grosgrain/Copic markers/scallop , 1 1/4 inch and 1 3/8 in circle punches

Thanks for visiting - I'll be back later with some blog candy!!

Congrats on your new downline! I thought about doing Stampin' Up a few years ago but I am not organized for it. Sometimes, I am bummed when I think about it.

Any hoo, your cards are great! Even when you do simple it looks lovely.
