Changing days

There can't have been two more opposite days than yesterday and today weather-wise - yesterday it was dull, grey and poured all day long. To counteract that I baked bread, stayed in the warm and excitedly waited for my box of Stampin Up goodies from the new catalogue - what a box of treasures!!! You'll be seeing a lot of my new stash in days to come!

And then today - the most brilliant, warm autumn day you could wish for! The fabulously blue skies meant I could get some photography assignments under my belt down in Devon. I did have a chance to play with my new SU goodies first thing this morning and will post them tomorrow.

For now here are a few recent cards. A birthday card for Jenny, one of my SU downlines..Happy Birthday Jenny!


Recipe:

Stamps - Crazy for Cupcakes
Card - Kraft/Night of Navy/Certainly Celery/So Saffron DSP

Other - Certainly Celery ribbon/scallop edge punch/Nestabilities/Cuttlebug/Copic markers/Stickles


This is my sample for today's Inspiration and Themes Challenge on In Love With Stamping - the theme is congratulation so I made a card for a friend who's just had a baby boy:


Recipe:

Stamps - Queue Up
Card - Whisper White/Bashful Blue/Brocade Blue
Other - Copic markers/gingham ribbon


Thanks for stopping by!
