It Has Taken Me A While ...

... to get these photos taken and posted!

Here are some cards I made a couple of weeks back. The first two use On a Pedestal, which is quite a different stamp style to my usual but I like the way the images and sentiments stack and match. Mind you, my purchase was influenced by DH loving a sample of this I brought home from stamp camp - that's a first! LOL!

Love the colour combo here of rich razzleberry, marina mist and pear pizzazz.

The second one is more masculine colours of cajun craze, marina mist and garden green. The background stamp (from level 1 hostess set Afterthoughts) says 'Happy Birthday. Call when it's time for cake' which I thought fitted perfectly!

Then I got to playing with Aviary from the Summer mini. I just adore this set and love all the great samples I have seen on blogs everywhere. My first is a simple design and I've added a touch of bling to each birdcage - but it doesn't show in this small sized version of the photo! (click to enlarge if you want to see the bling)

Secondly some pear pizzazz, poppy parade and concord crush (all in colours) with my fav embossing folder of the moment, square lattice.

The next card we made in classes last week and lo and behold! it's the square lattice again with some more marina mist and rich razzleberry, this time with a touch of daffodil delight.

And lastly a Christmas card cased from the talented Lisa Young. Lisa used the music wheel on her background paper, but I don't have that so I have embossed it instead with a non SU music notes embossing folder. LOVE the cherry cobbler!!!

Thanks for stopping by and as this is most likely my last post before Christmas, I'd like to wish you all a joyous festive season filled with all the people and things you love the most. If you are travelling, stay safe and take care.

Merry Christmas everyone.
