For Your Shower - Stampin' Up - Greetings Eight and Darcies...


Sharing with you quickly today, is this Baby shower notecard.  I have stamped and coloured the little duck image from Darcies stamps, used mounting tape to mount it and the umbrella from Stampin' Up's set - Greetings Eight.


With a white card base, a pink cardstock layer and spotty patterned paper this notecard is very girly! Finishing touches were two lengths of ribbon across the bottom and rhinestones in each corner. 

So cute!

Golf Cart Cards... Memory Box


We are going a little bit sporty with our cards today - well we are off to play golf! How cute are these golf buggies and the little flags??

Using a Memory Box die, I die cut three different coloured buggies and have mixed the colours of the wheels etc over the three cards.

I hand cut the green cardstock for the 'course', colouring the edges with a sponge for depth.

I then strategically placed the buggies and the flags - "Over the Hill"

Very cute!
Thanks for visiting,
