Long Time No Blog!

Hi All, 

I am soooo sorry that I have been a bad blogger yet again! I have been and still am quite busy catching up on some Uni work that I was given an extension for. I managed this week to find a little time to do the HA 'colour' challenge this week.

The first card I made was using the hot pink, lime green & soft pink colour combination. I made this simple birthday card for my best friend at work as it's her birthday next week.

Card: Whisper White, Hot Pink & Soft Pink
Ink: Colorbox Chalks
Stamps: HA DB Birthday, HA CD Share Laughter
Accessories: HA Flower Gems, SU! Whisper White grosgrain ribbon

The second card I made was using the pumpkin orange, yellow & purple blue colour combination. I will probably send this to my best friend from school :) 

Card: SU! Pumpkin Pie & Sunshine Yellow
Ink: StazOn Royal Purple
Stamps: HA CD Fantastic Flourishes, HA CD Share Laughter
Accessories: Yellow Satin Ribbon, HA Crystal Gems, Got Flowers? SU! Pumpkin Pie Designer Papers

I really enjoyed making both these cards and I was able to use some of my brand new Stampin' Up! products that I received on Monday through the post. I was soooo lucky enough to find  a SU! demonstrator in my town, literally 5 minutes down the road! 

I have seen SU! products all over and have wanted to get my hands on them for ages. The UK catalogue is good but nowhere near as good as the US! I just really like how the ribbon, card stock and designer papers all co-ordinate.  I still LOVE Hero Arts but a girl has to splash out on other things now and then!

I getting way excited now as it is only 4 weeks until we are on our holidays and off to Florida. I can't wait to shop in all the lovely craft shops and Michael's etc..!!!!!

Well, I have been quite bad today and not done a scrap of college work so I had better go and get a couple of things ready so I can do plenty tomorrow before we go to Karl's Mam's for lunch. 

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope to post another couple of cards I have made for the HA 'colour' challenge tomorrow.

I like the pair of cards you did for the color challenge! I especially like the slanted angles you used on the "friends" card! It is inspired! :-)
