Gosh, can you believe it is the last day in August?! Of course, that also means it's the last day of the August promotion, where you can earn the lovely Reason to Smile stamp set for absolutely free, and it's also the last day of the Summer Mini Catalogue. Sadly we have to say goodbye to those lovely sets such as Bordering on Romance, Apothecary Art, Love & Laughter, The Open Sea, Cherish the Moments, Up, Up & Away, Pedal Presents, Tea Shoppe........ as well as the wonderful Twitterpated paper range, scented embossing powder and more. So this really is the last minute if you want any of these goodies for your collection! Just send me an email or give me a ring on 07977 141605.
Now I've done the sales pitch (!), here is another card using my Reason to Smile set:
I stamped a piece of white card with two of the flowers from Reason to Smile. The outlines were all done in Concord Crush. The second layer of stamping of the smaller flowers is Wisteria Wonder, while I used Peach Parfait for the larger flower, adding in more detail with my Peach Parfait and More Mustard marker pens. The greeting is from Trendy Trees, stamped in VersaMark and embossed in white. I layered the top panels of Concord Crush card on dimensionals to set them above the stamping.
Stamps: Reason to Smile, Trendy Trees
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, marker pens in Peach Parfait and More Mustard
Card: Concord Crush, Whisper White
Other: stamp-a-ma-jig, VersaMark, white embossing powder, dimensionals
I must be psychic as I was making this card this morning, and then the Daring Cardmakers' new challenge 'Focus on Flowers' pops up as I'm about to post! Clearly it was meant to be!
Reading through yesterday's comments on the food was quite funny. If I were to accept every request to move into my house, it would be very full indeed! In all seriousness, the recipes were not difficult to follow and they are really tasty so do give them a go.
Today's cat picture is another one sent by Anne-Marie, which did make me chuckle:
Thanks for visiting, my friends,
