A Play on Words.......

Hi Everyone,

Just finished this card last night & thought I'd enter it in "Less is More" as their challenge is anything "Aqua". Ok, well for one it's aqua coloured, second it was simple to put together, third it became a play on words... think of the star sign we are in at the moment??????? ok, I made it sound a bit like "Aquarius"... very apt, huh? Oh yeah & I made the card look like a shop front.
Yes, I know parts are a little lame, but hey we all gotta start somewhere, right?
I found an offcut of Aqua card, used to nesting rectangles in different sizes to cut out the door & window. I then had a couple of offcut corregated card laying around so added them with some foam dots to make them look like they are awnings of a shop.


Stampin' Up! meets my Embroidery.

Hi All,        

         I made this card using my computerized embroidery machine for the chicken, then frayed the edges. Glue tacked it onto an A4 size Stampin' Up! new In Colour- Island Indigo, fairly simple, but that's why I did it like that.... I left the base vacant so when it was required for use I could put the sentiment on then. I also decided to place this card into "Less is More" for their weekly challenge of "Aqua" being the design for this week. You can see this card at

Enjoy, there are a large collection for this colour this week.

Stampin' Up! Punches & "The open Sea" on boxes

 Just having a bit of a play around, I found that a box that had note paper in it had fallen apart so used it as a template & made another one in a smaller template I made as well. I used some bits & pieces I had left from another project for the box with the birds.
The other box has the map of the earth on 3 sides & a compass on the front, these stamps are from "the Open Sea", a new set out at this time. I amtrying to think of other things to do with my sets for a change. I hope you enjoy looking at them... I certainly enjoyed making them!
