I m seeing scallop border punches

.........and I will probably see them in my sleep tonight as well. LOL. My preorders have been delivered today so it meant I had to do a lot of packing, the good news is that if you preordered them from me they have all been shipped today so fingers crossed you might get yours tomorrow. Now if you preordered from your local demo and they ve not arrived be patient, they will arrive, the new catalogue is full of fab product and a big numbers of orders have been placed so far, SU warehouse is working like crazy to get those orders out so I am sure it won't be long, trust me it is worth it!!! I thought you might like to see this

I knew you guys would love those lol, I really loved seeing so many of them on my kitchen table if only for a few hours( oh and this were the contents of one box only I had two of them * smiles*) I have also been busy stamping a card for each of the pre orders so your package will contain one of those little gems. I wasn't so fond of them by the time I finished I have to say lol but I love how they turned up and I hope you will too.

I have chose an old favorite combo, Bashful Blue, Regal Rose, Rose Red and Old Olive, the stamp set is called * Live Your Dream* and is a new one for 2008-2009. I have used my markers to colour in the flowers, for the heads I ve used Regal Rose then went around the outside with the Rose Red marker, Bravo Burgundy for the center, Old Olive for the stem and leaves, Bashful Blue for the butterflies and Bravo Burgundy for the sentiment.

Here s a close up so you can better see

This technique adds depth to your image and really makes it pop. I love my markers and I use them a lot, just look at the coverage they give.. perfect every time, this is what's so great about SU the quality is second to none.

Ooooh I also have got some big personal news to share with you, not crafting related but wanted to share as I want to remember the date forever, tonight in my regular chats with Luca ( we speak every day he loves to hear voices over the phone and gets very excited) he called my name for the first time...Do you know just how happy that made me????? VERY !!!!

Ok it wasn't on his own accord he just repeated what his mummy said when she asked him *** Who s that darling, Moni?**** and he repeated a very clear Noni, me and my sis both shrieked at the same time ** Did you hear that??*** I definitely did and it filled my heart with joy, my little nephew is learning names...too cool.

  1. ooooooo those colours in you cards are GORGEOUS! Did you roll around in the scallop punches? lol

  2. Hi Monica, the cards are wonderful!! The clour combo is great. I think I will cover it and then I will give you credit.
    bye Irene

  3. I'm so chuffed to hear about Luca! Sounds like a lovely day-loads of post (though hard work sorting it all out-what a star) and then Luca saying your name-on the phone too! that's even harder than if you were there! I see the worlds going to be scalloped now! Scalloped curtains, carpets, toast, fringes and just about anything that stands still long enough!

  4. Beautiful cards, love the colours x


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment, I really apreciate it as I love hearing from you. Hugs Monica xxx
