Same stamp set.....

.....different image was used for today's card. The colours used are Really Rust, Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip. The set is called * Bloomin With Beauty*, I have used my SU ink pads and markers to watercolour this hydrangea head, firstly with Bashful blue and then with Ballet Blue for the darker colour and to add shading( click on the picture to see a close up). The terracotta pot was coloured using More mustard and Really Rust. The sketch with the three panels is one that I found on Beate s blog I think is number 59, and I used some Bashful Blue designer paper backed with Choc. Chip. There is a gorgeous blossom definition stamp in this set and I have used it to stamp on the lower half of my card with Really Rust, the sentiment was stamped using Choc Chip. What do you think? oh and have you spotted the little bee? he has glittered wings you know lol

I also wanted to tell you about a little something I am offering for Christmas, by now you will have all seen the new catalogue and you will have made your wish lists right? and if money was no object this lists would include the whole of the catalogue if you're like me lol. How would you like on this Christmas Day to get exactly what you want from that list but not knowing what exactly you are getting? Confused? let me explain. I am starting to offer a Christmas Wish List Service, you make a wish list from the catalogue and you email it to me along with your name, you then give my email address ( or my phone number) to all your loved ones that are asking what would you like for Christmas, between us we will then arrange your Christmas gift that I will ship to them nicely wrapped up with a lovely hand made tag ready for them to sign it and offer it to you on Chirstmas Day. Fabulous don't you think? takes the stress out of Christmas shopping for your loved ones and it ensures you will get something you love but it will be a total surprise as you don't know what from your list you will get. Interested? get in touch at and I will add you to my wish list service. Gosh I really feel like Santa s little helper although I m not that little, which is why I embarked on the diet of all times, hmm will see. .. Hugs Monica xxx
