and one that my friend Nicki made. The idea is great but there is a fair bit of work in figuring it out. I used mellow moss, bashful blue and pretty in pink and of course black. The blue is stamped with canvas background. What do you think?

I used the Petals and Paisley DP from SU and also Old Olive, Basic black and Whisper white. The stamp set is In Full Bloom and the greeting is from Its your Birthday. Inks used are regal Rose, Old Olive, Cool Carribean, So Saffron and Taken with Teal.
This is the first time I have done any of the challenges on SCS. It was fun and I plan to do some more.

I cased the main piece of these 3 cards from a card on SCS. I then used Pretty In Pink, Basic Black and Regal Rose to complete the 3 cards. I used the bouquet roller to do the backgrounds. I just used scraps from each sheet to complete them. I embossed the rose and also the greeting. As I didnt take my embossing buddy with me the embossing of the greetings is a little flecky. I really do like this set so I hope they dont retire it when the new catalogue comes out in April.

We had a lovely holiday away in a unit overlooking the ocean at Rockingham. This was the sunset on our first night there.
These are the Little Penguins that we saw while over on Penguin Island. We went over on our own boat and went to see the penguins being fed. They are so cute. The holiday was very relaxing for me and I really enjoyed a walk on the beach each evening after it cooled off.
For this card I have used Regal Rose and Whisper White card and stamped with Pretty in Pink, Black and Old Olive. The flowers are coloured using re-inkers and a paint brush. I have used Pretty In Pink. The flowers and leaves are cut out and I have joined the 2 flowers together with a Barely Banana brad and raised it on a dimensional. Let me know what you think.

I forgot to post on here that I am away for the first 10 days of January on holiday. I have been down in Rockingham, really enjoying our beach holiday. Today we have popped home for a couple of things we thought we could do with and so I thought Id better pop in and say hi. I have made a couple of cards so far and have planned out my next 2 techniques for Stamp Club, when I get back. We will be doing Faux Tearing and one we have done before, but not on the technique sheet. Faux Stitching. I'm looking forwad to getting back into the card making groove.
I will post some more when I get back.
