I have done a really simple card again this week as life is pretty hectic preparing for the upcoming school holidays and my trip to Brisbane Onstage Live..

Here is what I came up with using a new set that is in our holiday catalogue.


We have finally got a new camera.... now I need to learn how to use it as it is very very different to our last one.

The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge 99

Welcome from Mercia's blog this week.


http://richesstitches.blogspot.com.au/2015/03/the-artful-stampers-blog-hop-22.html


This week is sketch week


My son had his 4th birthday on the 14th of August so I used this sketch for his card.
I couldn't fit all the circles in it but there is no correct way to interpret a sketch
It wasn't quite how I thought it would turn out but he loved it anyway!

Here is his card



I turned one of the circles from the sketch into a peek hole with a T Rex inside the card...

He loves dinosaurs and I love this set!
  • Stamps: No Bones About It
  • Ink:  Memento Black, Emerald Envy, Pumpkin Pie & Tempting Turquoise
  • Card: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Emerald Envy and Festive Birthday DSP
  • Tools: Large Numbers Dies and Layering Circles Dies with the Bigshot Machine
  • Embellishments:  Dimensionals
