I'm in a Hello Kitty mood...

I've managed to get a couple of hours in my craft room (I was meant to be sorting it out but kind of got side-tracked!!).
Anyway, this first card has been made with the inspiration from
Papertake Weekly Challenge which is to use black, white and one other colour.

This card has been made using the sketch from Sketch Saturday and I also added an embossed panel, so that fits in with the ABC Challenge which is E for Embossing!

It's been a while...

OK so I know it's been absolutely AGES since I put anything on here, but I've had to do a card for my brother's upcoming 40th birthday, and I needed some inspiration ...
so I opted for the BasicGrey Challenges which is Embossing as their challenge. While I was embossing a piece of BG grey sanded I managed to miss a strip down the side which I then covered over using a couple of pieces of ribbon, so what better 2nd challenge than the Stamp With Us challenge which is to use no patterened paper, 2 ribbons and 2 stamps. I cut out the "40" from some mount board, and then used 2 SU stamps - In the stars, the star and "a wish for you". I then utee'd the 40.
