Need a Lift?

Hi everyone thanks for dropping by to take a look at what I have been up to. Well I have had an extremely busy week so I have only had a chance to do one card this week. I have used Sunshine’s Stamps latest release – Cledus for my card. He is rather cute. The sentiment is particularly needed at our house this week, Michael has had a really tough week at work and my week hasn’t been that great either. But we did have 1 highlight which sometimes is all you need. Our DD had her 8th birthday. We had a great day celebrating but I will show you photos another day.

Back to Cledus. I have used this weeks Midnight Madness Sketch for the basis of my card.



Here is the recipe for the card.

Card Stock: Green cardstock unknown, Stampin’ Up Whisper White
Patterned Paper: Stampin’ Up Old Olive DSP
Ink: All Stampin’ Up colours – Blush Blossom, Pumpkin Pie, Yoyo Yellow, Ruby Red,
Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Sahara Sand, Going Grey,
Basic, Grey, Basic Black, Mellow Moss, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Always Artichoke.
Embellishments: antique brass eyelets, black half pearls, orange satin ribbon
Other: dimensionals, double sided tape, personal trimmer, Stampin’ Up curly label punch
Here is the sketch from Midnight Madness:
Hope you like the latest installment from Sunshine's Stamps. Don't forget to go over and have a look at what else she has to offer and also look at the DT blogs for more inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by.
Take Care
