A bit more pick of the bunch


Using the Corncockle Punch and Stamp set, Memory Box leaves, Chocolate Baroque Indian and background stamps, Artistic Outpost sentiment, Dylusions and TH birdcage

Good Morning Peeps, hope you are all having a good week.

We still have lovely sunshine here, two days on the trot with my craft room French windows open is unheard of lately, but if the weather man's got it right it will be back to woolies come Friday so better make the most of it I guess.

I really could make card with Ruth Tonic Pick of the Bunch products all day, so as I have quite a few in my gallery though it only right I shared a few more with you before I get my head down and make a start of samples ready for the next Stamp Addicts show on C&C.......some really fabby stamps coming up, can't say more at the moment but I will let you have some sneak peeks very soon.

Using the Rose Punch and stamp Set, Chocolate Baroque Indain stamp set, Memory Box leaves, Pan Patels and a spritz of Glimmer Mist

I know from your messages lots of you have recently bought the Punch and Stamp sets and I just know you are going to have great fun using them, they really have revolutionised the ability to create pretty flowers to embellish our cards........thank you Ruth.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew - Handmade Flowers
Die Cutting Divas - Flowers
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Colour
Dream Valley - Things with Wings

Have a good Wednesday and thanks as always for dropping in.

Paula (PEP) said...

Your second card just has me gasping & I love your use of the CB stamps in that, especially when coupled with the black & the striking patterned paper. I love the beads you've used in the first - really giving an oriental feel to the design with the CB domes along the base.

AnyOldCraft said...

These are really beautiful cards Brenda.
Sunshine. Isn't it just fabulous the way it lifts your whole spirits ?
The hubster has been weeding and planting for me (getting very good at following my instructions LOL) and doing a wonderful job. I really hate that I can't get down to do it myself.
Shame we are ony being teased with the weather though.
21 today and back to 8 by Sunday LOL
Have a good day hun and enjoy the sunshine :)

scrappymo! said...

Oh Brenda, two more beauties! I love them both but think the colours in the first one are calling to me! teehee

I do so appreciate the bliss of having a neighbour who papercrafts. She is my daughters age, has little children and is kept very busy with them...I think it is bliss for her too as she is so ready for them to be in bed and her to have some adult conversation by the end of the day!

I might trade you my typical Vancouver area home though...5,000 to 7.000 foot lots, always overlooked, $750,000 for an "ordinary house" and well over a million and a half to get a wee potage stamp bit of land. DD struggles to try and eventually end up with a couple of acres. They have a lovely home now but dream of acreage to keep a pony!

Juls said...

such stunning cards!! Hugs Juls

Anita Houston said...

Both of these are gorgeous! I love the background of the first...much to see, and the brights are fun! The dangling beads really caught my eye! Thank you for sharing your true colors with us this week here at Simon Says Stamp & Show!

Crafty Lark said...

Loved all your gorgeous cards since my last visit,also the super doggie photos, my that is a lot of dog. Special hugs to you as I have read of your health scare. Always important to have the correct tools, I do love my bigshot but do wish there was a really good electronic one available, mind you we do get power cuts. xx Flora

Ellie said...

Such amazing creations Brenda, especially loving all the details on the first card, and such beautiful colors! The second card is really pretty too, gorgeous color combo, and love those roses!
