I love "Mosaic" style whether it be in tiles and grout or cardstock and adhesive - the effect is always a "popper"!! Love these bright & cheery colours especially with all the "RAIN" we've had all week!!
Just like kids we just have to play with new "toys" if we are lucky enough to have them. I was lucky enough at "Convention" to win some of the new products coming out in the new Stampin' Up catalogue on September 1. Can't wait to actually see the new IB&C but in the meantime I can enjoy some of the new DSP and stamp sets.

This is my first attempt at watercolouring, I must still have that "Beatrix Potter" fever - I've moved from farm animals to watercolours!! Anyway I must say I really enjoyed it!! I have had this beautiful Stampin' Up "Summer by the Sea" stamp set for quite some time but it is an old favourite and I have only ever "chalk coloured" it but now I have finally watercoloured it and I must say I prefer it done this way! I love the little verse on the two children's cards - I "cased" the verse from a card I saw on splitcoast and thought it really suited these cards.

I came up with my "three little wishes" card because I have just recently bought the Stampin' Up Brights Designer Buttons to play with and they go well with Celebrations DSP. The Christmas card was obviously a spin off from the birthday card. Quick, easy and fun!!

A big thank you - Dotty Decor - for making my beautiful marker rolls to put my Stampin' Write Markers in!! They are perfect! I loved picking my favourites materials from your wonderful selection of designer fabrics. So to thank you I made you a Dotty Decor Stationery Box filled with personalised "thank you" cards for your business. I know you are too busy sewing and filling your orders to have much time to make your own so I hope you like these!! The cards were actually quite quick and easy with my new Stampin' Up Movers & Shapers die.
It was my friend's birthday the other day and I was having one of those "tight budget" type weeks so I bought two chocolate bars and made the rest of the present with Stampin' Up products!! Even the flowers! So that also saved my purse and she loved the whole gift set!!
