Say it in white

At Annabelle stamps has asked "what can you do with white?

My God Daughter made her confirmation this evening and I thought what an excellent opportunity to try and come up with something that could provide an answer to the posed question - meet the challenge. I kind of used the current layout and used white with just a little embossed gold. I guess my answer laid in textures, white looks wonderful in textures. I also used that little swallow die cut from sizzix (i am so in love with it)....what do you think?

Tully's Birthday card

My beautiful second boy Tully turned 9 on Mother's day. Tully is robot mad and he LOVED this card. I used Cosmo Cricket paper (*sigh* I love cosmo). A cuttlebug folder and a wooden T i found laying around helped (remember I am using up scraps and stuff lying around).
The stamp was part of a cheapo set I bought from the reject shop (!!!!)

Happy Birthday Darling Tully xxxxxx

I am using this card for the Annabelle sketch challenge, they are the sweetest girls over there and I had soooo much fun last time, not to mention the wonderful encouragement from the gorgeous Annabelle design team girls....Hope it fits!

Using up the scraps

I am sure everyone has a box or two full of scrap card stock. I have three! I made a pledge this weekend that I use these up, if it meant casing my old cards (which were probably cased anyway LOL), making basic cards or getting really creative, I would rise to the challenge. Yesterday I made a heap but I can only show you two as a visitor last night left very happy clutching a handful of these cards. I now have 2 boxes and can't wait to get into these as I have promised myself as a reward some new goodies!!!!

These are using my new swallow die and some "stuff" floating around. The colours are pretty neutral using Stampin up Riverock, whisper white....I have reserved these for my friend who might want to use one of them as a Mother's Day card. Hope she likes them!
