Thank You's are due..........

Despite the rain last night it is still feeling like spring, even though the temperature is less than it was and far less than it is on the mainland! Heard on the wireless that Brisbane was going to be 33 degrees today and its only August (still winter). Well, it is only 10 degrees here at the moment but the sun is shining and there is no wind - pretty!

Been making 'Thank You' cards and practicing techniques all in the one go. Cased both cards - one from Lynda Moss (my SU supplier) and one from Michelle Zindorf's site. I have wanted to have a go at brayering but am still very bad at it (and sponging). However, here they are:




This card is made from all Stampin Up items unless otherwise stated: card is glossy white, and uses Uppsy Daisy stamp for flowers and sentiment; One of a Kind stamp is used for 'sun'; both flowers and sun are stamped with VersaMark and then Basic Black and clear embossed. The inks used are So Saffron; Summer Sun; Tangerine Tango and Taken with Teal, as well as StayzOn Timber Brown; Card is Black; mount is Only Orange and Tempting Turquoise.




This card is on SU Handsome Hunter, and then Brilliant Blue; the flowery paper is DCWV Adhesive Paper Prints Sticker Paper; the stamp is SU Oh, So Lovely, coloured in (badly) with SU markers on waterproof paper; sentiment SU Warmest Regards; stamped outlines with StayzOn Black; ricrac ribbon from the stash. The circles were cut using SU punches.

Hi Susan,

I think your first go at brayering worked out pretty well! Thanks for visiting my blog, you can find a link in my card recipe (Bizzy Becs) where you can find those Phillip head brads. If you can't find them just email Bec and ask - she is very helpful. Here is the link again.
