Thanks so much!

Good morning all!

Only two days left and then it's the weekend! Yay! I am soooo looking forward to a lie in!

Today I though I'd share with you a card I made for my mum. I know she has received it now so it's safe to show you! I was inspired to make this card from a card I had seen Carole had made, so thanks Carole for the inspiration! I just loved the idea of using pink with brown and green for the tree's, something I hadn't thought would necessarily work before I saw Carole's card.

So here it is:


Materials

CS: SU Melon Mambo, Choc Chip, Kraft (Crumb Cake) & Whisper White

Images: SU Trendy Tree's set

Sentiment: SU Trendy Tree's Set

Tools: SU Scalloped border punch, SU Stamp-a-ma-jig, Cropodile, Sponges for
distressing around the edges

Misc: SU ink in Old Olive, Choc Chip and Melon Mambo

I love this cute trendy tree's set. I got mine at christmas and just love this two step stamping technique, a stamp-a-ma-jig is a must though if you want to ensure your imagesoverlap/fit perfectly together. Those of you who know me will know how much of a perfectionist I am so the stamp-a-ma-jig is my must have tool!

This cute Trendy Tree's set is on offer this month from SU with 20% off for the month of August, so if you fancy this little set of stamps (8 in total, 2 of which are setiments), now is the perfect time to snap them up for only £10.36! If you would like to order this set I can recommend the wonderful Julie. Great friendly service!

Speaking of Julie, I went to another of her fab classes on tuesday night. I love our tuesday night group, such a great group of ladies where we can indulge in crafting, chatting, a cuppa and some cake, perfect! Thanks for a great night Jules!

That's all for me today folks, best get my skates on or else I'll be late for work!

Thanks for stopping by,

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
