Just For You!

Morning all!

Long time no see!


Well I am back from my wedding/honeymoon. I have had the most fabulous 2 weeks in Mexico with 16 of my closest friends and family, an unforgettable experience for all of us! Just a shame I had to come home, but at least I have returned to some unseasonably mild weather!


Today I have a card to share to with you that I made a few weeks ago for a friends birthday. I think its amazing what a change in colours can do to an image . I used the just believe image some time ago to create
this card at one of my friend Julies card classes. For today's card I used brighter colours to create more of a summery feel!




Materials

CS: SU Melon Mambo, Whisper White

Paper:
SU Pattern Designer series in Pumpkin Pie

Sentiment:
SU Afterthoughts set (Level 1 Hostess set

Stamps: SU 'Just Believe', Butterfly image from 'So Happy' sale-a-bration set

Tools:
SU spritzer tool, SU stampin markers


I love using my SU markers to apply colour directly to my stamps, it enables you to get some stunning effects. As you can also see, I am still enjoying my spritzer tool to help me to create backgrounds, such a useful addition to your craft collection.

Well thanks for stopping by today. I will leave you with a couple of my wedding pics of me and my handsome new husband.




Hugs, Vicky (AKA Mrs Tate)
