Just nipping in by the skin of my teeth to join in with Hels’ birthday challenge, which is EYES.


Congratulations to Hels and to all the Sunday Stampers Devotees on lasting FOUR YEARS!  Wow!  Long may it continue.


I got the Paperartsy stamps out for this one – and realised just how much I’ve neglected those gorgeous stamps – and killed two birds with one stone by making my card in greens, to fit in with the  Gingersnap Colour Challenge, which is Gorgeous Greens.

I’ve had a bit of a crafting frenzy the last two days and have been stealing odd moments when I can to do a bit more – definitely withdrawal symptoms!  So I made another gorgeous green entry, using a background I had already made. The card itself is a really gorgeous shade of sea green but it looks almost turquoise here – I give up on scans!  New printer this week, so I hope it scans more realistically!

It feels so good to be stamping but I’ll be panicking tomorrow because I have to fit all my prep into one and a half days – eek!
See you soon!

Cath, those stamps ARE gorgeous, what a remarkable piece--you definitely hit both of those challenges! No wonder you made another beautiful card--the first one turned out so well, why stop???

Gorgeous cards Cath, but then they would be being green, but I really love the top one.

Glad you've been able to steal some playtime.

Beauties! Love your stamping. Hey, Cath, do you have a 'subscribe by email' button here? I'd love to because I don't want to miss when you have new content and I am awful about keeping up with Reader.

Wow Cath these are wonderful.
Amazing colors and stamps. Fantastic work.

What a beautifull cards you made!!
The green one looks mysterious and the blue one reminds me of a blue sky on a sunny day and laying down in a meadow (while it's snowing a bit outside:)
So they are both gorgious.
Love Gery

Love both of these. And don't you just hate it when the scan doesn't show the right colour. You should see me (when I have the time!) crawling and climbing all over my craft room, camera in hand, trying to find THE spot that will show the true colour, lol. xx
