I’m not feeling blue at all, but there are a couple of ‘Blue’ or ‘Frosty Colour’ challenges around and I thought I’d share some of my latest cards.…




More pink than blue, perhaps…


This one’s clean and simple…


…and this is a page in my journal from yesterday…


…which I really liked, so I made a card the same way. Just goes to show how much difference gesso and a bit of white paint makes. I changed the words because I wasn’t too impressed with the way the first two stamped when I used them. They are still there, but in gold ink, so you can’t see them on this. There’s a lot of gold on this card…mainly crackles but you can’t see them in the photo.


I’ll enter one of these into the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge – No Patterned papers

That’s Crafty Challenges – Feeling Blue

Stamping Sensations – Cold and Frosty Colours

Addicted to Stamps – Clean and Simple

Try It On Tuesday – My Favourite Things

Frilly and Funky – Three of Something

Country View Challenges – Anything Goes

I’ll be back soon.

Thanks for looking!



PS I’m unable to upload at the moment – Bad Gateway????!? I’ll try again later…x

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog - the quote is from vivalasvegastamps.
I like your reading bird a lot - and the fire-coloured card at the bottom of your post.

Hi Cath, love your cards, especially the Raven reading a book! Where on earth did you find that stamp? Would love to own one... I am just getting my new blog up and running and would love to have you pop over sometime for a visit! Hugs for now from very brrrrrr New Hampshire from across the pond :D

Wow! What a feast for the eyes! I loved seeing all the gorgeous blues and purples you did here and how the colors are blended so elegantly. I also liked the repetition of floral themes, which are so refreshing to see during January! Each card and journal page was original and lovely and I'm so glad you took the time to share your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

Hoping to mail you but as yet found no bio/link, was just to say not sure if you realise you have a block set on your blog - that means should you be a winner you entry can't be lifted so can't be considered.
