This is how the child of one of my Elite Stamper buddies described today and I think it is fantastic!! So in honour of this day I did make a card to give to my husband. I was mucking around with some ATCs I am making for a swap and while I was cleaning my aqua painter I noticed a lovely pattern appearing on my grid paper. It looked so pretty I thought I would try it on some watercolour paper and this card is the end result. I hope he liked it! I was very lucky and received a Pandora bracelet this morning, I love them and now thanks to my lovely valentine I have one!
So here is the card

Here are a couple of cards I made this morning for my nieces, whose birthday brunch we are attending tomorrow morning. Katie is 6 (a couple of weeks ago) and Mia will be 2 next week. The boys love playing with Katie, especially Alex as they are the same age.
So I cheated a little bit with the cards as I used some Basic Grey patterned paper, my other addiction (apart from Stampin’ Up!) is Basic Grey – I just love their products! I also cheated by making them the same card but I did really like the design.
So here they are.
I used Rose Red, Regal Rose, Sage Shadow and Vintage Violet cardstock. The ‘K’ and ‘M’ are from the Big Deal Alphabet and Beyond the Basics set for the background, using Elegant Eggplant and Pixie Pink ink. One thing I really like about the Colour Families is that they do blend well even outside the family. I would normally use the same ink and cardstock for the background to make it subtle but in this case I didn’t have the Rose Red ink so I had to use Pixie Pink, and it still works!
