Super Wednesday!

Well, somehow I managed to get Leo, AKA Velcro Baby, to sleep for 3 hours solid this afternoon without being glued to me. I kept thinking I'd never get the next project finished, but I kept managing it. So I made 5 cards! Wooo! And in fact, I'd done two others earlier in the week so I am about to update you on 7 cards....

First up: 100.11 was a repeat of 100.10 (the Christmas mittens). So you don't need to see that.

100.12 was another Christmas card:

All I can say is BLEURGH!!! Don't like this at all. I think it's the button. These wooden buttons will be available from SU! from June 1st, I got them in the pre-order (one of the many perks of being a demo!). I am actually not a big fan of them though coz I can't figure out how to use them, and they are a bit plasticky looking somehow. Everything else SU! makes is awesome though! :D

Supplies: Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla cardstock, Jolly Holiday DSP, Linen thread, Wooden button, Chock-full of Cheer stamp set.

Onto 100.13:

This was for a colour challenge on Splitcoast: Blushing Bride, Certainly Celery, Soft Suede. I cheated and used Rose Red too as I couldn't find any ribbon in the given colours. I also did a bit of paper piecing with the leaves to give them a bit of dimension by curling them at the edges. And I cut into the bird's wings, again for a bit of dimension.

Supplies: Rose Red seam binding ribbon, Basics Jewels: Pearls, Whisper White, Certainly Celery and Blushing Bride cardstock, Soft Suede, Certainly Celery, Blushing Bride and Rose Red ink, Betsy's Blossoms and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets.

100.14 was a repeat of the 100.4 hummingbird card.

Getting worried I'll lose my post so I'll upload this, then do another!


  1. I like 100.12. I think the button gives it a little extra texture. You've inspired me to make a few Christmas cards.

    And I am in love with 100.13! I love the big blushing bride flower. Is that Stampin up? I really need to check this Stampin Up stuff out...

    Great job today! You're a card-making machine!

  2. I love the bird one... is that one for sale?
