Best Fishes

Good Morning,

I decided to play along in a challenge that I haven't joined in with for a while, The Card Concept. When I first looked at the colours nothing sprung to mind, however with a stroke of luck I bought a stamp set off the wonderful Caryn Davis which fitted the bill perfectly. Well as least I think so.

Supplies Used:
Simon Says Stamp - Best Fishes (Stamp set & mask)
Glossy Accents
Ink Dusters

Supplies Used:
Stampin Up - Giggle Greetings

Now it's over to you guys, I can't wait to see what Clean and Simple ideas you all come up with this week, but before you get started have a quick visit round the rest of the Design Team for further inspiration.

Good Luck Owl

Good Evening,

I am back with a second card for today, as the Muse card by Marion Vagg was just the inspiration I was needing to make a Good Luck card for a friend starting a new job.  My friend loves all things owls so that was the main aspect I took as inspiration.

Supplies Used:
Clearly Besotted - You're A Hoot 2
Clearly Besotted - A Little Sentimental
Clearly Besotted - Tag Your It
Avery Elle - DP
Papermania - Bird Song

And here is Marion's super cute card

Thanks so much for visiting

Make The Day Special Challenge

Good Morning,

Over at Make the Day Special they have an interesting challenge on this month. They are asking us to CASE a card from our first year of crafting/blogging.  It was quite a trip down memory lane looking at old cards I have made and some of them are truly awful!

In the end I chose one which I didn't mind so much, but my CASing of it went totally off in a different direction, but hopefully you can see where I got my inspiration.

First up my new card.

Supplies Used:
Avery Elle - Party Animal
Lil Inkers - Stitched Mats

And my old card

Singing in the Rain

Good Afternoon,

This week's Less Is More challenge was a real puzzler for me, the theme is 'Singing in the Rain'. And I couldn't think of anything really that would be suitable.  However a little trawl through my stamps helped come up with a few things that I could use to focus on the 'rain' part of the theme.

Supplies Used:
Uniko Studio - Bright Butterflies
Stampin Up - Pocket Silhouettes
Clearly Besotted - Home Sweet Home
Clearly Besotted - A Little Sentimental
Poppy Stamps - Grand Madison Window Die

Wave the Flag

Good Morning,

It's a dumb dull day here in the north east of Scotland, we have been getting gorgeous sunshine lately so for the rain to appear again is a bit of a disappointment.

My card today is combining a couple of challenges, don't you love it when that happens!

Supplies Used:
Papertrey Ink Die (Used as a mask)
Stampin Up ink
Ink Dusters
Uniko Studio - All Occasions #3
Clearly Besotted - Full Steam Ahead (Star Stamp)

Challenges Entered:

CAS on Sunday - One Layer Wonder

One Layer Simplicity Challenge - Wave the Flag. We have been asked to use our countries flag as inspiration for our cards.  Since I class myself as both Scottish & British I had two flags to choose from.  I noticed from the gallery there were a number of red, white & blue flags already so I went with the Scottish Saltire as my inspiration.  I used the blue & white as my inspiration however rather than a flat blue I decided to create a ombre effect.  Wow that was a long explanation!
