Hi everyone!

WOW! How excited am I? Yep, pretty much!

SO, I'm still excited as I was invited to be a

Hi everyone!

I used my Ranger dye ink to stamps the sweet little stitched flower, button and leaf images for the background of my card. I then die cut the flowers, leaves and little button from plain white paper to add to my card.  I die cut the circle from an unbranded die and then stamped the 'we LOVE YOU' in the blue ink.  I finished my card off with a few iridescent sequins.  I love this card as the colours are really as vibrant as you see here- and of course, I love anything Wplus9 so it's an all round win for me!  This card will be heading off to my Sister!

Just a side note regarding the Ranger inks -which I sincerely LOVE - I purchased them in a UK online store, for a fabulous price - click the link if you've been thinking about purchasing some - they were on offer and selling fast.( At the time of this blog posting, there were not many ink pads left but lots of re-inkers in stock).

So, that's it for now.  Look out for my next post (Saturday) I have some exciting news to share!

In the meantime, take care,

Until next time,

Leaves so bright!

Good Morning, all :)

Hope you are having a good start to your day?

These two cards below, were posted on over at my Instagram account - the second pic was posted with a caution - that's so bright! lol

I have been enjoying playing with the Autumn Morning, rustling leaves stamps from Crafter's Companion UK.  I've created cards with traditional Autumn colours but on these two cards, I fancied a change - Oh my...seriously, they are as bright at they look.  I used Ranger Dye inks to stamp these leaves and I have to say I LOVE these inks! The background of the second card was made using Distress inks.  I'm calling that card my 'Tree of Hope' - I shall be framing it & placing it on my craft room wall.

I hope my cards have 'brightened' your day ;-)

I would like to include my first card into the following challenges:

Thanks for dropping by,

Until next time,
