A Trio of Cards for Simply Create.

On Friday night at long last I managed to make some cards with my latest kit for Simply Create. I know I've said before that I was a bit out of my comfort zone but this time I was really far out of it. I looked in the box when my kit finally arrived through the snow last month and just thought "oh help" and shut the box again. I still had loads of Christmas cards to make so that was a good excuse to leave it alone! But on Friday evening I ran out of excuses and just had to try to make some cards.

This is what I came up with!! The DP and stamps are all Glitz Designs.

The birdcage is a lovely stamp and I added some punched flowers and a Tim Holtz ticket.

The green spotty with flowers in the corner is part of a 12x12 sheet. Ideal for scrapbooking but I'm not a scrapbooker! I added the birdcage again and another Tim Holtz ticket.
This last one is made from a love notes page and the dogtooth border at the top is a stamp. I finished off with some bobbly trim, card candy, ribbon and a button.

I still have a whole sheet of DP unused plus some other bits and pieces so I might manage to make some more cards!

Has anyone seen Jacqui's new shop yet? The original shop was gorgeous and very well stocked with everything you could  possibly want but now she has moved along the street to 59, Main Street, Alford. Lots more space for goodies now and a special space for classes.

Doesn't this look amazing?!!

Jacqui is having a special day on 22nd January to celebrate the opening of the new shop. Kath will be there at the "Creation Station" demoing some of the new stamps from Hero Arts and you could even have a play with some of the new stamps too. Even better there will be 10% off Hero Arts that day. So hope to see you there between 10.30am and 3.30pm .

Don't forget Saturday 22nd January at Simply Create, 59, Main St., Alford.

Thanks for looking.
