Hello Love for The Paper Craft Crew

Welcome to a wild, wintery and wet Wednesday in Melbourne! Yes, some might say "its about time" especially those looking to ski for the School Holidays starting this coming weekend :-) And those people would be happy - with Mt Bulla catching 50mm of snow overnight. As you might now have guessed….I am NOT one of those people!!!! So lets look at this week's sketch from The Paper Craft Crew instead :-)

An interesting sketch….and here is my take on it:

There are several "Sneak Peeks" of products that will be available in the new Catalogue from July 1.
Firstly, the colours are based on the beautiful Moonlight DSP stack - perfectly sized for card fronts :-) and I also added some more of the new In Colours. And then there is the stamp set - a Hostess set which is just so cute! The "A little birdie told me" saying was a favourite in our household and so I know this is going to get plenty of use :-) And of course with wintery colours outside, I had to work to make the sun shine inside instead  - and this was easy using the new Blendabilities markers  - and some Bling of course :-)

As you can see, I only used one of the Word Bubbles in the sketch - replacing the other with the Sun image. And the three circles at the bottom left have been replaced with some scattered Basic Rhinestones.

Card stock: Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White
Designer Series paper: Moonlight Designer series stack
Inks: Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities Markers, Colour Lifter marker 
Stamps: Hello Love ( Hostess)
Accessories: Big Shot, Square Framelits,Word Bubble Framelits, Coastal Cabana Twine, Basic Rhinestones

Thank you so much for stopping by today -  and I do hope you have time to check out all the cards by the Team at The Paper Craft Crew this week and maybe you too may be inspired to enter the Challenge :-)

And for those wondering how Sally is recovering…she is much more like herself since the Fentanyl patch was removed. That said…she doesn't like to go outside unless she has to….so that meant a whole 16 hours! And of course she was whimpering near the end though still refusing to get up until she was ready…..(patience is the most helpful tool in her recovery!) and afterwards, the relief! Here she is fast asleep afterwards ….sshh! Don't wake her :-)

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Lovely, cheerful and happy card Jan!! Love it!!! The photo of Sally looks lovely & content as well!! A little sleep will definitely help the recovery!!! -Katerina

    1. Thanks so much Katerina! This "little birdie told me" was a favourite saying in our household growing up so I knew I'd have to get this set :-)
