Blue Friday

 Guess who is completely hopeless at photographing very long cards.  Sorry.  I had SU Pacific Point out for The Paper Players challenge and thought it would work for this one.  Not my usual blue of choice but I think it works well with the butterflies.

What you need
Cardstock - SU white
DSP - SU Brights Collection
Stamps - The Craft's Meow Sewn Sentiments
Ink - Memento Bahama Blue
Die - Memory Box Kaleidoscope Butterfly
Gems - Kaisercraft

So, to the next challenge before I miss the deadline.  A tricky colour combination this one, so I have opted for the easy way out.  Predominantly grey with splashes of blue and yellow.  I have just realised that the sentiment is hard to see, but don't worry, it's the same as above.  Couldn't resist a bit of stitching either.

What you need
Cardstock - SU white, basic grey
DSP - Neutrals Collection
Stamps - SU Friends Never Fade;  The Craft's Meow Sewn Sentiments
Ink - SU Delightful Daffodil;  Memento Bahama Blur
Die - MFT Dizzy Doily
Ribbon - SU Satin Delightful Daffodil
Pearls - SU

Tomorrow, Saturday, is apparently meant to be a scorcher again, around the 37C mark.  Sounds like another great stamping day (or cleaning out cupboards).  Let's see what happens.
