Mostly Flowers. Mostly.

These are the photos of two of my cards that we will be making this month at my $2 cards/Retirement Party.  I have sorted out 45 sets - yes 45 - that are going to be retiring that need to GO.  My Stamp Club ladies will have the first option on them next week, then they'll be out for you to have a look at on the 17th March.  Come along and check out what you can pick up for a bargain!


Mostly Flowers is one of the retiring sets that I have borrowed from Helen at the moment, and am really wishing that I had bought it earlier now.  It's SO cool!  Have you ever seen Tea Bag Folding?  I kid you not - that's what it's called (who knows why), but it is just amazing, and I'm going to be showing how to do it at my WITT class on Tuesday, then at Inglewood High on Thursday, and maybe, (if Helen lets me keep her set for another week!) at $2 cards on the 17th March as well!  This card is one that Helen made and brought along to our beach retreat last weekend.  It's so easy to make, and I love the effect.   I'm going to have a little play and see what else I could do with this cute layout.


And this card, which was originally made by Leah Sinatra, is using our lovely Level 2 Hostess Set Spring Solitude bundle.  I used watercolour pencils to colour the flowers, then the 5 petal flower punch and Polka Dot Punches SAB set. 

Enjoy your wet Friday - looks like cricket might once again be cancelled tomorrow.  Shame.  NOT!

Great cards! I'm sitting on the 23rd floor at work in the city looking at the rain and pleased the kids decided against coming into watch the Black Caps! As for cricket tomorrow ... 3rd week running cancelled I'd say :( ... fingers crossed for Sunday, Cameron wants to get his 50 rep wickets before the end of the season! (actually it might be Taranaki they're playing - or Wanganui, I can't remember now).
