Fresh Vintage

Yaay! I came Top 3 at CAS Colours and Sketches, so thanks to all their DT.

I've been crafting this afternoon, and made a card!! I will be entering these challenges with it :

Retro Sketches with this sketch

CAS Colours and Sketches with these colours

CAS-ual Fridays with colour blocking

Stampin' Royalty       and       Addicted to Stamps      want to see something  

                                               CLEAN and SIMPLE !

Here is my card

First, I put the three strips of card through the Big Shot in different EFs. Then I coloured the stamp with Write Markers and stamped it onto White card and Maroon card that I'd cut with a Nestabilitie, and layered  them over the strips. I added the sentiment as a finishing touch. 

Supplies :
Card = Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Maroon and White card FMS
Stamps = Fresh Vintage and Verve
Inks = Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, and Certainly Celery
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Fancy Fan EF, Dots EF, Budding Vine EF, and Stamp-a-ma-jig

Tomorrow is Mothers Day, and here is the card that I helped Nathan make for his mum

He chose all the colours and the lay-out himself, and is quickly becoming a little designer !

Guess what he wants to do over the Easter break? Yes, more crafting!!.

Thanks for dropping by, and Happy Mothers Day to all you lucky Mum's out there in Blogland !

I'll be out with my Mum tomorrow, so I'll be back next week.
