Hi everybody on this overcast and cold Sunday afternoon. It has been a great stampin' and movie day today, hope you are having a good one. It was a nice relaxing afternoon yesterday making some nice cards so waving at ya girls!!! A few regulars away so we will catch up at the next one, male cards next time girls.
I decided to make white and vanilla cards the theme of the day for something different. I think alot of us tend to gravitate straight to a colour for the card, I know I do. A big thanks also to Ann De Losh for a CASE on Card 2 and to Nic & Shell for a loan of a punch and stamp set. I was happy with the results I hope you like them too!!!

Hi Girls, wow 2 posts in one day!!! It's just that I am really inspired by our team day spent up at Madonna's yesterday(A big wave Mad's!). I'm sure there are lots of girls out there that feel the same after a day of stampin' and chat with a great bunch of girls. Anyhoo, back to the challenge. A huge thankyou to the girls at JAI for a fabbo challenge, I can see myself using this one again.
I had one of my card kits left over from the shoe box swap yesterday, so I decided to adapt it to this challenge. The colours are just amazing, I just love Tangerine Tango and I'm wrapped it's going around again next catalogue.
I am so happy with the way it turned out and I hope you like it too!!!

Well what a day we had at Mad's place on Saturday. The gorgeous Madonna organised a shoe box swap and general chit chat day at her new home, and I loved it!!! It is so great when someone has a card all designed for you to put together, and they were all amazing. Thankyou to all the girls for sharing their amazing talent and to the super Kirsty Brown sharing ideas with us as well. Below are the photos of the day, the 1st one is all the cards and the close up of the melon mambo flower was my swap. The flower I can't give direct credit to the inventor as it was some time ago I saw it done but I have a feeling it was one of the English Stampin' Up girls.

Photos are a bit all over the shop as they wouldn't be nice to me. Top photo is moi, Ann, Mad's, Kirsty and Annette in front. L to R is 1/ Mad's and I, 2/Mege's(super upline), Margie (super newbie demo) and I, 3/ Kirsty and Ann. I didn't manage to get all the girls as some had to leave early, but I hope they had a great time too. By the way Shell we reeeeeeeeeeeelly missed ya!!!
