Fave Occasion at Creative Inspirations

Hello lovelies! How are you? I am well and happy and ready for a new day! Its the last Rainbows of the season tonight so that will be one less thing to worry about next week! Woohoo - more crafty time!!! Lol!!!

Today there is a new challenge at Creative Inspirations - the theme this week is to make a card for your fave occasion - mine is birthdays and I used the latest stamp from the Little Claire stamp Club to make a masculine birthday card:



I made the background using distress inks (ripe persimmon, dried marigold, mustard seed) then stamped in versafine on top. The stamps are wonderful this month and really right up my street - I'm hoping the ones I ordered from the new silhouettes come today!!!! Exciting!!! 



This week's prize is from MY MUMS CRAFT SHOP and is a £10 GIFT CERTIFICATE!


I hope you can link up and play along with our challenge this week!

Thanks for dropping by and for any comments you leave - they make my day!

  24. Love, love, love the colours! The stamps are fab too - I really love silhouette stamps as you can let yourself loose and use bright colours which are then muted by the silhouette! Karen xx
