Seasonal Expressions 2

Afternoon ladies,

I have lagged in my posts. My life has been hectic, in a good and bad way. 

I went off to Paris for two weeks with my Mum. But prior to this I was diagnosed with early stages of breast cancer. Unrelated to my previous cancer. I will be having surgery on 22nd June with 6 weeks off work and 6 months for a full recovery. 

Plenty of time to scrap. So hold on tight ladies it may be a rocky ride. 

I have been playing and will have plenty of photos from Paris to scrap. 

A card I made for my great nephew's 10th birthday. 

-Used my ShinHan markers to colour in. 

-The background is a cut down Picture My Life card from Balloon Ride Z1948. 

- Kraft cardstock Z1325, 24 sheets $15

- Teal shimmer trim Z1918 $6.50

Stamp used:

B1481 $15

The Happy Birthday stamp is from D1653 $27:00, $3 from this goes to Operation Smile which supports children with cleft palettes. 

Made this for a girlfriend. She loves purple and flowers. 3 shades of purple were used here, Thistle, Gypsy and Smokey Plum. 

The above is me playing. I wanted to do a watercolour background. I then stamped over it with Smokey Plum S1645 Botanical Backgrounds $27:00. The second strip is stamped on to the card, embossed and then coloured with my markers, colours are on my play page. 

Happy Birthday B1419 was stamped on to DimensionalElements - Mixed Shapes $6:50 Z1683 - great if you don't have a cricut. They are white so you can add any colour you like. Purple shimmer trim Z1919 $6:50 was also added behind one strip. 
Fun new embellishments are in this Seasonal Expressions. The washi tape, Sequins and Enamel Shapes will only be available until the end of August 2015. 

Above is a Journaling Cards box Z1953 $8:00. Mine is shown with completed cards but it is also great storage for photos yet to be scrapped. 

I returned from my trip with a dead computer, lucky it's still under warranty.
