It's oh so quiet....

Dex has gone to nursery for another short settling in session so I'm grabbing the chance to blog in peace!  Tomorrow he's going for 4hrs, eek!

I made some simple little cards yesterday, but didn't get round to taking pics.  They're basically the same but in different colours.  A purple one....


and a yellow & green one (not sure about this one!)


Both made using my new Pink Gem stamps, which sadly have to go back because the lovely dotty flower stamp is faulty.  Janet was super speedy getting back to me though and she's sending me a replacement so no problem there.  I'll miss them while they're gone though... sob... sob!

I've stamped using Memento inks - I recently treated myself to lots of yummy colours so expect to see all sorts of odd combinations appearing.  Obviously you get a much more 'perfect' image if you stamp on plain card but I quite like the effect of stamping on linen card at the moment.  The butterflies are from the same stamp set.  Circles cut with Go-Kreate dies, pearls from stash.  'Best wishes' sentiment is Penny Black, 'for you' is from a Country Companions set.

I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:
Right, I'm going to catch up on some commenting while I have a quiet house, I'm very behind with all your blogs!
