Special Reason

The holiday we've just returned from was for a special reason - my Mum's birthday (a special one). 

So it made total sense to use the new set called "Special Reason" to make her card.  Besides the fact its her favourite bundle in the new Occasions Catalogue.  There are two fabulous ways to use the Framelits dies in that set and I like them both. 

I liked the card on page 42 of the catalogue but I didn't have the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper which they used for the base. 

So, the stamps were perfect for stamping a background on the base of the card instead.  The cut-out die means you can still see it showing through behind. Add a sentiment and some linen thread and it really makes the card.

Cardstock: Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White
Stamps: Special Reason
Ink: Calypso Coral, Soft Suede
Dies: Stylish Stems Framelits
Other: Linen Thread

A New Year, A New Look

Happy New Year.  I'm back from a lovely holiday and I thought I'd start the New Year with a new look.  I've updated the look of my website/blog and I've done the same to my Facebook page.
