More Delightful Djion!

Evening all,  I did warn you that I am loving the new In Colours especially the Delightful Djion!
I did use the Watermelon  Wonder, Top Tip Taupe & Delightful Djion inks on the backgrounds too to create this card.

Delightful Djion

Morning all, hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather over this Bank Holiday weekend.

When I first took delivery of the new In-Colours, I certainly didn't think "oh these are gorgeous".  However, I do now!!!!
I also remember saying to a friend of mine that I really wasn't sure about the new "yellow"  Delightful Djion.  You've guessed it, it is now my favourite colour to work with, especially on velum.
Here is my first card using this scrummy colour!

Isn't that colour just ...............................

Spring tag

Good morning
Today's tag does remind me of spring.  I used the lovely Pool Party cardstock to make the flowers, the candy dots, the ribbon and the ink!  Believe it or not I also used Blushing Bride pink which came out looking rather orangy?
I loved doing this and think I may make some more!

Have a great day and I hope the sun is shining wherever you are.

Thank you for stopping by today
Take care

Homework!!


Good morning, I hope today is going to be lovely and sunny again.  Wasn't yesterday just gorgeous?
Today I wanted to show you my "homework" - the cards that go into my bag made on playday.
 
I made two of each design using just the  Pool party colour.  Love them!

Thank you for stopping by today

Open Sea

Good morning, today's card has been made using the "open sea" stamp set from Stampin'Up!  I cannot believe this is the first time that I have used this set. 
I love the sea, as a child I used to go on camping holidays with my 3 brothers and my sister to Dorset, Devon & Cornwall.  We always spent hours upon hours on the beach just playing in and out of the sea.  I now live by the sea and I love to watch the waves bashing against the rocks on really windy days.  I must take after my dad as he always loved the sea (lived by it & was a sailor!).
I digress!
Just realised the sentiment looks gold and it is actually silver.  Must have been the reflection of my top!! Sorry, no time to change now.

Have a great day

Playday M&T

Good morning, today I am sharing with you the swap that I made for my playmates, I normally like to make a 3d swap to gift but time ran away from me, as it does. So a quick 4 x 4 card it was.  Hope they weren't too disappointed with it!

 Hope you have a great day

Playday M&T/Swap from Lesley

Good morning, had a nice time at our playday this past weekend.
Today's post is showcasing the bag that Lesley had us making.  We all had a bit of trouble deciding how we were going to do the rings that the handles would go through! Our thinking caps were definitely on!

I chose to cut out a scalloped oval, fold it in half and then use the small ticket punch for the hole.  I think it worked quite well, don't you?

Thank you for stopping by today.
Have a great day

Playday M&T from me

Good morning
Today I am sharing the 4" x 4" M&T that I designed for my playmates on Sunday last.
It was so quick to make as I had already stamped out the flowers for everyone - maybe shouldn't have!!
Love to use the Blackberry Bliss on velum, makes it look so rich and vibrant.   I also managed to sneak in some glitter.  You will also notice that this is yet another card made with a tiled background which seems to be my favourite thing to do at the moment.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day
Take care
