The challenge this week is Couples but it doesn't have to be romantic couples we're told, any pair of creatures are fine! Come and see what I made:
I've come up with a pair of sisters or friends doing what we do best - supporting one another. The ladies are from All In The Family, an amazing set which is on the Retiring Stamp List. It's basically a set of heads, legs, arms and clothes that you can put together in infinite ways to create different people - there's even a dog and a cat!
The sentiment is a lovely one from Petite Pairs, a set of sentiments in pairs which you can use inside and outside your cards. The other half of this one says 'no matter what'.
I've used the new in-colours for this card - they're available now, even though they don't appear in any of the current catalogues. I am in love with them! It's always so much fun to get new colours and experiment with how they look with other colours.
My favourite has to be the acidic yellow of Summer Starfruit and I particularly like the way it sings with the Midnight Muse. The ink pads have the new firm foam filling inside and I must say they really do give excellent coverage with just a tap of the stamp in the ink. The other new feature is that you can stick the name of the ink pad on the front of the pad with the sticker provided to make it easy to find the colour you want. I've always been a huge fan of the ink pads and now they are 10/10 in my opinion.

If you came here looking for the 'something furry' I promised you yesterday, I do apologise. I was making a card with Fox and Friends but gave up firstly, because it was all going horribly wrong and secondly, because it's now sold out so I felt that it would be teasing to show you things that are no longer available! Lets pretend that the ladies in today's card have forgotten to de-fuzz their legs - will that count as something furry?!
Three Minute Thursday is back here tomorrow so if you're looking for fast, this is the place to be! See you soon,
