A Geometrical hello!

What a fantastic weekend of sunshine it's been! Doesn't it make the chores easier when your shoulders are down and you're not wearing as many clothes?! Crafting has had to take a back seat for me this weekend but I do have a card to show you that I made a while ago for my lovely Stampers 6 club ladies. Come and see:

I love all the different triangle patterns in Stampin' Up's Geometrical stamp set (and it also comes with other shapes as well as some on-trend arrows and some really great sentiments!) This border was a lot of fun to make using a fun colour palette and a stamp-a-majig but if you're looking for a quicker version, you could just use the Triangle punch that coordinates with the stamp set. You even get 15% off if you buy the stamp set and punch together!

The triangles and the colours were quite bold so I needed a sentiment that could hold its own. The 'hello' from Simply Celebrate was perfect for the job, especially teamed with one of the extra large rhinestones. I think there's a bit of an 80s vibe to this card!

Here are the cards, all ready to be packed carefully in my Stampers 6 club members' parcels along with a little handmade gift!

When I was pregnant with my daughter, I had a bit of a nesting moment and created a nursery in the tiny London flat we were living in at the time. I wasn't having any truck with pastel pinks or blues and decided on white with splashes of regal shades. On the skirting board I masked off triangles and painted a border (rather like today's card) in the equivalent of Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry and Garden Green. There were beautiful velvet cushions in the same shades on a nursing chair and I even made a little cot quilt in a beautiful fabric with coordinating colours. The funny thing is that when my daughter was born, she spent about an hour in the nursery and after that we just used the cot as a landing stage for clean laundry! She and I decided right from the start that we stood more of a chance if we stuck together at all times!

I've gone off to Mumland again haven't I? Well you see, that's because tomorrow is my youngest son's birthday and after that I will be the mother of three teens!
