And now for a little stamping! The beauty of a set like Stampin' Up's So Very Grateful is that it takes on a whole new look depending on the colours you use. It appeared on yesterday's card full of glowing sunshine colours but today it's showing a more delicate side! Come and see:

The flowers were stamped in Early Espresso ink and coloured with beautiful Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz markers. A Sahara Sand card base really brings out those soft colours.

This was a fun way to use the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set: I stamped the happy birthday sentiment in two different inks, cutting the middle of the Early Espresso one out and layering it over the Sahara Sand one. I'll definitely do this again.

Yesterday, while chatting to my daughter, I mentioned the old fashioned idea of waking people up with a cup of tea in the morning. She stared at me in disbelief. "No-one's got time for that!" she said. I agreed that a cup of coffee was pretty much the only incentive for me to make it downstairs in the morning but she brushed this irrelevance aside. "If people want to wear rubbish clothes all day, they can go ahead and have their cup of tea in bed!" she said.

See you tomorrow,


  1. Ooh, it's one of life's great treats to be given tea in bed - if only! Tea is always the first drink of the morning, coffee comes second, that's my rule!
    Gorgeous card, such a sweet floral print. xxx

  2. Another gorgeous card using this set - I agree tea first thing in the morning!

  3. That is a lovely card Vicky.

    Never mind - better luck with one of the other children - perhaps they'll be more willing to wake you with a coffee?


  4. Another beautiful card Vicky, with stunning pastel shades.

  5. This is such a pretty card Vicky! I wasn't a huge fan of this set if I'm honest, but you may just have swayed me! :)
