Shining Moments


Hello - its Friday again.. this week the lovely Jacque has her very first sketch up over on the Friday Sketcher blog and boy she did start out with a fabulous sketch to work with. Can you believe that she is stamping only since November last year? If you have a extra minute hop over to her personal blog and drop her a line and also check out her personal blog candy that she is offering.

Okay :-) my card was made with CS pieces i had left over from my Easter DT kit that Magnolia Sweden had kindly provided for me to make cards with. I felt those green papers look quite elegant and work for the Edwin stamp from the new Graduation line very nicely.
Papers/CS: unknown and Stampin up for layering
Embellishments: ribbons and brads from stash
Coloring: all Cool Greys and W0, W2, G20, R30, E00, E000, E11, E50, Y21
Punch: Ek success "Fleur de lis" (found at Michaels)
This cute award was given to me by the wonderful Sam :-) check out her blog she has so cute cards up on her blog!
Check it out.. :-) Tab from 7kids broke down and ordered those cute Gratuation line stamps for her store :-)

Stunning card Claudia, wonderful colours, image and embellishments, I have to tell you that after having 4 sons and 6 Grandsons my first little Grand-daughter is due at the end of July, I am so looking forward to pretty things and pink rather than worms, spiders, dirt and grubbyness :D, but truthfully I adore all my boys and am a bit worried about how I will cope with a Girl he!he!. Have a great weekend
Hugs Jacqui x
