Thankyou & Something a little different

Hi there!

Thanks to all who stopped by my blog & left comments during the Blog Hop.  Each and every comment is very much appreciated. Thankyou!

I myself am planning to Hop around it again - there was so much inspiration; and now my daughter's back at school I might even be able to schedule in a little more time to get my stamps inked up.  The Blog Hop Candy Winners have been announced and will be receiving their candy in the mail over the coming week/s.

These days I generally I play mainly with SU only products.  This is because the color co-ordination makes it soooo easy and I love the quality.  Occasionally though I'll be asked to create a few samples for my Local Stamp Shop, and I take these opportunities to use my pre-SU stash.  Here's what I came up with this time. . .

First a cute shopping Anya

then a pretty vintage card for this anya carrying flowers

I had made a larger handmade flower then decided a smaller one would look better on the card so of course I then I had to make a matching gift box to put the big flower on.

I really enjoyed making those in the vintage style & plan to break out a few SU sets over the coming days to create more.  Friends 24-7 & the Friends wheel are just screaming at me, and after seeing some creations using the SAB Birdcage stamp (yes the same one I used in the Blog Hop) this is gonna be working hard too.

My daughter encouraged me to get these stamps - she convinced me we needed both Anya (Bella) and Ian (Edward), butI think she had her own interests at heart LOL.  As soon as we got home we got to work creating these pencil cases.  We're a bit late jumping onto the Twilight bandwagon, but she's certainly making up for it!

OK now off to do some more stamping & hopefully have more to show soon.
