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.

  1. Hi Corinna, thank you so much for your little story about your very special cat Missy, it really warms my heart to hear of all the wonderful happy fur baby stories out there. I know we are probably considered mad for having such a bond with our pets, but the unconditional love returned from these amazing little creatures is so worth it. My family and I will cherish every moment with our Polly, just as you have with your Missy. We truly are blessed with their trust and love. Thank you again for visiting my blog and leaving your wonderful comments, lots of inky hugs from Charmaine ;-)

  2. Hi again Corrina, I'm so sorry I forgot to mention how wonderful your cards and the pencil cases were, my daughter would love those cases, she is Twilight mad, we went to see the midnight showing with my upline Keesh and another friend. Great colouring by the way, thank you for sharing your talent with us, once again inky hugs from Charmaine ;-)

  3. I love that flower, its so awesome. thanks for sharing!
