A mixed bag tonight

Hello, and welcome.  I had fun completing these cards .
And I am happy the way they turned out so am sharing them tonight.

Having said that, I must admit to taking too long in their completion.
I don’t know how any one can actually complete any
 creations once they have discovered blog sites !
 One can spend hours browsing on craft blogs .
 Well , I can ...and do. But thankfully I have completed
 my three make and takes for next week. And here they are …

My first , “ friendship”  is from page 21 of the
 08/09 Idea book & catalogue.
I know this is a retired set and it was a level 2 Hostess gift
 but I love it and still use it .

Recipe; Card stock- Chocolate Chip ,                                                      
 Mello Moss, Baja Breeze, Apricot Appeal,
More mustard and Whisper White. All SU

Inks;- SU . Creamy Caramel, Garden Green.

Stamps;- SU. Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Wonderful Words and Infinite
Goodness. All retired .

The 2nd card is derived from a card I saw on
 by Aunt Boo.
I do love white cards with minimum
embellishments so here is my effort.
For the flowers I dragged each ink  colour
over whisper white cardstock
then punched out flowers.
Recipe;— Card stock;- Glossy White ,                                                    
               Whisper White. SU

Inks;- Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green,
         Summer Sun and Lavender Lace. SU

Stamps;- Hello Again and Priceless. SU

Accessories;- Punch , Spring Flower Bouquet.
                   Crystal Stickers
                      Stampin’ Dimensionals

My 3rd card was chosen because I wanted to
demonstrate  Rock & Roll  stamping technique.
And , thinking out side the square ,
 I used The scalloped edged rectangle as
the background for the parcels.  Firstly inking image with Baja Breeze, then rolled the edges onto Pacific Point ink pad.

Recipe ;-cardstock;-
             Whisper White                                              

Inks;- Baja Breeze and Pacific Point SU

Stamps;- Framed With Love and Happy Moments

Accessories;- Markers , Stampin’ Dimensionals SU

Hope that you like these quick cards tonight .
Now that's done I can go back to blog hopping .
Catch you again soon .

All three cards have great appeal, my favourite is the first.....I love the torn edge and the use of several plain sheets of card.

I do agree with you about the time spent on the's good to see what others are working on though!

Love the card on friendship. So smart and appealing.

I agree with you - it is difficult to complete any work when one is blog hopping. It is a lovely past time.
