Swinging by to say hi!

I'm back again with another post today - my mojo must be steaming, lol!  I made this card using this week's Sweet Stop Sketch and one of the new releases from the Swings and Slides collection over at Pollycrafts.  What do you think...?



I love this little cutie!  She is called Swinging Friends and I used my Crate Paper Sweet Branch papers to match her.  I wasn't sure if that orange (my fave colour!) would go with the papers, but I think I got away with it!!  And don't you love that brown box pleat ribbon?!  I bought it from Ladybug Crafts Ink - Kerry has recently got in a whole gorgeous new selection here. I nearly bought the whole shop, but of course I've got enough to start my own shop already!


I am also entering her into Stampavie and Friends for "Spring" and also Make It Monday where you can just share your creativity!  It's a good way to show others what you're proud of and you may get selected for a spotlight on your creation!



Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Crate Paper Sweet Branch paper collection
Stamps: Pollycraft Swinging Friends, Kraftin Kimmie Beach sentiment (buy here from Quixotic Paperie)
Mediums: Copics
Accents: ribbon from Ladybug Crafts Ink here, pearls from stash
Tools: My favorite Things rolled flower die (from Dies to Die For here), Fiskars border punch, Nestabilities rectangle die inside card

Hi Mary J

Goodness me girl, is there no end to your creativity???

This card looks fantastic. I love how you have the image off set.

Thank you for linking up to Make It Monday this week and for the plug for the linky party too.

Mary, another beautiful card. I shouldn't be suprised really (and I'm not ;) ) - teehee

You are sweet to check up on me. Alas my 4 month headache still hasn't gone. My doctor decided to sign me off for two weeks as of yesterday. They've confirmed that its a stress tension headache so I just need to rest up and it should go away. (A bit of a relief as I was starting to worry it was a tumour or something) I've got some tablets so hopefully they'll start doing something soon.

It does mean I've got an excuse to make cards for the next two weeks - yay! perfect way to de-stress.

I've just become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, so perfect opportunity to get some samples made up, and you know if you need anything, I'm here for you - LOL!
