 This stamp by Indigo Blu is based on one of my favourite themes Hearts naturally, and combining it with Spellbinders Heart Square dies and Decorative Inserts One, Papermania Capsule Collection papers and Memento Ink Angel Pink gives a pretty and delicate look to the card.
 In future blogs I will be using the same delicate theme to make a new baby card and perhaps a wedding day one as well.The image was embossed with pink powder and pink spotted ribbon finished it off.Thanks again for checking in and your comments are always welcome so take care.            LIZ

Today's card was inspired by the colours of the daffodils in my garden and the lovely sunshine we have been enjoying for the past few days.Although I did not originally set out to make a Easter card I think it could cover this holiday as well as other occasions.

Today I have purchased 4 sets of the new Spellbinders Edgeabilities 'Mix and Match Classic Inserts'.Could not wait to try them out and while trying different combinations came up with this design for my Friendship card.Combinding these dies with previous edgeability dies the variations will be endless and I will be bringing lots more designs together.
Tomorrow I will be sharing with you a card with a patriotic theme so till then enjoy the rest of your weekend
