Sending Best Wishes

Once again I am playing with paper over at
Always Playing with Paper -  this time for their current 
Colour Challenge.
Here is what I came up with
with these gorgeous colours below.
A favourite stamp set of mine
for the flower is from
SU - Lotus Blossom because it is a
3 step stamps and can use so many different colours.
This time I just used the 2 -
Memento Love Letter & Versa Color Old Rose.
I used basic coloured card stock in pink grey
& white with water colour paper.
 The background speckles are Tim Holtz
in Memento London fog. The stem is also this colour.
The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping
Corner rounded and popped my image
and finished with some rhinestones.
Hope you like my cas card. Love to read your comments.
Till next time Cherrio from

V is for 'Vegemite'

Over at Just Add Ink the current challenge is to
create a project with the letter V
Details are Here
Now you may ask where my V is?
When I read the post the first thing that stood out was
VEGEMITE! What's this you say?
It is a yeast extract that us Aussie's love to put on toast.
My favourite is to add avocado with it - yum!
Now I know a lot of people can't stand the strong taste
but I spread it lightly not like my hubby who
smothers his toast with it.

The next thing that came to mind was the word
VACATION so I got out one of my favourite
SU sets called Feeling Sentimental and the
phone booth reminds me of the red British ones
so what better stamp to use when you are
over the other side of the world
on VACATION without your VEGEMITE?
The colours I used are part of the theme -
you see Vegemite comes in a jar or tube is
brown in colour and yellow is on the jar so I used
SU Yo Yo Yellow & Close to Cocoa.
Other products used are -
Background are stencils from
Tim Holtz - Speckles
Clear Scraps - Chevrons
Sentiment - Gina K Designs Country Roads
I picked this to go with the strip behind the
yellow cotton - I need my VEGEMITE
typed up on my laptop.
Did some distressing to match the stamped image
and finished with a tiny button tied with some
more yellow cotton.
Sorry this is a long posting but needed to
explain a little about our Vegemite.
My card certainly isn't what most people would be thinking
with the chosen letter - but I sure had fun with it.
Thanks for dropping in.
