In fcat, we did a couple of different techniques to this card – Dazzling Diamonds, Aqua Painting, Sponging & for the inside – Pop-Up, but check them out for yourselves….

Scrappy Sarurday…

G’Day Stampers,
Seeing as though it is May 1 & the beginning of Scrapbooking Month, what better way to start off than with 2 pages for you.
Very basic simple pages, but I wanted them to be that way.  I didn’t want the stamps, etc to take away from the photos.

Cards & Things – # 27…

I’ve been trying to clean up & come across some small scraps of cardstock.  Circle Circus just happen to be in my hand at the same time, so I quickly whipped up a couple of Thank You Cards which I used this morning……

While I had all the mess going, I decided to have a go at the Challenge over at and used the same stamp set and sort of the same idea.

I actually found my SU Brads & have taken the pokie bit off the brad & am left with just the Rhinestone.  I added the Kiwi Kiss to bring a 3rd colour into the scheme of things.
