Hopeful Thoughts... I'm here for you.

Hello my lovely blog followers! How are you?
It's been so wet and windy here this week... not so much today, we have bright sunshine at the moment. And I have lost count of how many times I have chased my plastic greenhouse around my garden over the past few days/nights even after securing it down with bricks! I think it has a touch of Houdini in it!!
A few weeks or so ago, I shared with you this card... Click here to see it
I decided to make a brighter version of it, what do you think, which do you prefer? I'd love to know your comments...



I love the fact that I have been able to transform plain white ribbon into a matching accent, purely by using marker pens in the same colour as the card stock. Give it a try, it really isn't that difficult, and let me know how you get on.



Stampin' Up! Supplies used:
Stamp sets - Hopeful Thoughts, Occasional Quotes (Retiring level 3 - Hostess) and Just Believe stamp set.
Card Stock - Crumb Cake, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink - Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Whisper White Craft Ink
Ribbon - 5/8" Grosgrain, 5/8" Organza both in Whisper White
Punches - Scallop Circle punch, 1 1/4" Circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch
Marker pens - Tempting Turquoise, Soft Suede
Accessories - SNAIL adhesive, paper trimmer, Dimensionals, paper snips,

I still have some dates available for October, so if you'd like to be one of the first to host a workshop, you'll get to see AND order from the Brand new 2011-2012 UK Catalogue so I look forward to hearing from you!

  1. Lovely Lynne - both are fab. But I do love Rich Razzleberry, so that might be my favourite. I must try the technique with the ribbons & markers! Thanks for sharing! Nx
