Welcome back. 

 I decided to use some of the Simply Elegant Suite for this "Congratulations" Card.


I am using this card as an Engagement Card for one of the three engagements we have at the moment.

I wanted to keep the colours simple with this card and have gone for Basic Gray on the Basic White Cardstock, along with some splashes of Wink of Stellar (of course!).

I hope this card is liked by the newly engaged couple!

Crazy Challenge Monthly Insta-Hop?

Yep, sounds "crazy" doesn't it??  It probably needs some context...

Last year, my friend (and fellow demonstrator) was struggling for inspiration.  She asked for a challenge (in hindsight, she may have occasionally regretted such a request).  So, my sister and I kindly obliged - one of us chose a stamp set and the other chose a DSP... without telling each other what we chose! 😱  I know, right?

But who knew it would work so well - there was the crazy card that involved the Wild Cats Stamp Set and the Hydrangea Hill Acetate which turned out absolutely amazingly... (but just don't ask my friend about the tropical penguins....)

And so it became a semi-regular challenge.

Then we decided to stop keeping all the fun to ourselves and to invite other demonstrators to join in by way of an Insta-Hop.

So my friend used a random picker programme and for the month of January 2022 we had to make a card using the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and the In Good Taste DSP - a nice and easy launch combination.

This is the card I came up with
