A Little Sneaky Peak!!!

WOW... Sunday already!!! Where did the weekend go. Oh I know... Swimming for Miss Ella and Miss Jorja, Voting ( a tad upset about the outcome :o( ), Netball (which I'm still trying to recover from!!!), A BEAUTIFUL dinner with gorgeous friends, a trip to the Zoo in the Beautiful Sunshine and sitting down finally to make a couple of cards!!!!!

I've got a room a group of LOVELY ladies coming to my place on Tuesday night for an 'Occasions' Themed Stamp-a-Stack!!!! What to make... that is the question I've been twiddling my thumbs over for a week now!!!!!
I wanted to make the cards nice and simple but versatile so that my lovely group of stampers can actually get home to bed at a respectable hour. FINALLY, I had a breakthrough and came up with a couple, so I'll share just a few with you now... I can't be giving away ALL the cards we'll be making...hahaha.

I've used the same Layout here to create two quite different cards, for two different occasions, a 'Congratulations' card and a card that I thought would be suitable for perhaps a 'House Warming'. I've left the sentiment on this one as 'For You' that way it can still be used if the event of a House Warming shouldn't come up. hahaha.

Both cards I've used Kraft as the Base of the Card with a layer of Chocolate Chip. The I've punched out a Scallop Square of Bashful Blue and a Square of Pumpkin Pie, oh and lets not forget the little extra strip of Kraft too.... Poor little strip nearly got forgotten about!!! haha.
For the Congrats card, I've just punched out a Star in Old Olive and then stamped the sentiment in Choc Chip onto some Very Vanilla Cardstock and attached it with a little silver brad. On the For You (House Warming) card, I've stamped a little tree in Old Olive and Choc Chip and the sentiment in Choc Chip onto Very Vanilla and attached them with some Dimensionals.

So there you have TWO cards, TWO different Occasions, but ONE layout.

HOpe you like it.
