Great Friend {four}

Last night I spent making cards, chatting and consuming copious amounts of M&M's with some gorgeous gals at my Great Friend Stamp-a-Stack.

As promised here is the fourth card we made:-

This was probably my least favourite of the lot, and almost didn't make it to the table for creation, it's saving grace was that I infact ran out of time to recreate something else, but as it happens the gals LOVED it.

I used Certainly Celery as the base and then used my piercing tool to create a border around the edge. The centre is a Scallop Oval (love my new punch) in Regal Rose with a couple of silver brads and the BEAUTIFUL butterfly stamped in Pink Pirouette. That's it!!!! A very CAS card.
I have to admit my biggest struggle when creating cards for my Stamp-a-Stacks is keeping them SIMPLE. Even these were turning towards the not so simple way.... lots of cutting out you see. I can't help myself. The girls obviously don't mind, the all seem to keep coming back... hahaha. THANKS GIRLS!!!!!! Mmmwah!!!!

So, what's your biggest struggle when it comes to creating cards?

Hope you like this one too, and hopefully I'll be back soon with some more to show you, I might even give you a break from the GORGEOUS Great Friend set, just a little one though!!! hahaha.

I've had some queries about my SAS classes. If you would like to participate but don't live in the area, send me an email. You can order the goodies and I'll pop the instructions in the mail for you. Perhaps you already have the Stamp set, well no probs, for the same fee that my Gorgeous Stamping Buddies pay, I'll send you all the cardstock pre-cut and all the extra goodies you'll need to make the cards together with the instructions. INTERESTED... then Email me for all the deets.

Thanks for stopping by.

I have the same problem with SAS cards. My last one the girls were here for 4 hours!!! But, as you say, they keep coming back, so it can't be all bad! Love the card BTW!

All four of the cards are fabulous. I love the scallop oval used as a background, the brads really make it. You make such beautiful cards. Wish my brain could work like yours!!!!
