Cardmaking session Saturday

Good afternoon, boy isn't it hot today, 26C and brilliant sunshine, a little too hot for me so I haven't been far.

I cannot tell you what I've been doing today as it's something I've made as a present for someone, I love how it's come out though, all I can say is it involves coasters and it's something I haven't made before.

I had a lovely cardmaking session yesterday, it was brilliant. I made 3 yellow cards for a competition on the cardmaking forum so they'll have to remain a secret for now. I also made some cards using Penny Black clear stickers. Haven't used these for a while but wanted to do something relatively easy and I love Penny Blacks whether they're stamped images or stickers.

LOL you'll see I sort of fell in love with pink and green! One thank you card and 4 thinking of you cards.
The pink and green patterned paper is by Making Memories and the other by K&Co. I'm not too sure who the kitty paper is from as they were scraps. All the sentiments are by Stampin Up apart from "Big Hugs" by Cuddly Buddly. Aren't they cute? You'd never tell they were clear stickers, even in real life.

Ummmm, I did a little stash spending online last night and David's got 4 parcels coming to his workplace this week LOL. I had put myself on a stash ban but some of it I considered essential like adhesive, well I can't craft without adhesive, and well other things just fell into my basket!

I'm sending all my friends some BIG HUGS, some are going through a tough time at the moment.

Right, I'm going to write these cards now and get them ready for posting.

Take care, keep cool and hope you're having a lovely weekend.
