Cute Card Thursday "New Beginnings"

Good afternoon everyone.

Thank you so much to everyone who commented on my last post. I really appreciate all your helpful advice.

I have made a card which I am entering in this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge where the theme is "New Beginnings". I've used a stamp from the SU "Fine Print" set again. You will probably see a few more as I am making up some card gift packs using all the stamps from the set.

I will be making this card in pink too.

I am so pleased it is Friday and a bank holiday weekend. As much as I love my darling son I find it quite difficult spending so much time on my own with him and love it when my partner is home too.

Have a great weekend.

Clare xx

Hi Clare

What an unusual image sentiment, but what a fax card, really stamds out from the crowd.

Have a good weekend, wonder if the sun will shine ?

Hi Clare

Lovely card, very effective. Thank you for the thumbs up on my tractor card. I was so relieved when I'd finished it.

Hi Clare. It's great to be back among all you lovely blog friends. I've just been having a catch up at what you've been up to while I've been away.
Sounds like you've been having a busy time. Congrats at all the fantastic candy.
For what it's worth re the die cutting machines. I love my Cuttlebug, it's the best crafting thing I've got and cuts my Nesties beautifully and will emboss them too with the wizard mat. It'll cut Sissix dies and also embosses perfectly. I wouldn't be without it. Put one on your Christmas list!!!!
Have a great bank holiday weekend whatever the weather.

This is lovely Clare. Very effective and simple. Sometimes less is more. I need to do some simple cards for a fundraiser and I've got one or two ideas for my Cuttlebug.

Another delightful creation from you (it would be gorgeous in pink too!)

I'm so with you hun - I really look forward to when Dean's around! I don't know about you but I find motherhood quite lonely (think that's why crafting is a godsend for me!)

Big hugs
Love Steph xxx
