daring seethrough cards

Daring cardmakers challenge - using something remotely see through. Since there are a couple of family birthdays coming up this month I got to make use of some of the gorgeous Junkitz transparent ribbon - cupcakes, celebration words & some flowers.

I'm not sure what happened to the full pic of the '5' card - lost between picasa & blogger :-( but you get the picture right?

I just HAD to use the new embossing folders for my cuttlebug (thanks Andrea). both the '5' & the word 'seven' were cut with the cricut but the '5' was cut & then went through the cuttlebug - love how these two tools can work together :-)

I've been playing with both the May SBO kit & with some of the Queens Birthday Weekend Challenges over the last couple of days. Will share soon :-). Can't wait to play with the June kit as it is freezing here at the moment & just seeing all those colours warms me a little.

I've also been mulling over make & takes/classes for the Bannockburn July retreat. I think Tanya Leigh is going to do one of the make & takes using products from Meg - can't wait to see what she has up her sleeve for us! Shout out to Nik who's in the other island at the moment - miss you but hope all is going well - also want you back soon! Must say I wish I was free to go to the Scrap Camp with Lianne & Yolande - & many other scrappers I come across at the end of this month though!

Finally getting some of my unmounted stamps sorted properly with some help from a folder & storage cards from Debbie. also needed some butterfly stamps she had there....

OK, need to leave here as it's too cold & my hands are feeling very chilli!
