(I used Time Zone Converter to get the above)

My chosen stamp set is Fifth Avenue Floral

The above card is a favourite design I have seen all over the net
and I have been fortunate enough to get one as a swap at
our convention last week .
You will find the original card I cased here
I got the idea of the imitaion ribbon
things from Sandi MacIver, she used the
small and large oval to do that

My next card is a design and colour outside of my comfort zone.
I challenged myself to create inside and outside my comfort zone
and I'm pretty pleased with this one.

The inspiration for these cards came from Sandi MacIver
run on over to her blog she has some awesome ideas
that never fails to amaze me. Sandi is also a good friend.
That I had the privilege to meet in person for the first

Also inspiring me with this technique is Patty Bennett
she has some amazing designs too and a tutorial she made.

Crystal French from Denver is the originator of this technique,
I wish I had her blog or email to link to this.

Come back on Monday and I will add full details of the techniques,
recipes and links to the tutorials for the above cards,
right now I want you to enjoy the tour and bookmark
your favourites before the links disappear.


 Big Suitcase

I hope you enjoyed the Blog Tour of May 15 & 16th
