Hello everyone,

Lovely morning while I'm writing this post, but last night it poured down and the wind blew and I thought of all my hard work yesterday, but it turned out okay, no damage and my pots are all watered for me..

What do you think of green and yellow cards? I seem to go in that direction at odd times, then find it hard to leave..but I made these slimlines a few weeks ago and quite like them..

I bought this water colour pad from a shop here called The Brand Outlet, just found it, can only buy online, but they have such neat stuff, and this water paper pad is sensational,well, for me it is..

So I sprayed the background with my Dina Wakley Gloss sprays..
more turquoise than green really..but they're pretty..

Added a beautiful Paper Rose die cut called Magnolia Bloom 18165

I added the number because I went to get the matching stamp and bought the wrong one as I didn't read the number, so went back and got the right one, then realized that this one didn't have a matching stamp,so had to go back and buy the  die that went with the stamp, that I bought by mistake..confused? too....moving on.

I added a bucket load of gems...

And stamped my envelopes with a stamp similar..
and it looks like it matches but ii doesn' me.

And there we have two slimlines all ready to go..

Thank you so much for stopping by, this post is scheduled as I'm my way out to my daughters for crackers and is cute..crackers and usually have half a loaf of bread filled with yummies..but crackers and cheese will make a lovely change and I will go home and have a Lactose intolerant attack..

Looks like a fab colour combo to me!! That is a poor excuse for having to buy more stash...on the other hand, might be worth a try!! Lovely tall skinny cards. Hope the cheese and crackers were good xx
