My apologies folks, I know its been a while since I've been here in blog land and up-dated you all on my wonderful creations so here goes...

I made this card for the Just Add Ink - Just Add Bows - challenge


to make the card I used some of the goodies out of the Seasonal Catalogue (I won't say "new" as it has been out already for a month!) The luscious grosgrain ribbon and diagonal "Stripes" embossing folder are both from the Seasonal Catalogue. You can click on the picture to the right of your screen (as I have FINALLY added it to my sidebar) to be redirected to view the awesome products.

 You may notice that the stamped image I have used is NOT in the current OR Seasonal Catalogues.
 "Where can I buy that gorgeous stamp, Marlene?" I hear you ask.
Well my lovelies - fear not! This stamp and SEVEN OTHERS that are equally as awesome, are available SINGULARLY!!
Yes! until January 31st 2014, you can purchase one or all of these 
Limited Edition, Limited Time, Single Stamps!

My Mother-in-law celebrated her birthday this week so this is the card I made for her. I think "chevrons" are starting to grow on me...

I have also been busy creating a new "Watermark" with PicMonkey do you like it? I think the butterflies are cute. It really is easy!


  1. What a glorious Christmas card, Marlene! BEAUTIFUL bow, and I love the touches of foliage. The Stylish Stripes embossing folder is just perfect for Christmas, isn't it? Love this. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!

  2. I am LOVING the single stamps range from Stampin Up! And yes, they are all equally as awesome! LOL
    Your card is FABULOUS Marls! I especially love the green leaves and the stripes embossing folder sets it off beautifully. Btw - perfect bow!
