Lemon Tree Launch

It seems only fair to warn you that I am completely new to blogging.  I just wanted to get that out of the way just in case I make an absolute mess of everything.

I find card making a great hobby and love stamping.  I have gained such a lot from other very talented bloggers and I am learning all the time.  I think that  at last I have found a style that agrees with me and that is CAS.

At least it sounds as though I know what I am talking about! 
Anyway, that is enough about me. 

This is what I have come up with.....

A Happy Couple of Owls

Supplies:   Clearly Besotted Stamps 
Stamps - Leafy Accents, You're A Hoot, Framed Sentiments
Dies - You're A Hoot

This card was easy to make.  These owls make a lovely couple and 
there are so many sentiments to choose from the 'Framed Sentiments' set. 

Another Little Friend

Stamps - Leafy Accents, You're  A Hoot,  It's Your Birthday,  Blooming Marvellous
Dies - You're A Hoot

  The 'Leafy Accent' stamp set from Clearly Besotted is very versatile so I use it a lot.  My brain wave was to use the centre of the flower from 'Blooming Marvellous' as the moon as I do not have a circular stamp.  The sentiment and the hat is from 'It's your Birthday'.

Birthday Wishes

Supplies: Clearly Besotted Stamps 

Stamps - Butterfly Wishes Additions, Flower Arrangement, Framed Sentiments.
Die - Butterfly Wishes Die Selection.

 I might have to move away from this colour combination soon....... variation on a theme!

'Building Blocks' is another adaptable stamp set with six different designs  - the dots are one of my favourites.  Leafy accents again I'm afraid - but who cares when it does the trick!

Thank you for visiting.

  1. Margaret, it all looks wonderful! Thank you for displaying my badge, I'm so excited that I can now pin your cards and also provide a link when I share them on Facebook :) Whilst I'm delighted to see so much CBS goodness in your first post (thank you!), I can't wait to see what else you have in store for us! xoxo

    1. Thanks Stephanie. I would not have got this far without your encouragement. In fact I have surprised myself! At the moment posting is taking longer than making a card.
      It is a pleasure to use your stamps - keep up the good work! xx

  2. Welcome to blogland Margaret. Your cards look absolutely wonderful.
