Icecream and cupcakes …

Do you ever have a favourite stamp set that you absolutely fall in love with, use it lots and lots, but then put it to one side and neglect it for ages?  I came across a couple of sets that I’d not inked up for a while – they are ones that I just love too –  so when I needed a card for my sister-in-law’s birthday, I got out my stamps, and their matching punches, and made this card for her …

I love this colour combination –

pink pirouette, sahara sand, very vanilla and the new in-colour – strawberry slush …

While I had out my crafting goodies, I made a matching gift tag for her present too…

 And talking of presents, I just love the card and tag kits in the new autumn and winter catalogue from Stampin’ Up!, and I knew my sister-in-law would love them too!

All the kits are gorgeous of course – I was spoiled for choice!

The gift tags set has everything you need to create your very own festive tags, all presented in a beautiful little box, making an ideal gift …

she was one very happy lady!
