On to other news now: In my blog post for the Sweet Shoppe this month, I also had a little giveaway - this time card templates for you to play with! They are definitely meant as starting point templates - aimed at those of you who insist that they can't make cards! Honestly - if you can make layouts, I promise you can make cards too! Have a look at my post here, grab the templates and see for yourself :) These are a couple of examples I made using the templates:
You can find full credits for both cards in my gallery at Sweet Shoppe Designs, and yes the cute owl is sat on a hand stitched 'branch' - I really must learn how to use my sewing machine! ...though I actually prefer the rough 'n ready look of handstitching here.
Now, take a look at this:
I'm rather hoping Heather makes a similar Christmas Tree template - but if she doesn't I may try to adapt this one :)
Finally - just look at my FABULOUS new signature!!! I am so in love with it, and just had to show it off here! I 'bought' my siggy candy (as its known) from Fizzy Pop Designs over at 9th & Bloom - I definitely recommend a peek!
...and actually, thanks to Lizzy of Fizzy Pop fame, I've started looking at this site for colour ideas recently. Its just a nice site to browse around for pattern & coordination ideas if you've 5 minutes and cup of coffee!
Wishing you sunshine and fewer September showers :)
