Cheers to you...

.... and cheers to me, cos I am nearly on my way. Is been hard going this last couple of days as I managed to get myself a virus that affected all my joints so I did feel 98 for the last few days and I didn't like it one bit, so hopefully some sun will do me good. I have a manly card to share I admit I do not like making these half as much but check this out, not to bad even if I say so myself.

>

Fairly simple layout but the combo really stands out, that's why I love SU I can get hundred of colour combos from the 4 colour families, love our colour families to the point where I am obbssesed with them, I translate every colour I see into SU colour names.( I also know that you're probably doing the same thing LOL)
Cheers to you stamp set, Short order alpha, Sage Shadow, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip card stock, twill tape and some original hodge podge hardware that is retiring soon. I coloured the beer mugs with the markers.
Next another sneak peek from the new catalogue this time is the cute bird from the Good Friend set. Now I have to admit starting to work with this set and not loving it straight away, but three cards in and I was hooked. I now LOVE IT!!!

You know who it reminds me of, the birdie on the cornflakes box LOL. Have a look next time and let me know if you think they're related. Aww how tweet is this? Ruby Red, Tempting Turquoise and More Mustard card stock and inks. You get quite a few stamps in this set, varied ones as well like flower heads and stalks etc. Like I said I do love it now. However this was my second attempt, the first ever card I made with it was not as successful shall we say LOL. I will share it anyway for you to see next time. Thank you for stopping by see you again soon. Hugs Monica xx
