Bye-bye Betsy...

Here's a card that I made a while back during my fixation with all things aperture - holes in card fronts.

I remember it well, as it was one of those times when I made the tactical error of "popping in" to my craft room on the way to bed one night, just to try something out and get it out of my brain.

You can probably guess the rest of the story - me, bleary-eyed in my craft room, playing until all hours, and even blearier the next day!

Loving the result though!

Sadly, Betsy will be leaving us, along with the current catalogue at the end of this month, so if you love her like I do, take the opportunity to own her while you can.  She is available in woodmount (at 25% off) and clearmount, and there is also a co-ordinating Stampin' Around wheel on sale.

Check out another sweet and bright Betsy card that I blogged a little while ago - something cheerful for what is a very winterish and overcast day here in Perth.

Almost halfway through Retiring List month! Make sure to grab your must haves while you can...

Wandering through some random photos files recently, I came across some cards that I'd completely forgotten that I had made and photographed and definitely hadn't shared, so I'm going to pop some up here for your perusing pleasure.

I can't even recall who I made them for, and will have to take an educated guess as to the colours that I used, but I must say, I was chuffed with the discovery of them!

If I could ask you to blinker your eyes to the occasional retired product (easily replaced by a newer version - think button and DSP), then we're all good!

I'm not sure how I ever overlooked this one lurking in my files, bright and cheerful as it is!  I'm thinking a recreation of this in the delicious current In-colors would go down a treat, don't you think...?
