WOW! Where has the week gone again.
Are you well and ready for another challenge

This week we've got a recipe for you
'Mostly Words'
so here's my ideas and you'll notice there's a 'purple' phase going on!

First up ... I really MUST get organised with some Christmas makes
so this challenge gave me the opportunity to try out some
brand new dies...

Uniko Studio: Snowflakes & Clearly Besotted Merry Word dies
The 'Christmas' sentiment is also from CBS
The 'Merry' is die-cut from shiny purple foil card and the snowflakes from
DCWV Glitter card. I've added a few gems and stars for some added interest too.

The panel is adhered flat to the card to keep down the postage cost as 
that's definitely something to bear in mind with card making especially
at Christmas

Next up I've gone for bold, bright and colourful using design paper 
from Doodlebug, Dies from My Favourite Things: Blueprints 13 and a
 WPlus9 basic birthday banner with sentiment from the matching stamp set.
The BIG sentiment is from Uniko Studio: Make a Wish and to finish 
some Doodlebug sequins to coordinate with the colours in the DP

Last but not least I couldn't resist this sentiment stamp from Hobbycraft;
not that I've got anyone in particular in mind for the card but it's fun.
The DP is Doodlebug because I just love their colours and I've used 
Dies from Mama Elephant: Landscape Trio
Sizzix Framelits: Circles
My Favourite Things: Die-Namics Sentiment Strips
To finish some gems and pearls from my stash for that 'bit o'bling'

Ok talented crafters ... I'm handing over to you and I'll
be popping around your blogs to check up on your creations 
throughout the week. 

Have fun and thanks for stopping by.



  1. You have made some beautiful cards Sarah

  2. Such a talented lady! Loving all three of your cards, but especially the first one. Great signature and watermark too - was it difficult to create?

    1. Jane thanks for the lovely comments. In answer to your question about my signature I am fortunate to have a teenage techi son at home who, if the mood takes him, will attend to my blog needs! This was done recently but he's fed up with me now as he thinks my ideas are too dated!!!! I'll ask him how he did it and try to email you in simple English! Xx

    2. Thanks, that would be great. Teenagers know it all!

  3. Oooh Sarah so many fab cards here again, all so gorgeous too, clever you ;) Viv xx

  4. Great cards Sarah, love them all. I love the silver, white and purple on the first card - stunning! I love the great design/layout you have used on the second and the bold colourful DB paper. And the third? well you know I love me some purple!! Hope you have a great weekend xx

  5. These are all terrific Sarah, really difficult to choose a fave and I really must admit to a little stash envy here too!

  12. Great cards, I particularly like the middle one. Great layout - I'm going to pin to pinterest for inspiration - thank you.

  13. Your cards are fab, again :). I like sentiment of the last one, I'm fighting against my body getting older than my mind feels :-).

  14. Sarah these are gorgeous, I love that wordy DP on the second one and the sentiment on number 3 is sadly all too apt :)
