Summer Blooms Sunday...

Hi Folks,

Im here with a quick CAS card I've made using the stunning papers and toppers from the Summer Blooms Collection from Creative Crafting World.
Believe it or not this card is made using the paper insert from the kit and not the backing papers that come too. The inserts are amazing as well as the papers you get too.

Lyndas Black Card...

Hi Folks,

Im back again with some cards I've made using the latest collection from the Paper Boutique Range from Creative Crafting World.   The Collection is called Summer Blooms and is all in shades of pinks. 

Now I have titled my post Lyndas Black Card as I have a wee addiction to this wonderful stuff.  In my opinion its the best black cardstock on the market!!! The black is a true black and the core is black too. It cuts and is fantastic thought a die cutter and I use it on loads of my makes these days!!! I have just used a little here as I dont think the collection is really one for a huge amount of black but it just finishes off this topper and adds an elegant touch to it.  You can buy the card here. You honestly won't be disappointed!!! 
(Ive not been paid to say this. Its my opinion)
