Hi all,

Hope you're all recovered from the bank holiday weekend and the horrendous thunderstorms.  We were busy building a conservatory to deal with the ever expanding amount of toys my girls seem to have!

In just 2 days time the brand new 2018-2019 annual catalogue is launched and I have been busy playing with the new in-colours which are a stunning set of brights this year and I just can't get enough of them!

Today I have used Blueberry Bushell which is a deep blue, darker than Pacific Point but not as dark as Night of Navy.  I was a big Dapper Denim fan so I think this is a great replacement and I'm sure you will see it lots over the next 2 years while we have it.

On this card, I have used the lovely Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits and the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set which have been around for some time now and will feature in the new catalogue (hooray!). 

To create the background circle, I have punched out a 2, 1/2" circle from a scrap piece of paper, laid it over the top of my card base, and using a Sponge Dauber and a Soft Sky Stampin' Pad, lightly added some ink to the apperture.  Before lifting the scrap paper off, I have stamped the dots stamp in Blueberry Bushell ink.  This is a great technique for adding a focal point to any project, and I always think it looks quite clever!  I have also stamped the same dots across the bottom of the cardbase. 

I have cut the dragonfly out from Blueberry Bushell Cardstock, and another in Vellum, which has been stuck underneath. 

Happy Birthday comes from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set (also carrying over in the new catalogue).  This has been stamped onto a piece of Whisper White carstock in Blueberry Bushell ink, cut into a banner and stuck onto the card. 

Thanks for reading.  If you haven't got a copy of the new annual catalogue and you would like one sent to you, please send me your address and I will pop one in the post to you.

Have a great day!
