Get Stamping - New Magazine

Hello Friends

I hope you are all having a great Easter weekend!  We at Chez Hettie both had a nice long lie in yesterday and a most gorgeous Italian Fish Stew later in the evening and after several long weeks I enjoyed a nice glass of Merlot too!  Well, what is two days after 41 days of abstination?

I thought I would share some cards with you that I made after wandering through a certain large stationary shop last week and spotting a new card magazine - Get Stamping.  It included a nice sheet of stamps and I just had to set to and play....

This Moustache card quickly got turned into a Thank You card for my neighbour after he kindly took me into work when my car battery was flat one morning. I had not made it with anyone in mind, but I just loved the stamps!

I made these for some up coming birthdays that are coming up, and just because I like them.  

Here are the three together with some Tulips that I had been bought recently.  Three CAS cards for my box.  As I used Snippets in these, I shall pop down to the Playground to show the others.   I am just going to slide under the gate before they are closed!!

As for the magazine, I thought it was a great magazine as all the projects were done in conjunction with the stamps that were with the magazine and were suitable for stampers, card makers, scrapbookers alike, with a mix for both male and female projects.  A little pricey but the magazine is bi-monthly so maybe I will stretch to buy the second one when it comes out.  

That's all for now Folks.  Thanks for popping by.

Hi Hettie, these are just fabulous cards. Beautiful floral ones and the moustaches are just brilliant for a male card. Sounds like a great magazine you found there!

I've seen this mag several times this weekend but thought it a bit pricey. Your makes are lovely though, especially the one with the moustache. Might have to have a closer look at it next time.
