I made this at 5am this morning...couldn't sleep, so it was a toss up between ironing or making a card...!!The camera hasn't picked the colours out very well (still having problems with it, but hoping that Santa will be thinking about little old me on Christmas Day...hint hint!).I went for a completely different colour theme and way out of my comfort zone, but I was so pleased with the end result.
I used Passion Pink and Orchid Oppulance CS - stamped the 'branch' using Baroque Motifs. I then stamped the square snowflake from Perfect Presents in the same colours as above onto white card. I then sponged all over using these colours and punched 3 circles out using the new punch out this time (the larger circle 1 and 3/4") - sponged round the edges using the same colours. Arranged them on the card - used the silver cord from my stash and then accented the snowflakes with Dazzling Diamonds.

everything here is very quiet today.....both hubby and I have lost our voices, so instead of wasting energy squeaking at each other...we are either just ignoring or doing sign language!!! Poor Dave, since he retired from the Police last November he seems to be picking up viral infections, colds and flu etc...and then sharing them with me - and of course as I have no immune system, then I catch them all! So, off to my workroom for some r and r, and he is sat watching TV...unheard of for him as he is always doing something!
Anyway, enough about us... I made this card yesterday using another new SU stamp set, which is from the Hostess section and a level 2..

When I first saw this stamp set in the new catalogue...I wasn't all that keen, but when I saw the wonderful creations made on other SU blogs, I decided to buy it - so glad I did!! It is called Autumn Days and is £19.95 (really good price!)
I used the leaf stamp and stamped in various colours of autumn ..... Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, More Mustard, Close to Cocoa and Barely Banana. I used Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie CS, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie ribbon and the sentiment is from The Circle of Friendship stamp set.

I haven't felt like doing much in the way of card making, but last night I actually got myself together and made 3 cards!! The one below I have made before, but liked it so much did another one!!
