Well I am now back in NZ after a fantastic holiday in the US. Sorry for the lack of posts this week but I haven't been well. I went to work fine on Monday but by the end of the day had a sore throat and runny nose - the doctor thinks it's hay fever so I am now on two antibiotics and anti-histamine tablets for a month plus a nasal spray! Don't you just love Spring!!
Well this weekend I've finally been able to have a play with all my new products. When I got home there were a number of brown boxes waiting for me :)
After not crafting for six weeks I wasn't sure where to start so I checked out some of the challenge sites and found a great layout on Try Stampin on Tuesday - here's what I came up with. I was really pleased how quickly this card came together and I love the clean and simple look. It uses five new items - can you pick them?
I've fallen in love with the stamp set the sentiment is from and have used it on 12 of the 15 cards I made this weekend! I'll try and post the remaining cards over the coming week.
Stamp - Quint-Essential Flower, Made for You
Card Stock - Marina Mist, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green
Ink - Marina Mist, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green
Punches - 2 1/2", 1", 3/4", 1/2" Circle, 2 3/8", 1 3/4" Scallop Circle, Large Oval and Scallop Oval

I hope you have all had a great long weekend and managed to do some crafting.
Thanks for looking.
