Got The Blues.

Hi there folks - too hot to be outside again so I am in my craftroom crafting. Had my Thursday night club last night and we made Flip Albums. I will finish mine later and post it on my other blog in the next couple of days if you would like to see it.
Meanwhile I have made a card for the Daring Cardmakers challenge blog.

The theme is Silhouettes so what better stamp set to use than Stampin' Up's 'Pocket Silhouettes'. Also used S'U card stock and inks - Night of Navy, Brocade Blue and Bashful Blue. I used  paper punches for the butterflies and decorative borders.
But if that isn't blue enough for you - take a look at the card I made for my brother Peter - he's 40 today.

This card also uses my S'U stuff and one of my favourite techniques - brayering.
So there you have it - two blue cards, and if you do pop over to see the Flip Album when it's finished - that's blue too! I promise to use some brighter colours for my next card - really!!!
Bye for now - Jacqueline xx.
