Other - Aqua Mist button/Petite Oval Nestabilities/Copic Markers

And this for one of my mum's friends:

Have a great day everyone, I've got a really fun day today - driving up to Wales in the pouring rain to go and get a fast track passport... great!

I'll keep an eye out for you honey ;D whoo hoo from Wales.

If I ever win the lottery or convince Nichole Heady to open up a papertryink shop down the end of my street, this would be 2 of the sets I would camp out all night and get( and the button one , OMG I LOVE IT). The cards that you have made are truly beautiful and are so calling me, Emma, Emma (can you hear them).

Not always boring going to Wales I hope though and you do get to use your passport to go somewhere nice after I hope :D

Have a great weekend x

Love these cards, so fun and fresh :0) I agree with Emma, they NEED to get a shop over here, then they would be inundated!!

I love this set too! Great cards Kate. The birdhouses look great on Kraft don't they. You know you don't need a passport to come to beautiful Wales! - but yep, its raining here this morning.

Lovely cards. I really like the colors.
BTW, I found someone to share shipping costs with over here in The Netherlands. We will place an order after the summer vacation. And this is thanks to your blog. So THANK YOU very much.

These two cards are so cute although the first one looks fresh and funky and the second one is elegant. This Set is one, I don´t know, if it is a must have to me. But I really like your cards and the receivers are very lucky. :)
And for the weather: It rained here in the morning too and the sun dosn´t come out. But who cares? The weekend is here, that´s all that counts,right? :)

Hugs, Tina

Kate you already know that I love these cards and that stamp set!!
I love the two different looks you've achieved, one bold and bright and the other more muted and subtle. If I was a birdie I'd be torn over which one to make my nest in!! LOL!
