Another set of cards using Stampin' Up! Best Thoughts and the popular Hallett bag

OH how I love this wonderful stamp set from Stampin' Up! its a set that you can get if you spend £150.00 (it's a hostess set) and cost just 10 hostess pounds and is called "Best Thoughts"

The cards are coloured in using Stampin' Up's Stampin write markers and I love these colours.

If you don't have or cannot afford to buy the big box of Marvellous markers then you can pick up the colour from the ink pads using the blender pens.  You can clean them and use them with other colours, although I would defenatly keep one red one as the SU reds/pinks have very strong pigments.  Also you can use any scraps of paper
