Brenda (Lello)'s Card Anniversary Card for her Husband
Margaret's Budgie Birthday Card
Patricia's Cog Card
Good Monday Morning Ladies,
I hope you are all well and have had a good weekend, the weather wasn't so bad after all, you have all been really busy doing many different things from Hen Nights to Church Fete's and Scarecrow hunting to Sheep Racing, you can't say we are a boring crowd can you?
Its so lovely to be able to share all of these lovely events with all of our friends here in the café!
I also see that Spellbinders have copied our Virtual Café idea, I am shocked, maybe we should flattered, theirs will no where near as friendly as ours, I bet they won't have such a broad spectrum of topics covered in their posts!
Right onto todays fabulous selection of cards, first up we have an amazing card by Brenda (lello)
Its made using the Creative Expressions (CE) Noble Die 'Ornate Pierced Squares' designed by Sue Wilson, for the frame, the centre part of the card has been made using (CE) Weaving Dies both Classic and Striped, Brenda has layered the two colours and weaved them together perfectly,
the sentiment has been die cut with (CE) Pierced Flag dies , Brenda has finished the card with
some seam binding ribbon and some wooden hearts.
Brenda this is an amazing card, made to your usual very high standard, every element of the card is crafted perfectly, thank you for sharing your Anniversary card with us xxxx
The second card in the line up today is Margaret's Card with the Hilarious image of Budgies at the Beach, I think we should have a mini competition today for the funniest phrase to accompany this image!!!!
Margaret has framed this image with (CE) Noble Die, Ornate Pierced Rectangles, the background has been embossed with the (CE) Beaded Fanfare A4 Embossing Folder, I believe the 'Happy Birthday' Sentiment is a Spellbinders Die, Margaret has used the gorgeous Blue foiled card to cut this sentiment and as a matt to tie the colour in.
Margaret I love this card it really did bring a smile to my face, I am sure it did Alan's too, thank you
very much for sharing your card with us xxxx
The Final card today has been created by Patricia, it is a fantastic Cog themed card with a double ended flag for the sentiment, I am not to sure if the cogs have been created with the Spellbinders Cog dies or another brand, I know that Patricia has used the amazing Score-Pal, Score Buddy to add the pierced effect to the edges of the card. I can totally recommend this fabulous little tool, it only costs about £3 -£4 and is so easy to use, I just place the edge of the card over my Hougie Board and make sure there is a score line where you want the line to be and then run the little Score Buddy down the card, you kind of have to have the crossover at the corners though as it is a bit difficult to stop in an exact spot, but it gives you a perfect spot for a pearl or brad.
Thank you so much Patricia for sharing your fabulous card our blog xxxxx
I hope that you have a great Monday,
I will call in later to catch up with all of you,
Love and Hugs
