An extra card to share this week.......
Anne's Granddaughter Abi's card for her Mum's birthday
Good Morning to My amazingly talented craft friends,
What can I say?....just look at how many absolutely amazing cards that you have all created this week, some of you making 2,3 and even 4 challenge cards!!!!!
It really brings a smile to my face and give me that warm, fuzzy feeling when I come up with a challenge that you all seem to love and you clearly loved this challenge, every email that I received containing an attatchment had me rushing to open it and everytime I was so blown away by what I saw!
The first card I recieved was from Anne, who had coincedently made her card before the Sketch was released on Monday, it was pure chance that it worked perfectly with the sketch!
Anne it is such a pretty card, so delicate and feminine, using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles as your card base and Floral Ovals for you beautiful focal point. I love the floral die you have used Anne.
Thank you so much for taking part xxx
Brenda, you made 2 cards this week, my favourite is the first card you have made using the Creative Expressions Madison Square die set, I believe that you have hand made your stunning roses that decorate your beautiful card. The second card I believe is made using a Tonic die, another amazing card Brenda, thank you so much for going to the trouble of making two cards xxx
Janet, 2 cards from you too! The first card is a pretty round card I love the papers you have used and how you have used pearl string to decorate the centre of your card, the second card you have made using Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles is amazing, so dimensional, I love the colour you have chosed to make this card with too, that pearl string with flowers that you have used gives extra dimension and interest to the card too! Thank you so much for taking part this week xxx
Karen, I love your 'retro' looking card, made using Tonic Circle dies and topsy turvy card. To make the white card blank you cut two of the largest circles and scored about 1 cm in from one edge. karen then glued the scored edge to the second circle to make my card blank. Karen was inspired by one of the carft magazines - Die-cutting essentials issue 9. Thank you so much for taking part Karen xxx
Lilian has made two absolutely stunning cards this week, the first using Creative Expressions Spanish 'Seville' die set as the card base and that touch of rainbow mirror card is genius, it lifts the card beautifully, your second card, (which was the 1st one you made) has been made using Spellbinders Grand Decorative Circles One as the base, the papers you have used are so pretty lilian, the pearl flowers you have used to embellish your card work so well, making the card look even more stunning and expensive! Thank you so much for making the time to make 2 cards this week.
Lynda, 3 cards from you this week, I am not sure of the die you have used in the 1st card but it is so pretty, the 2nd card has been made using the Creative Expressions Caribbean 'St Bart's' die, it is so pretty, that die makes a fantastic card base, the stamp you have used works so well too. The 3rd card using the CE Tessa die looks striking in black and white, the pearls are all the embellishment that is needed to finish that card perfectly, thank you so much for making 3 cards while you have been so poorly, I hope you are feeling better xxx
Margaret, two gorgeous Christmas cards from you this week, I think they have been made using your Apple Blossom dies (but I may be wrong)! I love that tree you have used to decorate the 1st card, is it a die cut you have decorated yourself ?, the blue snowflake paper you have used on the second card is really pretty, thank you so much for making two cards this week xxx
Maria.....4 Cards from you this week...OMG! where do I start, your first card has been made using CE Noble Square die and Dainty Rectangular Frame to highlight your sentiment, that paper you have used is really pretty too! You have used CE Heraldic Square,decorated with its matching stamp and CE Stockholm die in pretty purple and yellow for your 2nd and 3rd cards, I am however stumped by the die used in your 4th card, the pretty floral paper you have used is gorgeous though! Thank you so very much for making so many cards this week xxx
Michele, your card is beautiful, you have used Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles for your card base, it works really well, I love how you have used the whole die set, the butterflies are the perfect embellishment for your card. Thank you so much for taking part xxx
Sonia, you have used Creative Expressions Auckland Die set to create your card base and it works perfectly, simply using the lilac card behind the die highlights the incredible detail Sue Wilson puts into her dies, the Delicate Daises are all that is needed on this stunningly simple card, I love it Sonia, thank you so much for taking part xxx
Val, you have used Creative Expressions Spanish 'Seville' die set for your card base too, the red and white works so well, the Memory Box Poppy die looks amazing as the focal point on your card, the red gingham ribbon finishes the card perfectly, thank you so much for taking part this week xxx
Our little extra card this week has been made by Anne's Granddaughter Abi, Abi asked Anne if she could make a card for her Mummy's birthday, so Anne showed her into her Craft Room and left her to play, Abi has stamped and coloured that image perfectly, this looks a very hard stamp to colour too, what an amazing job Abi has done.
The other part of the card that has me totally amazed is the little Pearl drops, now I have tried so many times to make perfect Pearl drops with Cosmic Shimmer Pearl PVA, it is very tricky, Abi has not only made perfectly sized pearl drops but she has used it to write her sentiment!
Abi your card is absolutely beautiful, your Mum will absolutely love it, thank you so much for allowing your Grandma to share your card with us xxx
Wow ladies, my fingers are about to drop off! I am so grateful that you all put so much hard work into your cards again this week, I am going to have to work hard to come up with a sketch card to top this weeks!
Love and Hugs
