Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
Well we weren't forecast it but we had another glorious day yesterday, beautiful sunshine from late morning onwards, there was a cooler breeze but it was gorgeous. After I finished my Tracy Evans workshop we had a walk around the village followed by lunch outside, I them sat and did todays blog post, followed by a few garden jobs, all in all a lovely Saturday.
I hope that yours was enjoyable too.
Now let's look at your stunning cards....
Lilian has designed a lovely seaside scene on her Challenge card, the attention to detail that Lilian always puts in to her colouring blows me away, look at the amazing shine on that lighthouse! what do you use to colour with Lilian?
"Hello Sandra, here is my card for this week, old stamps but appropriate for this time.Every body needs a light house."
I love your Thank You Challenge card Lilian, thank you so much for taking part XXX
Two stunning cards from Sonia for this week's 'Thank You' card Challenge. You use some incredible die combinations Sonia. Your cards are amazing.
"For my first challenge card I used the Gummiapan circles die and Crafters Companion Thanks die, both inked with a fuchsia stamp pad to match the AALL & Create stencil. I mounted it on black card and finished off with two small punched flowers.
For my second card I used the Amazing Paper Grace Brilliant Rondelle die set. The main sentiment is from LOTV, while the Thanks along the bottom is a stamp from my stash. Papers are Anna Marie Designs along with grey cardstock"
Thank you so much Sonia for taking part in this weeks challenge XXX
Three stunning cards from Janet this week, all three are so pretty, the poppies on your third card are so vibrant. I love your Air Dry Clay embellishment too x
"1. to make this card I used a piece of Phill Martin's Brush Strokes paper as the backing. The Poppy Die I have had for a number of years and I really cannot remember the name of the company. The sentiment is a Tonic die and one that I can always 'go to' when short of complete word die/stamp. The po ppy is cut from a spare piece of card in my stash.
2. My second card is made using a piece of card from Prima -called 'Midnight Garden'. This is the first time I have used this company products and the pad is just gorgeous.The card is excellent quality and a joy to use. The doilie is from my stash bought long long ago and the rose and leaf are made from air dried clay (my first attempt of using this medium and I have to say I'm a little bit taken up with it. The moulds are LaBlanche and coloured with Spectrum Sparkle pens. Again the snetiment is made using the same Tonic die as before.
3.My last card is made using the last of my paper napkins (given to me last year by one of my crafting friends at K&N; coloured again by the sparkle pens and again the sentiment is Tonic.
Thank you so much Janet for 3 amazing challenge cards XXX

The stamp is from a Crafti Potential set (do you remember ages ago Michele told us about a bargain offer from them they include dies and stamps and the rainbow is a freebie from magazine Papercraft Essentials This one is for the bin men who are a bunch of young lads I will write how much we appreciate them on the back"
