Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
Today is another chance for us to give thanks and remember those that gave their lives so that we could live freely. We will always Remember them.
Your Old/New Challenge Cards
Card 1: Here’s the finished onePositive and negative I used green mirri card and a Sizzix die. Inspired by Clean and Simple cards on FB.
Card 2: I made this yesterday for my great niece Apart from the card blank everything I used has either never been used or not used in a very long time.
Love both of your cards Karen, your Christmas card is stunning, I adore the Clean & Simple look ❤️ Your card for your Great Niece is lovely, I really like the mix of Modern (the sentiment) with the 'traditional ' (balloons & cake). It really works, it's so hard to make cards for relatives that we don't see regularly, I have no idea what my niece is into, she was super crafty but has moved on from that! Your card is perfect for that scenario.
Thank you so much Karen for two incredibly inspirational cards XXX
My two cards for this week's Challenge are made using
Stamps from a set that PHIL MARTIN launched some time ago.
They were at the bottom of my box where I store my stamps.
To complete both cards I used background papers and embellishments from my stash.
I have to admit that I was so thankful I have a 'Stamping Platform' or I wouldn't have been able to consider using these stamps as they are on the large side.
Oh Janet, two lovely cards, that first card would make a perfect journal cover, I love, love, love that background paper!!
Both sentiments are lovely too, I like the style of them too. I like you would not consider stamping these without a platform, I have some of Phil's stamps they are long rectangular stamps in different themes, to this day I haven't got a decent stamped image.
Thank you so much for taking part my lovely XXX
I just put together a pair of x-mas cards out of things in my
bit box and papers I have had forever but never been used.
Two lovely Christmas cards Maria, that background paper on your first card is stunning, I think it would look amazing with a big die cut sentiment too. Your pretty, traditional Christmas toppers work too, love the little bells too 🥰
Your second card is so lovely, a perfect traditional Christmas card, perfect for posting too. XXX
Hi here is my card for this weeks challenge,
I used a piece of paper from a Stamperia pad, called forest, I had forgotten all about it, it’s mostly wild life, but I thought this background suited the the tree stamps from stamping up. A few gold stars and some stickles.
Have the family coming soon so I’d better get on.
Hope you have a good weekend.
Oh Lilian 😍 the scene you have created is A-MAZ-ING !! Did the background have that crackle texture on or have you added that? This could be either a Christmas/ New Year Card or a Winter birthday for those Men in our lives. Thank you so much for taking part, I hope you have a lovely weekend with your family XXX
I’ve used a couple of Sue Wilson’s festive dies, which haven’t had much use! I used Kraft card, distressed the edges and inked with a white ink pad. I also inked with white over the Poinsettia and the ‘merry’ die (which I think is from a Reverse Confetti set)
Oh Sonia what an amazing Vintage style Christmas card, you must be so pleased with how it turned out! You have given a totally different look to those Sue Wilson poinsettia dies.
Thank you so much for taking part during such a busy week at work, I hope you aren't too exhausted XXX
Once again Ladies I send you my heartfelt thanks for supporting the Blog and Challenges, I had one of those 'low' weeks mentally, where you think 'what's the point', am I just burdening you all with these challenges each week, hence my overthinking Friday's Challenge. But I've brushed those dark thoughts aside and painted on a smile! I really do want you to know how much I love and appreciate you all X❤X
I hope that you all have lovely Sunday,
Love and hugs to all of you,
