Trees & Wreaths were the theme for this weeks Challenge cards, you really have embraced this challenge, I have seen some gorgeous cards. So without further delay here they are.....................
I love the third card too with Sue's Word Tree with the Music sheet background, it really works Janet, I love the gorgeous bow you have finished the tree with too.
The last card is just a stunning wreath, that foliage looks amazing, I never found the 'Joy' die an easy one to work with but you have given me a great idea Janet, which is exactly what this challenge is all about, thank you so much for four fantastic cards Janet, you are back with a bang! xxxx
Karen's card is an amazing Wreath card, it is a Kraft Card base, the foliage was made using Sue Wilson Maiden Hair Fern die to cut different shades of green card, Sue Wilson Poinsettia die and Tattered Lace Pearl Flourish. Tonic Nuvo drops in White and Gold add the finishing touches to Karens Wonderful Wreath, thank you so much Karen for taking part xxxx
Lilian, two fabulous cards from you this week, oh I love that Wreath Lilian, so delicate, perfectly framed by the Creative Expressions Poinsettia Frame Embossing Folder. The delicate finish of the little red gemstones is just perfect. Thank you so much xxxx
The second card Lynda used a Willow Tress mask and put some Dark Green paste through, she then did the Tumble dryer sheet technique, which adds softness and sparkle to the card, some pretty silver twine and two poinsettias finish the card perfectly. Thank you so much for taking part, I know your mind must be in other places right now xxxx
Margaret, two terrific tree cards from you this week, the first card has three fab trees, that have such a lot of texture embossed into them, with a touch of added sparkle, I love the 'Season's Greetings' sentiment you have used too.
The second card has such a pretty Christmas tree stamp, the tree has been beautifully decorated with red gem stones and topped with a super star, thank you so much Margaret for taking part this week, I know you have been feeling poorly, I really do appreciate you taking part xxxx
Michele, A Trio of Trees from you this week, all fabulous and all very different, The first quartet of cards are fab, with silver star embossed card in the backround, blue pearl card toppers with silver trees, great for Christmas cards or Christmat thank you cards,
The second card has a pretty lilac pearl card Grand Spellbinders Circle topped with Sue Wilson's first Tree die cut, decorated with tiny pearls, such a fantastic card.
The third card Michele has made using the 'Lacé', a combination of cutting and folding the card to form a pattern, it is a very effective technique as you can see by Michele's fantastic Tree. Thank you so much for taking part Michele xxxx
Sonia, Omg, I love this tree stamp, and that sweet, sweet sentiment, the Tree has been beautitfully framed by a matt of red card and Sue Wilson's "Delicate Frame'' from the Italian Collection, more matching matt and layering and the addition of that beautiful sentiment finish Sonia's card. Stunning Sonia, could you please let me know what the stamp is you used? Thank you so much for taking part I know you have been super busy in your new job, I am so happy you are enjoying it xxxx
Val, Such a peaceful scene that you have created on this card, the snowy mountains with the trees in the foreground, the birds soaring over head and the proud stag stood taking everything in. A very thought provoking card, peaceful, great for 'thinking of you' or 'man' cards. Thank you so much for taking part Val xxxx
Wow ladies, what an amazing range of cards, my poor fingers are aching, but it is well worth a little stiffness in the fingers to see such an incredible display of cards.
It's you amazing ladies that make every second I put into this blog worth while, I wake each morning wanting to check in to see who's been in and how they are doing. I have done the same thing each morning since starting my daily blog, which thankfully changed my life, so thank you all once again, it really does mean the world xxxx
Have a lovely Sunday,
Love and Hugs to all of you,
