My Challenge card
Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well, everything looked in order when we returned from Ally Pally yesterday, so you either didn't go too wild or you were meticulous with your cleaning afterwards! Lol
We had an amazing time at Ally Pally, seeing Sue (Wilson) was a pleasure as always, despite feeling under the weather bless her, you wouldn't have known it to look at her though and she crafted like a trooper throughout the day!
The highlight by far for me was meeting up with all of you lovely ladies, for me this has fast become the favourite part of the day, our lunches are becoming longer each time we meet, I know I have said it before but is like meeting up with life long friends.
Now onto your fantastic cards.........
Micheles's Challenge Card
Michele has once again worked her magic with the
Stampin' Up! 'Swirly Scribbles Thinlits'
Using them to create a perfect Easter Bunny, complete
With Chocolate eggs, these dies have really earned their place in your craft stash Michele, proving that no matter what the celebration you can turn to them!
Thank you so much for the inspiration
Margaret's Challenge Card
Margaret has gone for a totally different look for her
Challenge card this week, I'm not 100% sure
How Margaret has achieved this perfect spring
Image, so I am looking forward to when she arrives
Today to tell us all how she did it!
Thank you so much Margaret for a totally
Awesome Challenge Card
Karen's Challenge Card
Karen went for the new Pantone Spring colours and sort of followed the sketch - I'm not sure if I like this. Are butterflies Summer or Spring....? ....I'm not sure that butterflies are Spring.
Papers from a Serif digikit, dies are both Spellbinder Les Papillon and Chloe Butterfly Wreath and Sue W's Pierced flags.
Thank you so much Karen for a stunning Challenge card
Maria's Challenge Card
Maria has created a gorgeous card, with the cutest photo!
Maria used Spellbinders 'Vintage Lace Motifs' for the frame around photo,
These dies were designed by Sue Wilson for Spellbinders back in the days before She was designing her own range of dies.
Sue's 'Bed Of Roses' Embossing folder, for the background, Trailing Ivy , Delicate Daisies and Pierced Flag dies make up the card.
I love your design Maria, Thank you
Brenda's Challenge Card
Wow Brenda, a real Spring feel from your card this week,
Oh I do love those Daffodils, are they Brittania dies?
I'm sure I saw those lovely Pink Frog ladies making them.
The sun rays effect you have created works just perfectly with
Your card design, the yellow and green are the perfect spring
Combination too, is the flower pot a die or did you create it yourself?
Such a beautiful card, thank you so much
Janet's Challenge Card
Janet, what a pretty floral card from you this week, you too have
Captured the Spring feel perfectly.
The backing paper is just so pretty with the little birds sitting among
The flowers, your beautifully coloured topper creates the perfect
Focal point, that stamp is so pretty!
Those three flowers complete the card perfectly.
Thank you so much
Lilian's Challenge Card
Oh Lilian, such a pretty pink on these gorgeous papers, they look a bit like the
'Bronte' papers I got a while ago from the range, all beautiful floral designs.
That diamond patterned die you have used adds just the right amount of detail without taking away from the pattern of the papers, the colour card you have
placed behind the die cuts picks out the darker links in the card, it works perfectly,
As does the ribbon you have used, a stunning Spring card Lilian
Thank you so much
Lynda's Challenge Card
Wow Lynda, such a fantastic card, you have created so much depth and dimension,
Your backing paper is lovely and I love how you
Have used a mask to add detail to the frame layer of your card,
The flowers are so pretty, Sue's Blushing Rose die I believe,
It makes such a delicate flower.
A gorgeous card Lynda, thank you so much for taking part.
Ladies, I know I say it every week but you absolutely make every minute I put into this blog worthwhile, I am so grateful the that you all take time out of your busy lives to take part in the Challenge every week , thank you so very much.
