Good Morning Ladies,
Here we are again on my favourite day of the week, seeing how you all interpreted the Sketch. We say it every week but it always amazes me how all of the cards are so different.
So here we go.......
Karen another fantastic card from you, I just love both the Deer and the forest background, it's nice to see such a fresh colour scheme for Christmas cards too!
Here is Karen's description:
My card is a Serif background - obviously! (I'm a bit gutted actually I found out yesterday that DaisyTrail - the company that sells digikits are to be no more after 31st July)Mixture of dies
Sue W triple Merry Christmas
SW ribbon strip
Spellbinder Lacy Accents border and snowflakes
Freebie "deer" die
Thank You Karen for taking part
Val has managed three cards this week, which is fantastic. She has started the huge task of making Christmas cards for the shop, most of us complain about making 50 cards, Val makes 100's !! Your three Challenge cards are amazing Val, all completely different too, the 1st has such a cute image upon a pretty embossed background, with that Curved border makes the card stand out even more.
The 2nd card has a gorgeous snowflake as it's focal point, the background paper is really pretty with snowflake detail, the snowflakes are finished with pretty pearls.
The 3rd card is my favourite I think, I love anything with pinecones and fir branches, have you stamped the background paper Val??, I absolutely love it !!
Thank you so much for taking part Val.
Maria, Oh I love your card this week, everything about it works beautifully, the embossed background is stunning, have you sanded it? It looks distressed to me, I love it! Topped with that incredible Gold die cut Doilly it just works so well, the tiny gold detail you have added to the corners and the pretty gold flower finish your card perfectly! Absolutely amazing Maria, thank you so much.
Janet another fantastic Challenge card from you, that Embossed background is amazing, Crafters Companion??? The pretty square die cut is the perfect base for your lovely case of flowers. A lovely Sue Wilson border finished with the butterfly printed ribbon bow is the perfect finishing touch, thank you so much .
Oh Margaret a stunning Stampin'Up card for the challenge this week, I am so grateful you managed to make one despite feeling poorly.
You have used all of your new SU goodies for your card, Fresh Florals DsP in Tranquil Tide, backed with the same colour card, Flower Shop stamp for you centre piece, which you have placed on the fantastic Label die cut, you have used 'Vertical Greetings' for your sentiments. Stunning card Margaret, thank you so much.
Michele made two Challenge cards this week, the first card Michele made using up bits of card, love the colours you have used, the topper is one you bought from China but you would never believe it was a cheap die, I also have to mention that amazing embossing folder, it looks like crumpled paper to me!
The second card, although you would never guess is also made from scraps of card, the topper is Warren Rabbit, on a lovely green background, the background paper is so pretty too, such an adorable Christmas card Michele, thank you so much!
Lynda has made two Challenge cards too, more surprising is that she HASN'T used the Northern Lights paper pad! Hahaha! The first card has been made using the new pad that Lynda bought from the Works last week, the lattice die cut is from a Tonic die, Lynda topped this with a Sue Wilson Poinsettia.
The second card Lynda made with Paper from her stash and a Spellbinder Christmas tree die. Two fantastic cards lynda, thank you so much for taking part!
See....? I told you, you are all amazing, so many fantastic cards again this week! Janet I have ordered some more boards to display all of these cards on, as I can see you just don't like taking the old ones down! 😉
Thank you all so much once again, today you will find me in my craft Room with my thinking cap upon my head, trying to choose tomorrow's challenge!
Enjoy whatever you are up to today my lovelies, I hope that those of you feeling under the weather are starting to feel stronger. Huge hugs on their way!
Love and hugs to all
