Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
Welcome to our Sunday Gallery of Cards, the first one in December! Can any of you actually believe that we are in December, this year has absolutely flown by. To think that this time last year we were a week away from going to court to be evicted from our home, not quite a month after Paul completed 33 years Service, it stay makes him angry to this very day, he says that that last month took the shine off of his whole career. We have come out the other side ok though, we love our home right now too, which slightly takes the sting away.
Anyway enough doom and gloom lets get on with the show...…..
Cheryl made a super cute Christmas card, featuring 3 cute festive images, that background is so lovely Cheryl, I love the gold foiled foliage.
Thank you so much for taking part. xxx
Two fabulous festive cards from Janet this week, the first features 3 foiled buttons and flowers, the colours your card a lovely and fresh Janet, its so nice to see different colour schemes on Christmas cards,
Janet's second card features 3 adorable snowmen, how fabulous are there wiggly carrot noses! Janet said that the image was purchased from 'Crafts U Print' years ago, I remember them at craft shows but haven't seen them recently, I wonder if they are still going??.
Thank you Janet for two lovely cards xxx
Karen has had a very productive week in the craft room, four fabulous cards, three Christmas, 1 birthday. Now, Karen's first and fourth cards were both made by 'recycling' old Christmas cards, what an amazing idea, especially as you just have to pop them on an embossed background and add a sentiment, perfect for batch card making!
Karen's second card was made by die cutting those lovely butterflies our of Valspar Paint samples, the perfect way to get a spot on 'Ombre' effect. I love your crafty frugalness this week Karen, my experience of trying to 'collect' a few paint sample charts was a little frustrating as a keen salesman insisted on telling me the whole history of Valspar paint and the fact that it was used on bridges and buses!
Now on to Karen's 'quirkiest' Christmas card....it was a request from a lady whose relative lived in the United States and was a Marmite addict. To most of us this would have been a nightmare, but not our Karen, she designs an amazing 'Marmite Bauble' card, with an even greater Sentiment !!!
Karen you are a bloomin genius!!!
Thank you for your inspiration my lovely xxx
Lynda has also been busy, she shared a photo of her craft room with me and it looked like a tornado had just passed through, thats when you know you have had a great crafting session, let me tell you my craft room looks like that most days. I end up crafting on top of a little mountain of stamp cases and inks, maybe a trimmer and a stamp tool too!
Lynda's cards all feature her amazing backgrounds, the first card has been stamped using a retired stamp set called 'Evergreen', Lynda has used this to stamp a trio or trees and a sentiment of course.
The second card features one of last years Christmas stamps called 'Merry Patterns', I would like to see the person that puts Christmas sweaters on to stags! I do love this stamp set though.
Lynda's final card features the current 'Star of Light' stamp set, this set is one of my favourites because I love the 'Star of Wonder' Christmas carol.
Thank you so much for making 3 'Christmas cards featuring 3 of a kind Lynda! xxx
Margaret has made a lovely Christmas card featuring 3 Bells, that have been beautifully stamped and adorned with a lovely gold bow.
Thank you so much Margaret I know you have had a busy few days my lovely xxx
Michele's Festive 3 of a Kind Challenge card features 3 strips of patterned paper with little rows of 3 gems in each corner. I really like the font of your sentiment too Michele.
Thank you so much for taking part. I do hope Phil has had a lovely birthday weekend!! xxx
Val's 3 0f a Kind challenge card was made for a friend at Crib Club, it features 3 playing cards, what a fabulous idea, love that sentiment too! You and Karen are just amazing at coming up with fresh ideas.
Thank you so much for taking part Val. xxx
