Good Morning Ladies,
Here we are on your favourite day of the week! I just love sharing your cards, nothing gives me greater pleasure.
I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend so far, boy did we get a soaking yesterday!! I felt a bit better yesterday so we decided to drive over and drop Pat's cucumber plant off so that can get it planted, to make the most of the journey we popped to Morrisons to get our weekly shopping, they didn't have half the things we needed so we crossed the road and went to Aldi, got the shopping we needed, as we were leaving the store to say the heavens opened would be an understatement, we got soaked, soaked through our clothes, my hair was dripping! As soon as we got home I had a hot shower and snuggled under the duvet for an hour. On the upside the garden looked much better for it, thank fully we didn't have the huge Hailstone storm that Karen had.
It was so lovely to see Pat, who like me has long hair, it's funny how different it makes us look, I really can't wait until we can all get together and craft again, I really miss seeing both Sue and Pat each week and we would also be organising a Watford meet up too, hopefully we can organise one for the Autumn.
Let's look at your amazing cards....
Brenda has made a beautiful Birthday card for this weeks challenge, using a Crafters Companion Die to cut the cream card which Brenda layered over Cinnamon card, it's a beautiful card, the little pink and white flowers really lift the card. Such a beautiful, delicate creation.
Thank you so much for taking part Brenda XXX
Another stunning card from our Sonia, for this weeks Things with Wings' Challenge, I love the combination of colours that you have used and the beautiful papers.
'' One of our residents at work is 90 next week, so I thought I’d make a Birthday card for her, to tie in with the challenge. I’ve used papers from Anna Marie Designs and Studio Light. The butterfly sits on the Spellbinders Brillante Rondelle centre die, the border die is also from Spellbinders."
Such a gorgeous card, so kind of you to make such a special card for your client, she will absolutely love it Sonia, thank you so much for taking part XXX
Janet has made a lovely Dragon card, how magnificent is he! What a great card, I guess you could use if for any childs or anyone from Wales, the sky that you have created looks amazing too Janet.
Janet's second and third photos are pages that Janet has stamped and embellished for her Journal, both pages are amazing Janet, I think that because you are doing it as a gradual, ongoing project you will see a real variation in the pages as they are created as you use both new techniques and old, it's such a great idea.
Thanks so much for taking part in the challenge again this week my lovely XXX
Michele has shared 4 cards for our challenge this week, featuring both Christmas and Birthday cards.
Michele's 1st card was made using a Free die, I love that die cut and the paper you have used.
2nd Card was made using a Magazine Topper (free gift), I love the matching background paper.
3rd Card was made using an Ella's Design CDRom, super cute as always.
The 4th and final card was made with a topper printed from a CD Rom.
Thank you so much Michele for 4 fantastic cards XXX
Pat has shared two gorgeous cards for this weeks 'Things with wings' Challenge.
How magnificent is that Swan card?! I love it Pat, is it a Groovi image that you have built up?
I love how 3D it is, the background you have created for it is fantastic too.
Pat's second card is a beautiful Groovi card that features lots of cut work as well as lovely colouring, a gorgeous design Pat.
Thank you so much for taking part in this weeks challenge Pat XXX
Lilian has used het Embroidery Machine to create this stunning Butterfly topper, such beautiful embroidery too, giving the butterfly so much detail and texture. What a genius idea, the background for this card was made using 'Washi Tape' although it looks painted me, Washi tape has clearly improved in quality since I last bought some.
Such an amazing 'Mixed Media' card Lilian, what a brilliant and very inspirational idea, thank you so much for taking part XXX
Sue has made a pretty Birthday card for this weeks 'Things with Wings' Challenge.
Sue used the Butterfly die to create an aperture, replacing the die cut butterfly into the aperture which gives both depth and great detail to the card front, Sue also used a decorative border die to create that pretty detail on the bottom of card front. A pretty ribbon bow and the stamped sentiment finish Sue's card perfectly.
Thank you so much Sue for taking part in this weeks Challenge XXX
Maria has used a gorgeous and very intricate die cut to create this card, everything about it is so delicate and pretty including that butterfly.
Thank you so much for such a beautiful card Maria XXX
