Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you all have a lovely day yesterday, it was another bright sunshine day!!!!
I was luckily!
Todays card is one of those cards that makes you smile when you open them.
I used a white piece of card and stamped the 'Have a Lovely Day' sentiment in the bottom right corner, I then added a piece of blacks satin ribbon to the top of the card and finished with a little red resin flower. I die cut a large pile of leaves and a load of die cut flowers, I then sat and arranged them down my card, popping a black pearl into the centres of each flower. I wanted to tie the black ribbon and black stamping into the card. I stacked the red flowers onto of one another and offset them to make the flowers fuller.
I quite like the boldness of the colours, the matting and layering really make the colours pop too.
I hope that you like my card,
I have a quiet day planed, what are you all up to? Whatever you are doing I hope that its ends up a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,

My first card I made using my latest purchase from STAMPERIA titled HORTENSIA.
My second card I made using an A4 stamp sheet I found while searching through a drawer. I cannot remember where I purchased it from or when but I haven't used any of the stamps on it until this week.
Thank you so much Janet for finding time to make Challenge cards despite having a very busy week.
I am so pleased that you have your Stairlift installed, it's a simple thing but can be so life changing. XXX
Hi, here is my card for this week
Made with new Stamperia papers, new rubber stamp from stamping up set delicate details, found I hadn’t used this one. My new tag punch.
Ink is wisteria wonder, which I haven’t used either.
Did me good to have a search through my “stuff”.
Thank you so much for taking part in this weeks challenge, your card is amazing XXX
For my first card I used my new products from Clearly Besotted. I used the triangle fade stencil as my background. I coloured the flowers from the ‘Thanks a Bouquet’ stamp set using Pro Markers and added the sentiment from the ‘Feeling Sentimental’ stamp set.
My second card is using stamps from Tracey Hey - Alpaca Pals. I’ve used Anna Marie Designs papers as the backing and I stamped the scalloped circle and the hearts from the ‘Doing Great’ set and coloured with Pro Markers. I stamped and cut the elephant from the ‘Mwah’ set, adding him to the centre. The sentiment is from a paper selection pack also by Tracey Hey. I’ve fallen in love with these stamps, so much so that I’ve already placed another order ☺️
Thank you so much Sonia for two totally amazing challenge cards, I love everything about them, if you ladies would like to see more of Sonia's incredible cards I will leave the link to her lovely Blog below......
