Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
Whoa that was a warm night!! I hope that you all managed some sleep, today is set to be warmer than yesterday so relaxing is the only activity today, Lilian I think we should all come visit you so we can dip our toes in the sea!
Let's have a look at your amazing Challenge cards ..
Both cards are made using STAMPERIA 'ROMANTIC' papers. I think this set is one of their best yet. All the embellishments are from my stash boxes. The card with the flowers and threaded ribbon is the card I will be taking to K&N on Tuesday as it's my turn for the ladies to make. I hope everyone will like it.
Janet I really smiled when I saw your cards for this weeks challenge because I have just bought this collection by Stamperia, I love the books, the colour pallete is beautiful and the detail in the papers is stunning as always, I couldn't find any inspiration on line and I open up your email and see your cards, beautiful and so inspirational.
Thank you so much my lovely XXX
Maria has shared this stunning Crystal Art card with us for this weeks challenge, a pretty image of sunflowers in a vase, I bet they really catch the light and sparkle Maria. Such a lovely gift for someone particularly as it takes so long to create.
Thank you so much for taking part my lovely XXX

Here are my two cards for this weeks challenge..
The first one is a stamp from Honey Doo Crafts, using spun sugar and old paper oxide inks.
The second one is using stamping up Birthday Blooms, coloured with zig clean colour pens.
Looking forward to next weeks challenge. Lilian
Oh Lilian I have these stamps and you have really inspired me to get them out and use them. The HoneyDoo card looks striking, so dramatic, I love it!! Your second card is gorgeous, I love your colouring and that lovely background. Thank you so much for tearing yourself away from the Tennis long enough to make two challenge cards XXX
Hi my card for the challenge. I love House Mouse and poppies so I stamped and pencil coloured the stamp then cut two poppies out of some Hunkydory paper that my friend gifted to me.
Such a lovely card Gina, who doesn’t love House Mouse, so adorable, the image works so well with the poppy you have used.
Do any of you remember Joanna Sheen demonstrating House Mouse products on C&C, her designs were incredible.
Thank you so much for taking part in this weeks challenge XXX
For the first one I used Chloe’s snowflake circle die and Christmas roses. The sentiment is from the reindeer set, and the backing paper is from a Trim Craft pad.
The second card I made is for our weekend receptionist at work who’s leaving tomorrow. I used a LOTV image. The sentiment stamps are from SugarPea designs. The border is Tim Holtz, and the tiny flowers from a punch.
Oh Sonia, that snowflake circle is stunning, those Christmas roses work so well with it, what a gorgeous Christmas card!!
Super cute LOTV image, you have created the perfect card for showing the image off, I love that sentiment too.
Thank you so much for two incredible challenge cards my lovely XXX
Hi my lovely.
I made some Distress Oxide backgrounds and the purple ones turned bright pink on the photos for some reason!
The colours used are:
Wild Violet, Seedless Preserves and Victorian Velvet, Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Scattered Straw.
The dies are freebies from Die Cutting this month and the sentiments are freebies from this months Simply Cards and Papercraft.
Wow Sue these are amazing they could make great cards or perfect Journal pages. I haven’t got atound to using those freebie dies yet but you have certainly inspired me to get them out and maybe use them for this weeks Mixed Media challenge.
Thank you so much for taking part my lovely XXX
