Thinking of you

Hello there,

 I have a long list of commissioned and family cards to make before the end of July that I really should be getting on with, but I decided to attempt the dreaded One Layer Challenge at Simply Less is More. instead. It's a long time since I made a one layer card so be gentle with me.

Simple sponging through a die cut template.
A stamped leaf in black over top and a short sentiment.

I used distress inks in Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Shabby Shutters.
Leaf stamp is Crafters Companion.
 Sentiment is by Flourishes.

Thank you for popping in x

1st wedding anniversary card


I have an anniversary card to share today.
This is for the brother and sister in law of a friend of mine. I made their wedding card last year so I've stuck with the same colours.

The base card is cream with burgundy inlay.

The scallop dies are from Spellbinders
The heart is by Sizzix
Leaves are from a die set from the Works
Flowers are from a local haberdashery.

Thanks for popping in x

Handmade background papers

Hello all

Because of my neglect of my poor little blog over the last few months I've also not joined in with any challenges either.  I noticed the latest challenge at Simply Less is More is a colour challenge and, because I spent Wednesday morning getting messy with inks and paints, I thought I'd join in.
 This time it's the colour of their banner, yellow, gray and blue.
I began my messiness with marbling using the shaving foam method. I love doing this and I'm always amazed at how easy it is to make such a pretty pattern.

So, a simple design with a circular window.
The butterfly is from memory box.

I've enjoyed getting back into the swing of things, thanks for popping in.
