Good night everyone, I hope you had a great Saturday wherever you live. 
Just a short post tonight as I spent all day at a card class and I'm ready for bed now.
This little card is made from white hammer card,a punched lace trim,
 some paper from my stash matted and layered onto contrasting card stock
 and a lovely little bird topper (It's a wren) from Kanban..
I'm not sure if  you can still get them as Kanban has ceased trading.
Of course you can always use a topper of choice and match the colours.
I hope you like it. I do:-)

Well, Happy days,I'm away to bed.

A simple card.

Hi everyone,
I have just made a card for the challenge over at Addicted to CAS. You can find the challenge  HERE
It's quite a challenge for me as I mostly embellish quite a bit. However I really liked just keeping it simple and enjoyed the process.
I used a white hammer card and a dark royal blue to matt and layer. I used silver linen card under the topper as it framed it nicely against the white card.
The flowers are hand drawn on vellum, embossed and cut out. I finished it with a white gel pen and a greeting. Part of me wants to add gems but I resisted :-)

I'll have to try some more similar cards. Wouldn't they make lovely notelets. You can use any flower, butterfly or any stamp for the center.

Have a lovely day,

Decisions, Decisions.

A very good Monday morning to you all.
I need some guidance today. I have made a card from bits and pieces, a doily folded to make an oval and handmade parchment flowers and leaves. I embellished it with a corner die from Joy Crafts.  What I want to know is.....should I add the corners onto the sides as shown in the second photo? They both work but I cannot decide what to do.

Time is flying.

Hi everybody, Where is the time going? I logged on and found it is 3 weeks since I've blogged. Have been busy of course with card making, sewing, taxi service for my daughter, baking, family communion and Confirmations.
I made these cards recently for a friend. I'm really pleased with the way they came together.
Two cards for 70th birthdays, confirmation and communion card and a card for a friend who sews.

Hunkydory card and elements and Kanban butterfly.
