Hi everyone, 
it's mid month inspiration over at the Just for Fun challenge and I had great fun making my card for it. You will find the challenge HERE.
 I seen this shape on Create and Craft and it caught my eye so I went and tried to make it myself. Anyone who knows me know that I love a challenge and I love playing when maths comes into the equation. 

So I took a piece of A4 card and folded it in half, then measured 3.8cm /1.5" in from each corner and took the corner off at the diagonal. It's a very pleasing shape
 Then I matted and layered the gold mirri card and patterned paper. The paper was only 6" sq so I inserted a contrasting piece to make it wider. The topper is from Hunkydory and I cut and assembled the flowers by hand with a tiny bought flower for the center. I cut the leaf shapes from patterned paper.

I love how it turned out and encourage you to try making some flowers yourself and also try the card shape. Try it on some copy paper to start with.

Have fun and I love to read your comments.

Christmas Fun Challenge March

Hi Everyone,
It's March already, time is flying by. My daughter told me how many weeks of school is left until the Easter hols and then how many until the Summer hols and reduced to weeks its frightening how short it seems.
But to make it better I am well ahead with my Christmas cards. What? Do I hear you groan when I mention Christmas,,,,,,don't worry its still a way to go until December but it's fun to make Christmas cards at this time of the year.

These cards were made for the Christmas Fun Challenge which can be found   ~ HERE ~

                                                     Christmas Fun Challenge Blog               

The first one is following the original theme of Bauble and Bows and we are also introducing Anything goes so you can make either.

This one below is for Anything Goes but I just realised it also has some baubles.....designed that way of course :-)
It is a center stepper card and I will do a tutorial later on in the month of how I make them and on changing their size. There are plenty of tutorials around the web if you want to look it up now.
