Swirls and flowers

I love this navy and white paper , I decided it was too pretty to cover up so my card is very simple . I may add a sentiment later or just leave it like this.

Another card for my charity box, the photo is a bit naff ,the colours are not shown very well and don't seem to match at all.
The little handbag is from K & Company ,I'm sure with a little effort I can make some myself. The background paper is from Dena Designs .

Christmas Greetings

Although I haven't put a sentiment on the front I think I will use this card for Christmas. The music stamp is from Uppity .

365 Cards - day 267 - They have a vintage theme this week and today's challenge must include a pin . I'm never sure what makes a card vintage so I hope this will be OK.

A bit of recycling

Over the past few months my card making has been a bit hit 'n' miss. I had intended to complete all the challenges at 365 cards and for a while I was OK. I'm not sure what happened but I am so far behind that it's just not possible to catch up.

365 Cards - day 266- Super Sketchy Sunday .I'm never quite sure how best to attach lace to my cards ,I find it easiest to stick a strip of card to the lace first and add some beads. A pair of earrings I no longer wear have gone into my stash and this is one of them .

I'm back

Well hello out there and a happy weekend to all. I've just got back from 2 weeks in New Zealand . Over the next couple of days I will try and pop by your blogs to see what you have made. I should have done some fact finding before I went away as I didn't find many craft shops on our travels. I did bring a few bits back,but not nearly as many as I was hoping for.

Enjoy the weekend

A simple greeting

This lovely festive paper from Kaiser craft does all the work on this card , it would be a shame to cover it up.
