I feel like Cinderella - I am always trying to get to bed before midnight. I just seem to get a run on and the clock beats me again.
However, I have just finished off a couple of cards and wanted to post them here before I forget and post them to the recipients. I had a quite a few cards to do and not a lot of time so I found inspiration in cards I had seen and liked on the web. The one original card I did make this weekend, I mailed without taking a photo!
Earlier this month I saw this lovely card on Sue's blog and just had to try it for myself. It was the first time I had used the little dragonfly from SU Organic Grace. Unfortunately I don't have any of those lovely hat pins, so this is how mine ended up. Kraft, Red Ridinghood Red and Choc Chip - just love those colours together.
This is a bit too pale I think, but it is for an elderly aunt so hope it will be ok.
I have had a set of bird stamps from Hero Arts for a year or so now and finally got to use some of them - I think they are really cute. I got the idea for this one from here just changed it around a little.
Loved the simplicity of this lovely card from Nancy Riley, but as usual I didn't have the ingredients so here's what I ended up with:
and this is what I've been working on tonight. Just loved this card by Silke Ledlow - you can see I'm right into the red and kraft at the moment. I have used (for the first time) a stamp from last year's Saleabration set - Polka Dot punches - for the large flowers and one from Razzle Dazzle for the smaller flowers. The little dragonfly from Organic Grace makes a comeback - I stamped him onto the card and then stamped again onto kraft card, cut them out and overlaid them. Drew the stems by hand and made the buttons from card. I would have preferred the ribbon a bit wider as they are large cards 120 x 180, but at least the colour was right.
I have forgotten to take a photo of the little Easter baskets I made for the Grandchildren, so will do that next time.
