I have had time today to catch up with downloading photos and update my blogs. I must try to keep up to date from now on.
I admired this card made by Monica Gale and just had to case it even though I don't have a need for it just now. Usually when I see cards on other blogs I never have all the ingredients for them and so by the time I am finished they look nothing like the original (probably just as well, I guess!), but on this occasion I had all but the sahara sand card and I couldn't wait to get that so used kraft/crumb cake. Not sure who will end up with this one, but my Daughter did ask if it was for a Christening.
I tried my hand at a twisted easel card for a special 60th Birthday. I started out with the lovely japanese paper for the concertina circle and this is what I ended up with - not quite how I envisaged it, and perhaps a bit too bright.
and opened up.
Some of the ladies whose blogs I follow ( Bronwyn and Jenny ) have been using the SU Beautiful Butterflies die and the scallop circle die to make some lovely creations, so when my order arrived I used both of these dies to produce a card for my wonderful Daughter - and yes, red is her favourite colour.
I had to get the circle scissor thingy (non SU) out to cut the plain circles - that's not something I enjoy using, so I am hoping SU put out a die to co-ordinate with the scallop die soon. Can you see that this had a very generous spraying of shimmer?
and the inside:
I was very happy with the way this one turned out and will certainly be making more in this style in the near future.
So now I am all up to date, thanks for popping in,
