For this card I used the Joanna sheen flowers cd rom.. Absolutely love this cd.. ❤️

I made my own card blank for this one by scoring the a4 sheet of card then using my MS punch to make the decorative border.

That's all from me this evening. Off to bed now can hardly keep my eyes open :-/

A little sunshine

Evening bloggers, hope you are all well..

I've just seen that I've been chosen as one of the top 3 over at deep ocean :-)
So pleased...

Well it's Getting a bit chilly here now, think we have seen the last of summer here now :-(

Anyway Here is a quick card I put together the other day for a bit of brightness

I used an old Boofle decoupage/topper kit...
I embossed the white background and layered onto orange and yellow cardstock..
The sun and Boofle character was in a set together.
I added a little strip of yellow ribbon  to the bottom too.


Thanks for stopping by today and for any comments you leave, I do enjoy redwing them

Red, ribbon and roses...

Good morning bloggers, hope everyone in the UK is looking forward to a nice long weekend.
We are continuing Harley's birthday celebrations tomorrow with a day out at Drayton Manor. Then it's a calm chill out one I think with plenty of crafty time ;-)

Today's card share is a card I made a while ago that's not been blogged yet (I have quite a few lol)

I was asked to create a card in these colours with a sentiment in another language (I think it's Czech

I used the flower cd again from Joanna Sheen for the focal sentiment panel and the backing papers..
I cut out the corner flower and decoupaged up to give some extra dimension
Used ribbon, buttons, metal charm, flowers (roses) and leaves all from my stash.


Right I'm off to vacuum now before doing grandads shopping 
Have a Good Friday everyone..
I will be back later with another card share 

Hugs Kelly
