International Art and Soul - Three of Something

 Time for another challenge at INTAAS and this time it is to use three of something. The theme was chosen by Jane this time.

My Card

I am still on a mission to use older dies and the two I have used on this card are from Memory Box and I diecut them in white glitter card. The paper is extremely old and I came across quite a few sheets of this pack which was an 8x8" pad which may have been Papermania but the front sheet is missing. The sweet image is from an LOTV Simply Print sheet.

Why not pop across to the blog and see what the rest of the team have come up with for this challenge?

Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

12 Months of Christmas LinkUp Winter Sports

 Good morning. This morning I am showing my DT card for The 12 Months of Christmas LinkUp challenge. As always the challenge is Anything Goes with the option of following the twist.  This month the twist is Winter Sports. The Sleigh Belles team show their cards at the beginning of the month and mid month there will be cards from the Merry MAidens.

My Card

I think the image might be from Ruth Morehead but I am really not certain because it has been in my digi image folder from long before I started blogging at time when I didn't make a note of this sort of thing.  (Another name that is hovering in my mind is Sylvia Zet.) If you know different please let me know. The background paper is one from DDDoodles. As the image is a png. I just superimposed it onto the backing paper and it looks very effective.  A little glitter to the fur and one very quick Christmas card.

Hope you are all well.

Take care.

"Birthday" at MAWTT

 Hi, I'm a bit late showing my DT card for Moving Along With The Times where the theme is Birthdays.

My Card


I have made a double column card from white card stock and the paper I used is from The Works pad "Flowers Blooming". The banner die is Joanna Sheen and the pretty birdcage is from Cottage Cutz. The stamped greeting is from Crafter's Companion.  This is a very effective card which folds flat for posting.

Why not pop over to the blog to see the cards from the rest of the DT.

 Take care.

Clean and Simple for Christmas Card Club

 God morning and it's time for another card for our little club and, as you see, the theme this time is Clean and Simple. I made two very CAS cards and am quite pleased with them

Card # 1

This is an A6 and was made with ivory linen cardstock.

Card # 2

This one is 6" square and made with plain white cardstock. I used my scoreboard to score the lines.
Take care and enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend.

Things With Wings at International Art and Soul

 Good morning and hope this finds you well. Our challenge at IAAS this time is "Things With Wings".  That gives a very wide spectrum - fairies, angels, birds, butterflies, bees etc etc etc. I chose the theme this time and for my card I used butterflies.

My Card

I was going through my stash and found quite a lot of Hunkydory which I have had for a long time. When I saw this, from the Flutterbye Collection, it was perfect.  The images were so lovely I didn't want to detract from them so I just added a couple of pearls to the front and a Sue Wilson sentiment to the inside.

My sister lives alone and throughout the last two years of lockdowns I sent her a card every week, with only one or two exceptions.She appreciated them so much so I still sent her a card every few weeks.  This is the one she received on Saturday.

Why not pop over to the blog and check out the cards from my team mates?

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Cats/Dogs for Christmas Card Club

Good morning and it's time once again for another card for our little club.  Sylvie chose the theme of cats/dogs this time. 

My Card


This is a 5" x 7" red base card matted with cardstock embossed with a Sue Wilson folder. The cute image of the kitten in the Christmas tree is from my Greeting Card Factory Deluxe and matted with a red oval. The sentiment die is also Sue Wilson. Hope you have been enjoying the lovely spring weather, although I understand it is not the same around the country unfortunately. Ah well, that's Britain for you!

Take care and enjoy the rest of the Easter long weekend.

Using an Embossing Folder for Christmas Card Club

 Good morning and an extremely cold and frosty one is too.

 It's time for our little group of friends to make another card to get us ahead of the game  and have no panics in December. We just challenge ourselves and this time we are using festive embossing folders which was Zoe's choice.

My Card

This Cuttlebug embossing folder is the very first one I ever bought after I got my Cuttlebug die cutting machine all those hundreds of years ago - well it was probably about 2014! 😊 I still use my Cuttlebug because it is small and handy and useful if I want to to my Craft and Laugh group.

Hope you have a great day whatever you are planning to do.
