DragonFly Dreams March Challenge - Outdoors

 Good morning . Today I have my DT card for the Dragonfly Dreams challenge blog.


I used an image from Joanna Sheen which reminds me of driving out for Sunday lunch.

I then added mats and layers using a brick embossing folder and a brick paper.

It's very simple but a great on for those pesky males in our lives who are more difficult to make cards for.

Why not pop over to the blog and check out the catds from my team mates and maybe you will decide to join in with us?

Take care.

Christmas Card Club Songs/Carols

 Good morning.  I have been missing for a while and have missed the last two challenges but I was determined to participate this time.

My Card


I used a very old but well loved Lili of the Valley rubber stamp coloured with Promarkers, I printed the musical score onto vellum. 

The cold weather and probably more snow are due to return later in the week. I doubt it will be like just before Christmas when we were snowed in for almost a week. I'm cold enough now!  I do seem tofeel the cold much more these days.  My brother calls me a soft southerner now not the hardy northerner I used to be.

Take care.

Two Patterned Papers for Christmas Card Club

 Good morning. Time for the Christmas Card Club ladies to show a card with two patterned papers.

This is a 6" square base card and I have used papres from a Papermania pack from many years ago "Home for Christmas".  I have some scraps left because at the time  bought two pads because I liked it so much. Sadly there is hardly any left at all now. The sentiment is from Little Claire - again very old. I used Britannia small rose die and the leaves are also Britannia but they were in my stash box so not sure which they are. The sweet image is an LOTV topper

Hope you are all well and managing to keep warm.

Take care.

Embossing for Christmas Card Club

 Good morning. I hope this finds everybody well. 

Our first challenge of 2023 for the Christmas Card Club is to use embossing.

My Card

I used Sue Wilson's merry Christmas die and Falling Snow embossing folder also from Sue Wilson. Unfortunately the embossing isn't showing up too well in the photo.  The tree die is from Stampin' Up.

Take care.
