Say Thank You with Flowers

I was shown how to make a card with the hanging Flower by my Daughter, Artyfartymack. I then thought by adding the Thank You sentiment, it would be suitable to enter into the Dutch Dare Challenge. Such a simple card to make but looks difficult, it is a style I shall no doubt use again.

Lady in Red

Decided to use parts of the Tamara Sketch and combine with Daring Cardmakers. Not really any need for Valentines cards, so it was good to be able to use my little red heart button on this card. Amazed to see that one of my cards has been featured on the Tamara site from 15th Jan. Her sketches are great as they are usually quite simple - Ideal for me.

Two Little Love Birds

I enjoy attempting the various challenges, but as I only need cards for my friends and family, it is not cost effective to make a card for every challenge, so I try to combine one card for more than one challenge. This little card has been made to the Tamara Thursday Sketch and fits well with Dutch Dare use of colours Green - Blue and Brown

Claires 30th Birthday Card

I made this card for my daughters 30th birthday as we were skiing for the occasion and I used this sweet little skier stamp which I found on e-bay. I coloured this with my new Prisma pencils which Claire had bought me for Christmas so I am entering it in the Cute card Thursday Challenge to use something you got for Christmas, as well as the Charisma Card Challenge to make something pink.

Just a quick challenge with the Penny Black Embossing Challenge to keep my hand in before going off at 4.30 Sunday morning skiing - hope I can remeber how
