Card for Alex

Evening Everyone

Unfortunately my blogging is a bit sporadic at the moment. I am in the middle of rearranging the house so I finally get my craft room/office now my son has moved out & I have loads of orders waiting to be created. Juggling these with my new gardening hobby & a new craft group has meant that my blogging has had to take a back seat. However, I did get this card made today :-)

I just love this image by Bugaboo & ended up buying a few :-) I used the sketch over at Friday Sketch Challenge. The papers are all freebies & I used Distress Inks around the edge of the image & sentiment. Here is a close up.
 I hope I will be back again soon with another card x Clare x

Daisy's Image Inspirations - Wedded Bliss

Good morning everyone. I am pleased to say we haven't had any snow yet & this morning the back door is wide open & the blackbirds are singing in the sunshine :-) Over at Daisy Doodles we have some great projects to inspire you. Miss Daisy has also reduced the price of the image for a Limited Time so pop over & grab it while you can.

I wanted to keep the card fairly simple so I coloured using Promarkers & layered onto some HOTP papers. I added some liquid pearls to the flowers & Stickles to ner veil & necklace. I then made a pin to go in the ribbon bow & added the sentiment "Love".

I carried the theme through to the inside of the card & using the papers & sentiment tags. I also found this great definition of a Kiss in the paper stack.

Make sure you check out all the other great projects on the blog . Our current challenge "Spring" runs till Sun 8th April x Clare x
